But there was indeed a spirit about Rose yesterday that said he doesn't think for one second of himself as a diminished player. His logic is that if he was able to get the left knee so strong after the ACL tear, the meniscus tear doesn't merit all the depression surrounding the Bulls. And truly, the Bulls players have been largely dispirited since Rose went down … until Miami showed up Thursday at United Center and the Bulls, particularly Joakim Noah, finally started to play with what we've come to know as their true personality. When asked if winning a championship is further down his priority list in the wake of this second injury, Rose said, "No … no the only thing I'm missing is a championship. My career is going to be judged by championships … I could complain and pout about this … But I'd rather smile than be sad … I have faith. He has some plan for me. I don't now what it is. But I know he has something big for me. My story isn't done yet."
