As an Indianapolis native, writer and fan of all Indianapolis based teams, including the Indiana Pacers, Derrick Rose is frustrating. He seems to have the Pacers number and it is the expectation, not the norm, to have the Pacers beat the Bulls when Derrick Rose is playing. Derrick Rose is a difference maker and he can beat any team on any given night. Derrick rose is a difference maker, when he is on the court. Staying on the court seems to be the problem for him, the Bulls and the NBA. Derrick Rose appears to be made of glass and what will ultimately separate him from the greats is inability to stay healthy and on the court.
No matter how frustrating Rose may be I think I speak on behalf of Indianapolis and the rest of the NBA when I say good luck Derrick Rose and get better soon. If you don’t already know Rose left the Bulls game against Portland with an apparent noncontact injury. It was announced over the weekend that Rose is out for an unknown period of time with a right knee injury. I have nothing against Derrick Rose. I think he is an unbelievably talented basketball player and an even harder worker. Who can’t respect a guy who works month upon months to come back from a left knee injury and has a better vertical then when he got hurt? I feel bad for the player, Derrick Rose, just as I feel bad for other players who are prone to injuries. Injuries are something that can’t be prevented, unless you are completely reckless, and Derrick Rose unfortunately seems be a player who can’t avoid injuries.
Good Luck to Derrick Rose on his road to recovery. Chicago – the Pacers will see you in March and expect nothing but the best coming from the Pacers. This is a great time to be a Pacer fan and if the Pacers can start beating teams in the first half as they do in the second half the Heat and NBA better watch out.
