We’ve all been waiting for this moment. D Rose is back, and in the Rose 9, he went for 50.
Donning the vintage Minnesota Timberwolves jersey from the Kevin Garnett era and a blacked-out version of the adidas D Rose 9, Derrick Rose got all the shine because starters Jeff Teague, point guard, sat out with a knee bruise as did Jimmy Butler. And Rose didn’t disappoint.
Rose reached deep into his bag tonight, terrorizing the paint with his patented killer crossover. Maybe it was the kicks that brought back the magic, but D Rose took us down memory lane and served a masterpiece by dropping 50 points in an emotional and gritty win over the Utah Jazz.
From being the youngest MVP in league history to suffering major knee injuries in both knees, Rose experienced one of the biggest fall from grace in sports history. However, tonight we all witnessed the Derrick Rose of old, even if it’s only for one game.
