Before his tumultuous career with the Chicago Bulls, Derrick Rose was a top high-school recruit at Simeon Career Academy. In those days, he wore No. 25 in honor of Ben Wilson, a Simeon high-school prospect who was killed in a shooting in 1984.
Now that Rose has been traded to the Knicks, he’s going back to his roots. The team tweeted a picture of Rose in a No. 25 jersey, as well as the jersey hanging in his new locker at Madison Square Garden.
