Derrick Rose trade rumors to Minnesota
I had to get this stupid picture in here.
Remember when this guy was the MVP. I kind of still do. It’s got to be one of the biggest rise in fall in all of sports maybe besides I’m going to say Vince Young. Derrick Rose in his first couple of years in the NBA I though was going to be the gold standard of point guards going forward. No one could stop this guy. His drive and finish is better than a lot of point guards I’ve ever seen in the NBA. He was unstoppable every time. Derrick was either going to make it or get fouled that was it.
But something popped their head up and I’m going to say ruined this guy. He goes by the name Reggie and it’s Derricks older brother. This guy somehow knows better than doctors. He knows better than everyone what Derrick needs. This guy basically made Derrick impossible to work with and when he left Chicago I gave a Tiger Woods fist pump when I heard the news. No one will ever win with this guy. He just disappears in games now and acts like he is too afraid to try to dunk. That was his whole game. He isn’t a good shooter at all so when he acts like one it’s over. If this guy was taller he would have been one of the best shooting guards in the game but turns out he is a huge disappointment in my eyes.
Now we see him after not even a year maybe getting shipped off to Minnesota. The Knicks have no plans on resigning this guy after this “Dream Team” they assembled really has just stunk up the court all year. I would say I feel bad but that’s what they deserve. That’s what happens when you sign two guys to huge contracts with knee problems.
The I think you can say upside is that the only coach Rose ever played for Tom Thibodeau is at the helm of Minnesota so maybe he can make a player of him yet. There isn’t anything as of yet to nail down what is being offered but Rubio is actually in the Mix. That’s a pair I would get excited for, Rubio and Porzingis. Two failing franchises giving up players they know they can’t win with. I’d have to say that I’m not upset because I love seeing the Knicks go down in flames.
