If you really want to get a Derrick Rose jersey to wear (or give me as a really nice gift), don’t worry, you are not alone.
According to a recent poll of the NBA’s top-selling jerseys, Rose placed #2 in the world and #2 in the United States, yet is #1 in Europe, China, and Latin America. Not only does the NBA agree that he is one of the best players in the league (SEE: 2010-2011 MVP), but clearly most of the world does too.
This doesn’t mean he wants to give you a hug because of it.
In a recent interview, Rose says he’s more ready than ever to get back to playing, and he will fight me, you, or even his mom if that’s what it takes to win.
So yea I guess you can say he’s ready to go.
Photos taken by Ashley. This one above is me almost getting into a fight with the Nets mascot. The Bulls had the ball during the final seconds of the game, and since we were the only Bulls fans in sight he decided to mess with me and try and ruin the end; not cool. Had the Bulls won I probably would’ve gotten beat up from celebrating, but they fell just short. You can read more about it here.
