Pullin’ for D-Rose


Eye On Sports is hoping for a healthy 
return for Chicago Bulls point guard 
Derrick Rose. 

Love him or loathe him (I don’t know anyone who does) but if you like pro basketball and the NBA, then you’ve got to be pulling for Chicago Bulls’ electrifying point guard Derrick Rose, the league’s reigning MVP, (okay, until further notice).

Rose went down late in Chicago’s Game 1 win over Philadelphia in their first round Eastern Conference playoff matchup on Saturday with a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and will likely take up to a year to even get close to being the player he was before the now, commonplace ACL injury.

The ‘old-school’ Rose, plays the game ‘the right way’ at both ends of the floor, is a genuine and consummate role model off the floor and one of the most composed young stars of today’s generation – in any sport.

On the court, Rose has been an absolute maestro with the basketball, but one unlike the league has ever seen. With his unparalleled ability to dash, dart – and hop – his way through the teeth of an enemy defense to either score the rock himself or dish a ‘fancy feast’ to one of his thankful teammates, Rose has undoubtedly certified himself as a genuine superstar that is anything but the typical me-first player that rules today’s times.

In short, if you like NBA basketball, then you’ve got to be pulling for Chicago’s Derrick Rose. I know I am.
