At long last, Derrick Rose is back. Not just playing preseason games, either. The Bulls' game Tuesday at Miami is the most anticipated Chicago season opener since, well, maybe ever. What did everyone miss most? You can start with this list. Andrew Barber, Fake Shore Drive owner/creator For Rose, I respect the way that he cares so deeply about his city. The day he broke down in tears during his Adidas press conference because of the violence in Chicago, more specifically in Englewood, was so powerful and sincere.

Bulls fans should know by now not to take Derrick Rose for granted. Not only for his astounding hoops skills, but for the way he puts his team first and oozes humility.

The winner will be announced Dec. 6, and in the meantime RedEye takes a shot at how he stacks up against the other candidates.   Derrick Rose, Bulls guard Odds: 4-1 Why he'll win: Besides his showstopping play on the court, Rose gives back to Chicago (helping to build playgrounds)

Sunday marks the one-year anniversary that the Bulls franchise was set back at least a year with Derrick Rose's ACL tear in his left knee. Rose suffered through the lockout-shortened season with a string of injuries that ended with one of the more devastating things that can happen to an athlete. Bulls fans may remember what the day was like, April 28, 2012, in Chicago: Cold, damp with overcast skies. With the city feeling like the team was on a collision course in the Eastern Conference finals with Miami, nobody could've imagined how the weather that day would be symbolic for the Bulls.

I'm not sure if anybody in Chicago has heard about this, but apparently Derrick Rose is back playing basketball again. Remember Derrick Rose? Little fast strong guy who won the NBA MVP a few years ago and then tore an important knee ligament? Wears No. 1 on his Bulls jersey? Think way back in your memory. He might not spring immediately to mind because the media have been oddly silent on his injury, rehab process and subsequent return. But he's back now. He'll be right there on the court with all the Bulls you've come to know and love, such as Nazr Mohammed and Marquis Teague.

There's no arguing that the Blackhawks are the shining beacon of Chicago sports right now. Really, it's not even close. They have two Stanley Cups in four seasons and everything a franchise needs to be successful:  Players: Duh. Toews. Kane. Sharp. Crawford. Hossa. Keith. The list goes on. No first names necessary. Management/coach: A smart trade here, a re-signing there - it's all come up aces. And Coach Q and his mustache take a backseat to no one. Intangibles: All those overtimes in the 2013 playoffs, all those wins.

The last time the Indiana Pacers were at the United Center, they were celebrating a 95-90 win over the Bulls. Too much celebrating, according to Derrick Rose. After the game he expressed his frustration. "I'll never forget how they celebrated just from winning this game," Rose said Jan. 25. "I can't wait to play them again. " Turns out, the way the Bulls played, it seems as if many of them didn't like that public display of celebration at the United Center as the Bulls rolled to a 92-72 win Monday night.

There's a popular saying - criticism? - that you only have to tune in to the last five minutes of an NBA regular-season game because that's when things get serious. That applied Wednesday night in the Milwaukee-Bulls game. After 43 minutes of back-and-forth basketball, the game turned decidedly intense as the Bucks mounted an 8-2 run around the five-minute mark of the fourth quarter to take a 93-91 lead at the Bradley Center. That's when Derrick Rose asserted himself.

Hall of Fame basketball writer Sam Smith probably has forgotten more about basketball than most people remember. But when it came to Derrick Rose's knee injury and the backlash he took for sitting out the 2012-13 season, Smith saw something he hadn't witnessed in 30 years covering professional sports: fans turning on the homegrown star of the hometown team. RedEye talked to the co-author of "The Jordan Rules" for his take on Rose's injury and the 2013-14 Bulls. Talk about why you were upset by the backlash toward Rose.

The days are getting darker for Bulls fans, and I'm not just talking about the end of daylight saving time. Millionaires are fighting with billionaires over a few percentage points of a multibillion-dollar pot. If you're a Bulls fan, you've braced yourself for a cold, hard truth: There might not be any ball this season. Before you compose a handwritten letter to David Stern, streaked with tears of frustration, anger and whiskey (we've all been there), know that you've got a friend.
