Derrick Rose won't change his aggressive style of play this season

You know I may be a Los Angeles Lakers fan, but I’m pretty excited to see Derrick Rose come back 110% and compete at a high level once again.

Last year the league wasn’t really the same without him. I was used to seeing highlights of him storming the paint and putting up ridiculous shots while drawing the foul, or dunking on Goran Dragic.

Yes, to me that has been one of the best posterizing dunks I have seen by a point guard in a long time. With Derrick Rose healthy and ready for the season, it looks like he’s improved his perimeter shooting over the summer. Not too long ago he was on an Adidas tour and played a couple of scrimmage games.

This gave him some time he needed to get comfortable and settled during game situations. Now I know they’re scrimmages, but it’s not like they’re just walking around and playing a game of horse.

D-Rose’s perimeter game may change this season, but Rose claims his aggressive style of play will not.

“I play the same way. The only thing that’s gonna change is my confidence level.. The only thing I’ve been working on is shooting longer shots, because I think if people have to come out and stick with me a little bit further, it opens up the court.” Derrick Rose said in an interview.

If Rose is able to improve his three point shot this season (career best 33.2 percent back in 2010-2011) and everybody can stay on the same page, the Chicago Bulls will be a forced to be reckoned with this upcoming season.
