VIDEO: Derrick Rose's first home introductions since ACL injury

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

After roughly 18 months of healing, training, and waiting, Derrick Rose got to start his first game for the Chicago Bulls at the United Center Wednesday night when he played a preseason game against the Detroit Pistons. It was also the first time he was introduced in front of the home crowd and his home city since tearing his ACL in the 2012 playoffs.

The home crowd gave him a very excited reaction to his introduction after not getting that for the entire 2012-13 season.

When he touched the ball during the first minute of play and made a layup against the Pistons' defense, the crowd seemed pretty thrilled with that as well.
