The last time the Bucks saw the Bulls, Derrick Rose was putting the finishing touches on a 30-point, 11-assist night by draining a 20-foot jumper at the buzzer to give Chicago a 106-104 victory in Milwaukee.

Great players don’t always make potential game winning shots. But they take them, which is what Derrick Rose did Wednesday in Milwaukee, and his step back jumper settled through the net as time expired for a 106-104 Bulls victory.

Heck, I didn’t even know All-Star voting had started with the season just a few weeks old. And now it’s about over for the fans.
That’s because with the release of the first returns Thursday, the starting lineups appear set with Derrick Rose to start again at guard.
I’m not suggesting, mind you, that your vote doesn’t count and you …
