VIDEO: Derrick Rose playing basketball one-on-one.... with a samurai

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

As the world waits for the return of Derrick Rose to an NBA court, video surfaced this weekend of Rose at a promotional event in Japan, taking poor out-matched fools one-on-one. Some things to note here: The crossover looks good, he seems able to plant, and his explosion looks great for someone who isn't going full speed. You want it to look effortless, and it does. All good signs.

Oh, and he dunked past a samurai.

You know, like you do.

Rose is slated to return to regular season NBA action for the first time since the Bulls' 2012 first-round playoff series against Philadelphia on October 29th in Miami against the defending champion Miami Heat.
