For a while it was a fun word play and take off on Michael Jordan’s famous two-word press release in 1995: I’m back! And so it was for Derrick Rose, though fitfully without a finish in 2012-13, then sadly after a few weeks in 2013-14 and again last summer with USA Basketball and this season until, alas, he was gone …

It was the first game for Pau Gasol after he was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers in 2008. Gasol took a pass, spun and put the ball in smoothly. Kobe Bryant lit up. As he ran back on defense, he yelled to coach Phil Jackson, “We’ve got a big man.”
