Derrick Rose Sports Illustrated

The 2013/14 NBA season is upon us and f0r the “preview issue” from Sports Illustrated, they’ve put Chicago’s Derrick Rose on the cover. For any of us fans of the Bulls, and maybe even some haters of LBJ, the anticipation for “the return” has played a key role in this summer’s off-season so it’s great to see that it’s not just this city that’s anxiously waiting to see how D. Rose will be this season.

Apparently, they’ve also written a story on the legendary ’85 Bears (Super Bowl champs) so this issue is looking like a must-buy for sports fans. Grab your copy at newsstands.
