HoopsHype Derrick Rose rumors

November 13, 2014 Updates

In a taped interview with TNT's Rachel Nichols, Rose expanded on how the knee injuries brought his athletic mortality into focus. "I probably just think different," Rose said. "I think further on into my career, further on into my life, and I'm just trying to plan things out. I was just being myself and that's all I could be, so I could care less (about a backlash). It doesn't affect me at all. It affects people around me more than me. "Every time I step on the court, I give it my all. But I'm just learning my body, learning from my mistakes, and people got mad about that." Chicago Tribune

But it’s really as simple as this: Rose is making the decision with the consultation of the training and medical staffs. And, really, that’s how all injury situations are handled. Management isn’t sitting on high making some grand pronouncement about saving Rose for the long haul. (Though management is trying to set a big picture mentality with soft minutes restrictions for certain players.) Thibodeau isn’t involved in the process. Rose is warming up, seeing if he can go and then making the call with training and medical personnel he trusts. I do think there’s a benefit to him playing if he is able, given how much time he has missed. Playing if he doesn’t feel comfortable doing so doesn’t make sense this early in the season, or, really, at any time other than the playoffs. Chicago Tribune
