“He probably started this season maybe the fourth, third, fifth best point guard in the league, but right now, he’s definitely in the top one or two best point guards this season.” – LeBron James talking about Derrick Rose after Tuesday’s Game 5.
The NBA playoffs are planting a seed in Derrick Rose that’s going to grow into something the league won’t be able to contain.
Having now been bounced from the postseason in his first two years in the NBA, Rose is going to reach a point when enough is enough.
When that time comes, look out.
“These are things that you just learn from,” said Rose, who averaged 26.2 points and 7.2 assists against the Cavaliers in the playoffs. Cleveland won the Eastern Conference first round series, 4-1. “And if I get put in that situation again, I’ll know what to do.”
