Derrick Rose out for the season with a torn ACL

It's official and straight from the source: the 2012 NBA Playoffs start like poop. The Bulls have announced that Derrick Rose is done for the remainder of the 2011-12 postseason after tearing his ACL in Game One of the Bulls' first round series with the 76ers:

This also means a lot more John Lucas III and no Olympics for Rose:

There are varying possibilities as to the extent of the tear and there's no official word on cartilage damage, so a timetable for rehabilitation -- let alone recovery -- is a complete guessing game at the moment.

The reigning MVP sustained the injury landing awkwardly on a jump-step toward the end of the blowout.

I'm stunned. Just stunned.
