Poll: When D-Rose comes back what do you expect? (21 member(s) have cast votes)

After his injury, surgery & rehab what do you think Rose will play like?

  1. 100%. Didnt miss a step. Superstar Caliber as usual. (2 votes [9.52%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 9.52%

  2. 90%. Still a great PG at Top 3 in the NBA but slipped a bit because the athletisism on his 1st step will never be as explosive. (10 votes [47.62%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 47.62%

  3. 80%. Playing at All Star level. Definetly a top 5 PG still but isnt the threat he was prior to the injury. (5 votes [23.81%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 23.81%

  4. 70%. A great player but not the all star franchise player he once was. Hes a top 10 PG but not the Franchise player we remember. (4 votes [19.05%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 19.05%

  5. 60%. Top 20 PG. A great addition to a team looking to add a final piece. (0 votes [0.00%])

    Percentage of vote: 0.00%

  6. 50%. Kirk is the starter. Rose is a decent PG coming off the bench. Still better than Blake. Wanna trade? (0 votes [0.00%])

    Percentage of vote: 0.00%

  7. 40% or lower. A former MVP could be headed to the D League. What could have been. (0 votes [0.00%])

    Percentage of vote: 0.00%

Personally I hope the dude comes back 90-100%.
But because of his style of play I don't believe a completely torn ACL will allow that to happen.
I'm thinking he will be in the 70-80% area of what I described above.
This is a public pole so people cant hate on the guy.

I think the responses below 80% are just laughable.

He'll come back a better playing PG not needing to rely on his first step quickness only.

This time off will teach him to conserve himself a little more and know when to explode and make him an all around complete game and he'll come back picking his spots more, being a better jump shooter and a passer, and will turn on the jets in a more strategic fashion.

I expect him to be very tentative when he comes back around March, don't expect him to be near 100% (or as close as he can get to it) until the '13-14 season. He'll pick and choose when he makes use of his explosive unlike before when he'd just attack with reckless abandon. Expect him to lose a bit of quickness, but not enough that his career suddenly plummets from what could have been. His struggles are going to be more mental than physical.

This. It'll take alot of mental toughness for Derrick to return to his pre-injury superstar form. I'll be rooting for him because he's one of my favorite players.

I think he'll be back to near 100% in due time, but for a while (which could be the remainder of the season) he'll be slowly getting back into the grind of things, kind of like what L.A.K.E.R. said. Missing that many months is a long ass time to be away from competitive basketball. There isn't really an option for that so I didn't vote, but that would be my guess.

i agree with you and LAKER. It's all in the mind. Mind over matter. I really want him to be like he was in 2011. But maybe now he can attack when and where on the floor. Sounds like the mamba when he started to get his shot

Depends when he comes back. If this season, then he'll be off. If he comes back nest season, I don't see much of a drop off outside of rust. If I'm a bulls fan, I'd be hoping he just takes the full year off.
