I love this.
The most outrageous statement I’ve seen all year.
Before reading this, remember, I’m a Denver fan, so my opinion on these 3 is completely unaffected by who I support.
Firstly, Rose is earning more than LeBron did in the first year of his Heat contract. Basically, his contract is bigger than LeBron’s, and he is NOT as good as LeBron. Or Kobe, for that matter. I’m sorry, that’s just a fact.
Also, people say Rose is “clutch.” Here’s a nice fact for them.
During the 2011 playoffs, Rose averaged 27.1 points per game, but only shot 39% from the field and 24% for three pointers.
THAT’S NOT CLUTCH AT ALL. CLUTCH IS COMING UP BIG WHEN IT MATTERS MOST AND THE PLAYOFFS ARE ALL THAT MATTER. CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR REGULAR SEASON MVP FOR BEING SO BIG ON THE BIG STAGE.
But, obviously we overlook the fact that he was garbage because he’s “doing it for the city.” The same city that he’s currently STEALING like $16M from. Imagine if you could get paid $16M without actually creating a single product. I mean, Luke Walton has been more productive than Rose this season.
And, LeBron does it for the money? After Rose signed the second biggest sneaker deal in history ($280M from Adidas as they try desperately to be trendy and hip and continuously come up short because they didn’t sign LeBron, KD or Kobe). Obviously he’s earning that money “for the city,” and not to fulfill whatever wants he has in life.
Kobe does it for the fame? I remember when he stubbornly demanded a trade OUT of LA, aka the biggest market in the NBA. Obviously his want to play for a team where he is wanted and can play the game his way is just another cry for more fame, though, despite already being in one of the most famous cities in the world.
People say LeBron fans are dumb, that Heat fans are dumb, and sure, some of them are, but come on, this is taking it to another level.
Look, I’m a huge Derrick Rose fan, but this is fucking stupid. Yes, Derrick Rose is raw and he works ridiculously hard. He’s one of my favorite athletes. But that doesn’t mean you have to downplay other athletes just to explain how great he is. LeBron works every bit as hard as D. Rose does. And Kobe? He’s probably the hardest working athlete of all-time. Seriously Bulls fans, calm the fuck down.
Derrick Rose offered to pay for Jonylah Watkins’ funeral, a six-month-old baby girl who was shot 5 times to death in the south side of Chicago due to gang violence. May this poor little child rest in peace and god bless Derrick Rose for his kindness.
Yo I seriously fuck with Derrick Rose. Like dude seems like a real good person and he has really gained my respect
Derrick Rose is real. A hometown hero in every sense of the word. This is why he’s one of my favorite athletes. Great person, great work ethic, great player.
*A healthy Derrick Rose would take the #2 spot
**A healthy Rajon Rondo would be one spot above Parker
The Return Of D. Rose - Episode 5 “DRIVE”
Of all the players in the NBA, I respect Derrick Rose the most. Dude goes 110% every single time. Hard work pays off. I hope when he comes back, that he’s every bit the player he was before.
Chi-Town, stand up!
The moment Derrick Rose realized he’s different from the others.
He really doesn’t like having fun.
WILL FERRELL, BASKETBALL ANNOUNCER
The Hornets had Will Ferrell do the player announcements tonight before their game with the Chicago Bulls, and I predict this type of thing is going to start happening at other arenas.
“At guard, #1, his favorite movie’s The Notebook…Derrick Rose.”
Kobe & Rose
Chicago’s very own
