Just Derrick Rose doing more things that only he can. After the Chicago Bulls superstar showed off his transition scoring prowess early against the Detroit Pistons, he later exhibited court sense befitting a true point guard. In an act of athletic wizardry that we’re having trouble wrapping our minds around, Rose hung in the air, faked a pass, then found Joakim Noah for an easy layup under the basket.
Our wrists would shatter from the sheer whiplash of such an aggressive ball fake. But the mental aspect here is just as impressive – it seems like Rose was planning this along. Nuts.
Stay healthy, Derrick. The league is so much more fun when you’re playing in it.
