Alley-Oop To Derrick Rose Is Special

The Bulls keep winning — they beat Sacramento by 40 points last night in Chicago — and have earned the franchise's first 50-win season since the 1998 title year. They've been so good not only because their point guard is Derrick Rose, a candidate for the league MVP, but also because their team chemistry is such that someone like Keith Bogans can lead the fast break while Rose swoops down the sideline and springs for an alley-oop like this one. The most impressive replay on this clip is the third shot we see — in full speed from above, Rose's ascent is so rapid that it's a wonder he doesn't careen directly into the backboard. But he controls himself and throws it down, because Derrick Rose " special."
