I know he was the MVP 2 years ago. Yes, he is an All Star and will be for years to come. I’m not even talking after his knee injury in this article. I’m talking before his injury would I take him on my team. No, I don’t want Derrick Rose on my team.
“WHAT! Your crazy” most people would say, but I’ll tell you why I don’t want him. He shoots entirely too much. He makes these crazy moves to the basket and that’s what killed his knee last season. Yes, he’s a good player, not debating that. But I don’t want my Point Guard taking that many shots.
I want a prototypical Point Guard. A guy to get other players involved. Lead the offense is what his main job is. Rondo, Chris Paul, Steve Nash are the type of guy I’m talking about. Steve Nash was a 2 time MVP, he didn’t take all the shots. He got everyone involved.
Rose has to play good for that team to win. If Rose sucks that night then they lose. I don’t want a Shoot First guard. I want a Pass First Guard. You got to distribute the ball to win. He can easily be a 11 assist a night guard. They got guys who are open.
When the ball is in Rose’s hand, you know he’s going to shoot. He’s starting to be like Russell Westbrook, except Westbrook is a better scorer. Rose chucks up a lot of shots. A lot are misses. He sometimes shoots himself out of a game, especially when he does that crazy jump step pull-up move.
Rose is going to be a Star for his whole career I’m predicting. But not a champion. Nobody, not even Michael Jordan, won a championship all by themselves.
