Despite consistent injuries, Derrick Rose vows to never stop playing basketball
All eyes have been on Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose since his days at Simeon Vocational Career Academy. He made history as the NBA’s youngest most valuable player ever.
But it’s Rose’s injuries that have kept him in the spotlight in recent months.
The latest one happened just a couple of weeks ago, when Rose tore his right meniscus on a simple backcut against Portland on November 22. Despite his setbacks, Rose is vowing to never stop playing.
“I could get hurt 10 more times — I’m never going to stop,” Rose said when asked if his knee injuries might affect the way he plays. Rose acknowledged that his style of play could have made him vulnerable to injury.
“I play a unique way of playing basketball,” Rose said. “I can’t change that.” Asked about people who say the Bulls should consider moving on without him, Rose said, “You can be a fool if you want. I know I’m going to be all right. … I believe that I’m a special player.”
Rose had surgery to repair his torn meniscus on Nov. 25. He will be out for the remainder of the season.
Props the Derrick Rose for not allowing this intense situation to kill his dreams.
