Sometimes, the NBA calendar just seems to give us fans exactly what we want.

Hot on the heels of Kevin Durant's first ever battle with the Oklahoma City Thunder and his first meeting with Russell Westbrook since his departure, the very next night we have another spectacle on our hands.

Derrick Rose shall be lining up against the Chicago Bulls on Friday night.

The point guard was the youngest-ever MVP during his time with his hometown franchise, but after a couple of ACL injuries, the 28-year-old started failing to justify his massive contract.

Despite his best efforts, Rose isn't expecting a nice reception at the United Center.

"That would be a dream, but I know I'm going to get some boos here and there," Rose said, according to ESPN's Ian Begley. "It's all a part of the game ... It's not going to affect the way that I play and how bad I want to win that game."

It would be strange for Chicago to harbour any bad blood on their end. After all, it was the franchise that shipped him off to the Big Apple. So is Rose bitter?

"There's no bad blood there at all," Rose said. "I totally understand the business of this game ... I never felt that way about getting traded or me coming to this team. I always took it as a blessing that I had the opportunity to come in this (New York) market, this franchise, and to be able to create a culture here."
