Derrick Rose: ''the closest to death I've got to right there'' - Aug 16, 2012

Derrick Rose
Derrick Rose (6'3''-G-88, college: Memphis) says finding out he had a torn ACL was like death. The Chicago Bulls' superstar told CSNChicago.com he spent ''the whole time praying'' during the MRI that he wasn't seriously injured even though he heard a pop as he crashed to the court in the playoff opener against the Philadelphia 76ers.

''I remember everything,'' Rose said, ''I remember jumping in the air and coming back down, and just that popping sound, I felt it actually tear when I laid all the way out and it just let go.''

When team physician Dr. Brian Cole confirmed the tear, Rose said, ''I couldn't believe it. That's the closest thing to death, the closest to death I've got to right there, where it just seemed like the wind and everything was taken out (of me).''

Other than a brief YouTube video last month, he had said little publicly since the injury. The interview with CSNChicago.com was conducted last month in Los Angeles, where he was working out at the time, and posted Wednesday.

Chicago was wrapping up a 103-91 victory when Rose's left leg buckled as he came to a jump start in the lane. He still went up again and passed to Carlos Boozer before crashing to the court, sending a chill through the arena.

Rose's injury dashed the Bulls' championship hopes after they captured home-court advantage throughout the playoffs, and with Joakim Noah spraining his left ankle later in the series, Chicago bowed out in the first round.

The torn ACL also put the Bulls in a sort of holding pattern as they wait for their superstar point guard to return to form. Rose is expected to miss most of the season and might not rediscover his old explosive form until the following year, assuming he regains it.

''It's been hard, definitely been hard. But I've been all right,'' Rose told CSNChicago.com. ''The injury could have been way worse. You've got some people that probably feel worse than I am, but I know I'm going to be all right. I believe in God, my spirits are up and I believe in myself, and I know I'm going to be back even stronger.''

Also on Wednesday, Adidas released a one-minute promotional video documenting Rose's recovery and showing him performing various exercises.   




Rudy Gobert
Gobert has double-double to help Jazz beat Thunder 96-87 - 19 hours ago
The Oklahoma City Thunder were the talk of the offseason after adding two more All-Stars to the roster. None of that mattered against a deep Utah Jazz team built to defend. Rudy Gobert (7'1''-C-92) had 16 points and 13 rebounds to lead the Jazz to a 96-87 victory over the Thunder. Utah didn't trail after taking a 13-12 lead in the first quarter. Oklahoma City's All-Star trio of Russell Westbrook (6'3''-PG-88, college: UCLA), Paul George (6'9''-G/F-90, college: Fresno St.) and Carmelo Anth...   [read more]

Marc Gasol
Warriors plagued with frustration in 111-101 loss to Memphis - 19 hours ago
The Warriors entered the 2017-18 season trying to maintain championship habits. Instead, they have become saddled with issues that usually stunt rebuilding teams. The Warriors have struggled to defend without fouling. Their shooting consistency has gone array. Their bench has not established a consistent identity. And as a result, the Warriors suffered a 111-101 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday in what marked the defending champion's second defeat in its first three games. The Wa...   [read more]

LA Clippers guard Milos Teodosic helped off court with left foot injury - 20 hours ago
Milos Teodosic(6'5''-PG-87) sustained a left foot injury late in the second quarter of the LA Clippers' home opener against the Phoenix Suns. Chasing down an offense rebound, Teodosic stepped on Devin Booker's foot and fell to the court. He then slammed his fist into the court in obvious pain before teammates carried him off of the floor. Teodosic could not put any weight on the injured foot, although eventually he was able to hop back to the locker room. The Clippers said X-rays on Teodo...   [read more]
