Whether or not Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose will return to action this season is still up in the air -- the young point guard has been cleared for action by his doctors but has said he doesn't feel quite comfortable yet -- but when he does return, expect a superior Derrick Rose.

NBA insider Ric Bucher spoke to and spent time with Rose last week and has says, via Twitter, Rose has "expanded his offensive moves". These include a higher-arching, smoother three point shot, a step-back quick release midrange shot, and a left-handed verison of his deadly push-shot from 10 feet (the same shot he used to beat the Lakers on opening night of the 2012 NBA season).

Perhaps bigger news is that Bucher claims Rose has grown a inch. 

This is what Bucher wrote: 

It seems unlikely for someone to grow in height at 24, but I'd swear he's gone from 6'3" to 6'4". I'm the former and we were eye level the last time I spoke to him.

And finally, Chicago Bulls fans should be happy to hear this:

All in all, he seemed to be in great spirits and, while it was merely a pre-game workout and a brief post-game conversation, I fully expect DRose 2.0 to be even better than the original.
