Video: Norris Cole welcomes Derrick Rose back with crazy crossover

The Chicago Bulls opened the 2013-14 NBA season with a 107-95 loss on the home court of the defending world champion Miami Heat. What was supposed to be a hard-fought, close game was instead a blowout.

Superstar point guard Derrick Rose looked rusty in his first game back after missing all of last season, especially trying to guard Miami’s Norris Cole near the baseline.

Watching the video below, it’s probably a good thing D-Rose took as much time to recover as he did. If his knee wasn’t 100-percent healthy, who knows what would have happened here? Cole already broke both of his ankles with a sick crossover.
