New York Knicks Investing On Derrick Rose; Bulls Regret Letting Him Go?
Derrick Rose has started his NBA career in 2008 after he was drafted by the Chicago Bulls as the first overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft Pick. Since then he has stayed with the Bulls putting all his effort and loyalty to the first team that saw his potential.
Just like any other NBA players, there are ups and downs and it is not always bright and sunny in one's NBA career. Rose had several injuries throughout his career with the Bulls and challenged the team's performance.
Rose first injury was in the 2009-10 season where he had an ankle injury that caused him to miss the season. Fast forward to the present with his latest injury where he had a left orbital bone fracture during the preseason of 2015-16.
Even if his performance with the Bulls earned him a season-high record, in June 2016 he was still traded off together with Justin Holiday to the New York Knicks. He played wearing the Knicks uniform in the team's season opener game against the Cleveland Cavaliers where fans saw that the star player is back in his good shape.
According to the Inquisitr, Derrick Rose seems to be a fit with the Knicks for the long haul. The Knicks are reportedly considering offering Rose a contract extension. He could be the long-term answer at lead guard for the New York Knicks when after everything settles in.
Many believed that Knicks acquiring Rose was a risk they had to make. As CBS Sports reported, Rose is an opportunity -- a gamble worth taking for a franchise that is trying not to squander the remainder of Carmelo Anthony's prime -- with zero long-term risks.
Rose transfer to the Knicks is beneficial to both parties. This is a fresh start for Rose having been clouded with his past of many injuries and this is the Knicks chance to get the point guard they needed for the team.
