Derrick Rose – Drafted number one pick by the Bulls in 2008. Named NBA Rookie of the year. Became the youngest MVP winner in 2011. His future couldn’t be any brighter, but it all started to fall with injury after injury. The Bulls finally gave up and traded him to the Knicks in 2016 but now he’s the mystery man?
On Monday night, Rose was an absolute no-show to the game against the Pelicans. He didn’t call the coach, the team or owner, and simply left for family reasons. He was fined by the Knicks the day after when he re-surfaced and was a starter the next game.
These moves from Rose and the Knicks blew up the internet and publications and fans were not impressed. As for Rose, the trade deadline is approaching and faith in him is slipping away again. Could this be the final chapter of this demented story?
Catch you Monday.
