Derrick Rose is one of five point guards in training camp for Team USA, and he is the only one who has these three things in play right now:

_ He is trying to initiate a career comeback after playing only 10 games the past two seasons after injuries to both of his knees.

_ He is the only one of the five Team USA point guards who has won an MVP award. Also, he started for Mike Krzyzewski four years ago in Turkey at the World Championship.

_ His coach, Tom Thibodeau, is an assistant on the U.S. staff and is overseing Rose's scrimmages with an eagle eye.

Columnist Bobby Gonzalez attended the first day of practice and wrote that he thinks Rose will make the final 12-man roster, along with Stephen Curry and Kyrie Irving (Damian Lillard and John Wall would miss the cut. I wrote in my camp preview that I thought Rose would be the easiest to cut.

So what are we to make of Rose's strong play and strong words following the colclusion of Day One of Team USA's training camp? I discussed on the Boers and Bernstein Show on 670-AM The Score in Chicago.
