I'd imagine the attitude on here would be different if it were CP3 sitting out a whole year when he was with the hornets after he had been medically cleared and the team was headed to the playoffs
What are you talking about? Derrick Rose plays harder than any player in the league. I wouldn't question his heart or his own personal evaluation of his body. Dude takes a lot of abuse from the style of ball he plays. I would rather have him back next season than risk it.
quote:everyone just assumes hes going to suit up and BOOM! 2011 MVP rose is there. it will take weeks to get into the swing of things. i cant imagine hes in great shape. hes not confident he can jump off that leg and dunk.
Long term health? He has been cleared to return to games. This has nothing to do with his health, it is more of a psychological thing with Rosé
quote:give him the off season, put more time between the injury and full speed NBA action-- on that note, starting next year with training camp, preseason, november b-ball-- should be the perfect process of getting him back in swing of things. not throw him in the middle of playoff basketball hoping and praying he can bail out the season
he isn't going to magically get over it until he steps back on the court.
quote:so the guy playing through the pain of a back surgery plus shoulder injuries as well is more of a pussy than the guy who is cleared to play but by some accounts isn't ready due to not being mentally ready?
Howard, Gordon is being sat by the organization, Rose tore his ACL an is still not comfortable.
So people want to risk the long term health of a 24 y/o MVP to appease some season ticket holders?? How short sighted is that? What if he reaggravates his knee and has to sit out part of next year? All for the viewing pleasure of a couple Chicagoans? Do bulls fans not remember life after MJ and before rose?? You've got a stud, don't risk ruining him for short term goals
He should sit the year, it's over for Chicago.
