The New York Knicks guard has not been the same since his return from his ACL tear in a 2012 playoff game with the Chicago Bulls. Before this season started Rose seemed to be making a comeback. A new team, and new city, but unfortunately stuck with the same pair of knees.
Rose played in 64 of 76 total games for the Knicks this year averaging 18 points and 4.4 assists.
Some are questioning if Rose should retire at the age of 28. A meniscus tear is not an easy injury to come back from, and some say is tougher than an ACL injury. I experienced a slight tear in my medial meniscus as a high school junior and was forced to miss a few months during the season. It will be a tough and long rehabilitation process.
If Rose does continue to play and continue at this rate he might never be the player he once was. This will effect Derrick Roses’ new free agency this summer as well. My heart goes out to the guy, but one thing that leaves you to question: what could have his career been without the injuries? That’s just one question that we will never know the answer to.
