JoNo and DRose at US Open finals 

Post#1 » by beeshma » Mon Sep 13, 2021 1:48 am

The TV cameras just showed some celebrities in the crowd. Looks like Joakim Noah and Derrick Rose are there with some of their children. So good to see these good friends cheering on other athletes! I'm rooting for Medvedev, but obviously if Djokovic wins he gets the Grand Slam which would also be a nice outcome.

It's on ESPN2.

I love it. As much as there’s a lack of closure with the dynasty team in a lot of us, I think similarly there's a lack of closure with the Rose teams as well.

It always adds to the sting when you realize how close these guys are and we could never win. Along with Deng and Taj these guys seem so incredibly close knit in a way the championship era never was.

And even if it was correct it's not like the OP was calling for immediate trades to bring them back onto the team..

Also Derrick and Joplin are my favourite Country music duo...

Move on? Move on from what? The fact that the 2 former Bulls were hanging out together?

Such an odd thing to say.

It's good to hear Jo is hanging out with his little bro even after all this time.

Should have upgraded from Bogans at the deadline ....

And if only Noah would have grabbed that offensive rebound vs. Cleveland we would have been up 3-1

I encourage you to do some soul searching regarding what sports is really about. Yikes.

Agreed, those two will always be apart of Chicago sports history regardless of them not winning a championship. They returned our franchise to NBA post season relevance.

Right, we should only be allowed to talk about current Bulls and current Bulls topics only. No discussion of past teams or players should be permitted /S

Their close knit-ness is just rare in sports in general. Anyone who follows these guys on social media knows they get together relatively frequently and are still each other's biggest fans. As a Bulls fan who loves those 2010s teams and players, you just love to see it.

They might not have ever won a ring, but they did a lot for the city and the organization, and for that they'll always hold a special place in Chicagoans hearts.
