A Rose Grew Through Concrete

Derrick Rose, where to start with him. He won rookie of the year in 2009 and became the youngest MVP ever in 2011 at just 22 years old.  His career seemed to be set to go down as one of the greats. In 2012, in the playoffs, against the 76ers he jumped and landed on his leg awkward, he had torn his acl. He missed most of the next year. Since then he has had 4 major knee surgeries along with other minor injuries. His career seemed to be in jeopardy. On October 31 of this year he scored a career high 50 points against the jazz and sealed the game with a block. On the 7th of November he scored 31 points with a career high 7 threes.  What he has been able to do with all of his obstacles has been incredible. Lebron James said it best, “… even when a superhero gets knocked down he’s still a superhero and Derrick Rose showed why he’s still a superhero.”
