Okay so we all know Derrick Rose is in the middle of his recovery process, rehabbing his torn ACL. All signs are pointing to a fantastic and healthy rehab. Adidas has been filming Rose’s rehab and the videos have been released as a web series on youtube, it’s inspiring to watch him giving it his all, fighting and pushing himself to his limits. Derrick has been doing everything right, taking his time and attacking every step of the way just as we thought he would.
Luckily there hasn’t been any set backs and in fact as of a few weeks ago Rose has started cutting. Thibs told the Chicago Tribune this week “everything is going as planned” music to every Bulls fans ear! There is still no specific return date yet, Rose and his doctors are still aiming for him to come back sometime after the All-star break.
For everybody wondering why Rose hasn’t been on the Bulls bench or showing up to Bulls games, it’s because he is in Santa Monica for the remainder of his rehab, working with the best trainers and isolating himself from any unnecessary attention. Again Derrick is doing everything right in rehab and the best work comes when nobody is watching, what matters most is the work you put in that nobody talks about. Derrick’s spirits are high and he is always looking at the positives in every situation he’s in. Aside from his recovery, Rose is staying busy with Adidas he has recently released his own apparel line and has released several new shoes, all with different colorways and they all hold a story.
Last month Derrick and long time girlfriend Mieka Reece welcomed their first child to the world. Rose is now a father of a beautiful baby boy. Despite of all the injuries, and scrutiny Rose suffered last season he remains humbled and is keeping his head high. Derrick has a loving family that supports him no matter what and not to mention the millions of fans that adore him and are standing behind him all around the world. Derrick Rose is blessed beyond belief, this torn ACL is a minor set back for a huge come back.
The city of Chicago is buzzing about his comeback more than they did when Michael Jordan announced he was coming out of retirement. This injury could be a huge blessing in disguise Derrick will return better, faster, and stronger than he was before. We’re all pulling for him and cannot wait until we hear “FROM CHICAGOOOO” back in the Bull’s chilling starting line up.
