SHARE Lou Canellis goes all in on Derrick Rose, Bulls

As disappointment increasingly grows with the Bulls’ lackluster season, fans and media alike are showing their frustration.

Fox 32 News sports anchor Lou Canellis went all in on the organization Tuesday but saved his most condemning comments for Derrick Rose.

An incensed Canellis took the Bulls point guard to task for sitting out Monday’s loss to the Hornets with “general soreness.”

From “Lou’s View:”

“I’ll never question a player who says he’s hurt, but sore! Everyone at the end of a seven-game road trip has general soreness. Rose’s teammates needed him last night. No Butler, no Noah, no Mirotic and desperate for a win. Sore, smarting or sick—this team needed it’s hottest player. They’re free-falling right out of the playoff picture. The Bulls had no shot without Rose, and they knew it. They were defeated at the tip, giving up 38 first-quarter points to a below-five-hundred team.

“Defense is about effort, not talent. So quit making excuses for Rose. He should have been out there.”

In just over a month, the Bulls have gone from contending for the top spot in the Eastern Conference, to fighting for the eighth playoff spot after dropping 12 of their last 17 games.
