Kidding. I'm not going to do that. But it's a good sign.

The big thing for Rose is the mental aspect, though. Players talk a lot about how that's the hard part. It's trusting the knee, being able to focus when you haven't been on the court in so long, and being able to play with the reaction speed necessary at the NBA level. That takes much longer to come back from. We'll continue to wait, but at least there's light on the horizon, and the long, hard night of Rose's injury may be coming to dawn.
