Chicago Bulls Unveil Derrick Rose Statue At United Center
CHICAGO—As the Chicago Bulls players face elimination this weekend at the hands of the surging Brooklyn Nets, Bulls execs have already moved beyond the playoffs and started memorializing the 2013 season.
While the statue artist has cleared the statue for unveiling—see below “street test”— Derrick has requested that it not be on display until he knows, in his mind, that it’s ready.

The Chicago Blackhawks eye history as they could tie the NHL record of consecutive games without a loss in regulation. The Hawks are 12-0-3 and own the best record in the NHL. Along with an explosive offense, the defense has been a large part of their winning ways but tonight they will be missing one of their best defensemen, Brent Seabrook.
The Vancouver Canucks who handed the Blackhawks one of their three losses, visit the United Center tonight.
The Chicago Bulls visit the Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Hornet tonight in their first game since the All-Star break. Derrick Rose is occupying much of the Bulls news, as he participated in five-on-five for the first time this season. No return date has been set for Rose, who is recovering from an ACL injury.
