Derrick Rose

Derrick Rose was a 1st pick for the Chicago Bulls in 2008. In his first season with the Bulls, he won Rookie of the Year. He had played the season with his ankle bothering him but nothing serious. In his second year of being in the NBA, he had been selected for the All-Star team. He also was a key part to the Bulls doing well in the playoffs, but eventually lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Derrick averaged 26.8 points and 7.2 assists in the playoffs. In his third NBA season, Rose started off amazing. In his second game, he put up 39 points. He also scored his first triple-double in his career. He also led his team to achieve first seed and a record of 62 wins and 20 losses. He also became the NBA's third player to achieve more than 2,000 points and 600 assists in a single season. After doing all of this and being a crucial part of the Bulls season, he won MVP and became the youngest to do so. The season after was the "Decline of Rose". In his first game of the playoffs, he jumped and landed badly, causing him to hop out the court. An MRI later showed us that he had a torn ACL and had a estimated recovery time of 8-12 months, which caused him to miss the rest of the playoffs and the next season. Just as we thought he would come back and be amazing, he ended up tearing his meniscus and the Bulls announced he would miss the season. After these injuries, Rose became average. His injuries really messed him up and it will take him years to achieve the skill his former MVP self had.
