This is not "The Return" that Bulls fans were hoping for. Ten games into his NBA comeback after tearing his ACL in April 2012, Derrick Rose returned to the operating table Monday after damaging the meniscus in his right knee Friday. A torn meniscus was the "best" worst-case scenario for Rose with regard to his "good" knee, but it's still another surgery, another intensive rehab, and now, another lost season for Rose and the Bulls. It seems unfair for a guy - who seems to be a good person both on and off the court - to have to go through a second knee surgery in just over 18 months.

As legions of fans awaited news about Derrick Rose's MRI results Saturday, Bulls legend Scottie Pippen played video games with his fans in a mall. If Pippen had any insider information or was worried about the effect those results would have on the team, he wasn't showing it. "We have to move on as a team no matter what the situation is," Pippen said, just hours before it was revealed that Rose had torn the meniscus in his right knee. "Right now, we're hoping the best for Derrick.

The story of the night at the United Center on Halloween was--of course--Derrick Rose's return to action in front of the home fans and his game-winning shot with less than 10 seconds to play. The morning after, however, another person is emerging as a star of the night: Mikey Gendell. He is one of the fans dressed in Victorian garb that got some screen time during TNT's national broadcast, but it is Scott Strazzante's picture of the fan after the game that has people talking.

Now that Derrick Rose is back, the Bulls are destined to win the NBA championship ... … is what Bulls fans would love to believe. And you can't blame them for their Rose-y outlook. The superstar's knee appears to be 100 percent and he says he's better than he was before his injury. We'll have to wait until next spring to find out if the 2013-14 season plays out that way. On Monday, all the Bulls could do was try to knock off the defending champion Heat. In Miami. On the night they received their rings.

Winters in Englewood always seem a little colder than anywhere else in the city. Buried underneath all the snow and ice lies a foundational feeling of situational hopelessness and desperation. But when it comes to Derrick Rose, while some may have an aversion to calling him a role model or a hero in a place like Englewood, where he's from, he's certainly both those things. He's also a beacon of hope for many who live there. For adults, there exists a sense of pride that Rose is "one of ours.

The 2013-14 NBA season kicks off Tuesday with one of the most anticipated matchups of the year: Bulls-Heat. Derrick Rose is back. The Heat will get their championship rings for a second straight year. And if you were looking for a better storyline on opening night, there isn't one. "It's the start to the season. It's a big game," Bulls forward Taj Gibson said after a recent practice. "It's one of those games where old memories come back fast. " And those memories aren't fond ones, especially when it comes to the playoffs.

How will this year's Bulls team do with Derrick Rose back? Can the team make a leap into the "genuine contender" category, or will their style of play lead to more injuries at just the wrong time? Will the team make a trade or stand pat? These are the obvious burning questions and they are boring. I want answers to the itching questions nobody else is asking. 10. Why is coach Tom Thibodeau so cagey about his favorite composer? In an offseason interview with Grantland's Zach Lowe, classical music buff Thibodeau declined to answer a question about his favorite composer or piece.

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.

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.

No more suits. No more trying to interpret body language during warm-ups. No more waiting. On Wednesday, Derrick Rose was back, playing at the United Center for the first time since his knee injury in April 2012.  As far as the Bulls were concerned, Wednesday's game against Detroit was as much about fixing the rough edges as their point guard's triumphant return. But for everyone else watching at the United Center or on TV, it was all about D-Rose.  Here are the Top 5 moments from his first game back in front of the home fans.  Little help?
