World Cup is all about one player

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) -
The World Cup is one of the premiere international competitions in the sport of basketball. Short of the Olympics and NBA Finals, it may be the most prestigious tournament in the world.
This summer's edition of the World Cup promises to be enthralling, sure, but the competition itself is secondary to the main storyline - the return of Derrick Rose.
The Chicago Bulls former MVP has played exactly 10 games in the last two seasons. That's 67 less than the esteemed Hollis Thompson, or 186 fewer than LeBron James if you count the playoffs.
Rose suffered two devastating knee injuries in the last two calendar years. His 2012-13 season was lost, and although the Bulls medically cleared him to play, Rose didn't.
