Chicago radio station asks Bulls fans to dial up pressure on Derrick Rose

A Chicago radio station is asking Bulls fans to write open letters to Derrick Rose in hopes of pressuring him to return to the court for the playoffs.

CBS Chicago/670 The Score is offering frustrated Bulls supporters the opportunity to express their feelings on Rose's absence from the postseason, with a selection of the letters to be published.

The Bulls, slowed by Rose's absence, as well as, injuries to Joakim Noah, Taj Gibson and Kirk Hinrich, find themselves leading their first-round playoff series with the Nets, 3-2.

Rose's delay in returning to action a year after tearing his ACL and two months after doctors cleared him to play has been a controversial topic in Chicago and NBA circles. The NBA's 2010-11 Most Valuable Player has been scrimmaging for weeks, but still remains reluctant to test his surgically repaired knee in a game.

A video of a recovering Rose dunking and a national Adidas video ad campaign centered around his rehabilitation have left Bulls fans scratching their heads or venting their bewilderment via social media.

Rose recently disputed that he and the Bulls were at odds over the timeline for his return to the court after it was reported in March that he had received medical clearance to play.
