Screw it, I'm in. No more of my "happy to be here" nonsense. I now see red. At the end of Game 1, after the Bulls had finished icing over the Heat, my brother texted me from L.A.: "Daaaaaamn! Think we can sweep?" I laughed at this, but when I told my buddy Jesse, he cheered. "Yes!" he said, clapping his hands together. "I like where his head is at. " And you know what? So do I. To approximately quote Derrick Rose from fall 2010, "Why not the Bulls? Why can't they beat the MVP of the league?

Here in Chicago, sports talk has become consumed by snide disdain for star point guard Derrick Rose as he remains on the bench during the playoffs while the Bulls hobble on after an impressive if battering series against the Brooklyn Nets. Now that they're playing LeBron James and the Heat, I hear Bulls fans making openly hostile comments about Rose remaining on the injured list despite being “cleared to play.” My favorite overheard joke is that the Bulls are going to erect another statue outside the United Center, this one of Rose peering from the end of the bench in a suit.

There's a disturbing pattern that emerges when star athletes get hurt. Just about anytime sports fans question an injury to a player, the first thing that is questioned is that player's "manhood. " The player is even more scrutinized when the injury occurs before or during a playoff game. Next, fans run to social media questioning that player's mettle without having all the facts. And once they learn the facts, there are still those who are not as forgiving as they should be. Now Luol Deng has entered the category of "questionable" sports injuries along with Derrick Rose and Jay Cutler.

More often than not, the playoffs bring out the best in players - and in fans. But on occasion, they also can bring out the worst. There are a number of Bulls fans who fall into the latter category, who have been spewing hateful and vile things toward Derrick Rose lately via social media. These fans feel the Bulls could have won Game 1 of their playoff series against Brooklyn, and won by a bigger margin in Game 2 had Rose been in uniform. While he may be in good shape physically, Rose is still trying to get himself ready mentally.

It's that time again. Hockey playoffs, basketball playoffs, NFL Draft and baseball. It's a lot, but we should acknowledge one thing first. It is going to be one long baseball season here in Chicago. My hat goes off to two pawns who will be paying the price for prior mistakes. Dale Sveum to the north, and Rick Hahn on the South Side. First, Sveum. By the time the Cubs rebuild their franchise, this guy will be so far gone. First off, it's only April and he got a vote of confidence from his GM. That's a bad sign.

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 watched in horror Tuesday as the Bulls won a playoff game. Don't get me wrong, I love the team and want them to win. They fight with the tenacity of a junkyard dog, ignoring injury and a lack of offensive talent. But the Bulls as currently constituted are so obviously sore and tired and broken down that it's almost sad to watch them win a playoff game. Every victory forces another game. Derrick Rose is the magic word when considering these Bulls. They have been gallant in his absence, but they top out at 90 points a night unless somebody has one of their two or three best games of the season.

The Bulls are headed to their fifth consecutive postseason - without Derrick Rose, no less - and it's their eighth appearance in the past nine years. Playoff time has always been exciting in Chicago and this year should be no different. So RedEye asked current Bulls and veteran reporters about their favorite NBA postseason memories, either watching as a kid or playing in the NBA. And as you would expect, Michael Jordan's name came up. A lot. Kirk Hinrich My favorite playoff memory, probably, is Michael Jordan in the finals in Utah.
