Chicago Bulls point guard, Derrick Rose, seems to be back in basketball form as he trains with Team USA for the 2014 FIBA World Cup which will be in Spain from August 30th through September 14th. Video from his training with Team USA shows Rose stroking baskets from the corner behind the three point line and also him going up for a slam dunk.

Even though he has had two knee surgeries, he seems to have re-cooperated well from the last surgery and on the road back to being the MVP D. Rose we knew before injuries kept him out for the last three seasons.

For Rose and the Chicago Bulls, their playoff contention is off to a great start as they have signed several dynamic players who can make the Bulls run for the championship an interesting one. One important signing was that of Pau Gasol who, coming from the Los Angeles Lakers, will give the Bulls some added defense and offense.

The Bulls have also signed Nikola Mirotic for three years at $17 million. He has spent the last three years playing overseas for Real Madrid of Spain's Liga ACB.

Added to the Bulls' roster is Doug McDermott, their first round draft pick and who also was last season's college player of the year and free agent point guard Aaron Brooks who is in his sixth year and split time with the Denver Nuggets and the Houston Rockets.

Now that Kirk Hinrich has resigned, head coach To thibideau this seems to make the Bulls one of the most fearful team during this upcoming 2014-2015 NBA season.
