Derrick Rose Breaks Down at Shoe Launch Event

I will admit I was going to tear into Derrick Rose when I heard about the crying in the video. As a Miami Heat fan, he’s the enemy to me. He, and the Bulls are a team that have stood in the way of the Heat and their Championship dreams.

Yes last year the Heat beat them in a best of 7 ECF. Yes this year the Bulls got eliminated in the 1st round because of Rose’s injury. But make no mistake about it, he’s a top 10 if not top 5 player in this league and they would have gone further had it not been for the injury.

So before I decided to rip him, I watched the video and felt his pain. He’s always been a humble star and I like that about him. Do I wish he would loosen up during All Star Weekend, sure. But one thing that I cannot deny him is his passion for his team, city and fans.

Hurry back DRose.
