PssssssstttHey, Bulls fans. We've got some good news for you. Derrick Rose is back. Yes, DERRICK ROSE IS BACK!!!

According to Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, D-Rose has finally regained the speed and explosiveness that he had prior to tearing his ACL during the 2012 NBA Playoffs. Thibs worked out with Rose recently and saw it for himself.

"I worked him out about a week ago," he revealed late yesterday. "It was great…Watching the way he's moving now, there's a confidence. [Reporters] may not have been able to see the total work he was putting in. But he was putting in an enormous amount of work each and every day. He just never got to the explosiveness he was comfortable with. I think he's there now. He feels great, and that's the most important thing."

Welcome back, D-Rose. Now is it October yet so we can see this speed and explosiveness for ourselves?
