Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose will make his much-anticipated return to the court on Tuesday night when his Bulls take on the Miami Heat. Rose, who missed the entirety of the 2012-13 season, told reporters this week that he’s improved his basketball IQ during his time away from the court:

I think I’m way better as a player. My IQ has gotten higher and just the way that I play I think I’m a more efficient player. And my teammates allow me to play the way I normally play, so that’s a blessing (ESPN).

It goes without saying the Rose’s return will be one of the biggest ongoing stories of the upcoming NBA season. His decision to rehab his knee for the whole year in 2012 was a controversial one, as some Chicago fans and NBA analysts felt he was being selfish. Every single misstep and poor game from Rose will be over-analyzed to death, so buckle in and get ready for a wild ride courtesy of the sports media!
