Rose’s dunk just nasty

There’s a saying around basketball: if you don’t jump, you don’t get in the poster.

Goran Dragic, whoever he is, foolishly jumped and got himself on the poster of Derrick Rose’s best dunk with the Bulls.

Following a Suns miss, the Bulls headed out on the break and Rose went in for the dunk. When Gragic came over to challenge, Rose soared in the air, pulled the ball back behind his head and threw down a two-handed dunk despite being fouled.

Even though the game was on the road, U.S. Airways Center was buzzing.

“I didn’t know he was gonna jump at first,” Rose said. “I was just gonna go up and dunk it. I guess I pulled it back and put it in.”

Seriously, it might be a few days before Dragic can watch ESPN again after getting posterized like that.

“That just bumped somebody out of the top-10 greatest dunks ever,” Bulls guard John Salmons said. “Whoever was 10 is out.”

Said Joakim Noah: “That was a crazy dunk. He got his first body. That’s what we call it.”
