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:

I'm stunned. Just stunned.
