Let’s get one thing straight: Derrick Rose is playing at an MVP level right now and is by far one of the more exciting players in the league. The best part about his game is that we’ve got well over a decade to witness it mature. If Carmelo is smart, this is the team he’s working behind the scenes to take his talents to.
But D-Rose – like Blake, Durant, Kobe, LeBron and others – is a highlight waiting to happen. Case in point this past weekend’s game against the Sacramento Kings. The pick and roll worked to perfection and by the time fellow one-and-doner Memphis Tiger Tyreke Evans realized what was going on he had already been turned around and was struggling to keep his balance. All that was missing was that And 1 guy yelling “OH BABY!”
There’s a silver lining in everything however. Tyreke is still a very talented player and, for what it’s worth, at least he didn’t get Andre Miller’d.
