After practice Tuesday Chicago Bulls G Derrick Rose spoke about the mindset of sitting out games.  Before his return last evening against the Detroit Pistons.

"I know a lot of people get mad when they see me sit out or whatever, but I think a lot of people don't understand that when I sit out it's not because of this year.  I'm thinking about long term. I'm thinking about after I'm done with basketball.  Having graduations to go to, having meetings to go to, I don't want to be in my meetings all sore.  Or be at my son's graduation all sore just because of something I did in the past. (I'm) just learning and being smart."
