JASON JORDAN’S WHAT I’M THINKING TODAY …
The more I think about Derrick Rose not returning to the Chicago Bulls after being cleared medically the more I say good for him.
People are actually hating on a man who’s coming off of a torn ACL for not coming back before he’s ready?
Sure, Kobe Bryant limped out on the floor for the Los Angeles Lakers to shoot free throws after tearing his Achilles and, yeah, David Lee suited up for the Golden State Warriors with a torn hip flexor. Heck, even I tore a ligament in my ankle one day at practice then came out the next day and led my team to a tournament title on one leg back in my heyday (Shameless plug!).
But we’re, yes “we’re” don’t hate, the exception not the rule.
Simeon (Chicago) forward Jabari Parker stayed out until his broken foot was fully healed and he felt comfortable playing on it. Same for Prestonwood Christian (Plano, Texas) forward Julius Randle.
What I will say is Rose should just go ahead and say he’s not coming back. And, for the love of God, someone tell him to stop warming up on the court before games; cutting to the basket, running around and draining jumpers.
Talk about a tease!
Bottom line is that Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III showed us what could happen to a player who does the whole “guts and glory” bit when he shouldn’t.
It’s just not worth it, and next season when Rose is averaging 25 points a game no one will remember that he sat out.
As you were…
