Derrick Rose Alley-Oop: Bulls Star Throws Down Monstrous Dunk Against Pistons (VIDEO)

Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose showed why he should be in the slam dunk contest in Monday night's game against the Detroit Pistons. Early in the fourth quarter, Rose ran a fast break and dished the ball too Ronnie Brewer. Similar to Blake Griffin, Rose called for the alley-oop pass, flew through the air and slammed the ball in with one hand. Bulls forward Carlos Boozer and the rest of the bench jumped out of their seats as the crowd went wild. "Forget Blake Griffin. We got D. Rose," the announcer said. Scroll down to watch the video.
