Balling: Derrick Rose Guarantees Fresh Legs for Opening Game

Derrick Rose had previously said that he wouldn’t return to the court from his ACL injury until he is “110 percent.” Apparently, the Chicago Bulls’ star has reached his goal. While attending an Adidas event in Spain, the NBA guard told reporters that he will “definitely” play in the season opener.

“I should be able to play in the first game of the season,” Rose told , according to “I know I’m anxious right now to play. My health is everything right now, it’s 100 percent. But right now, the first game … I will definitely be playing it.”

Rose, who is on a European tour promoting his Adidas clothing line and shoes, confirmed that he’s mentally and physically ready to play and gives coach Tom Thibodeau credit for helping him prepare.

“[Mentally] I’m just strong as I’ve been,” Rose said. “I had the time to think about what’s important in my life, getting better on the court, watching a lot of film with [Thibodeau], asking him questions, talking to him about two times a week. … So he’s been kind of a professor to me.”

The Chicago Bulls schedule for the 2013-2014 season hasn’t been released yet. More details on Derrick Rose‘s first game coming soon…
