Monday was a huge day for the Cleveland Cavaliers, they agreed to a one year deal worth $2.1 million with former NBA MVP and multiple time all-star, Derrick Rose. Although D-Rose has suffered many injuries throughout his young NBA career, this is a very solid signing by the Cavaliers front office. After spending his first eight seasons in the NBA with his hometown team, the Chicago Bulls, Rose was controversially traded to the New York Knicks before the 2016-17 season begun.

Now he is looking to rejuvenate his career in a wine and gold colored uniform. A team that has spent the last three years performing at the highest level, in the NBA Finals, winning a championship in 2016.

We are yet to see what will happen with signing, and if it will pay off. But considering D-Rose came off his most healthy season since 2011, as long as he can stay healthy and productive, he could be a great addition to the team.

LeBron welcomes D-Rose on Twitter

LeBron James is the king of not only basketball, but the king of sub-tweeting. He can often speak two different messages in one tweet, and today he might've given us another example of that. After the news was spread that former MVP, Derrick Rose has agreed to a one year deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers, King James posted a welcome message to his Twitter.

The abundance of rose emoji's and exclamation marks show that the King is very excited to have the Windy City Assassin in a Cavalier uniform. He might be sending some shade to Kyrie in the process also, considering Rose and himself to be the new dynamic PG-SF duo in Cleveland.

Although Derrick Rose has had a reasonably successful career so far, even through his struggles with injury, he has never achieved what he could've because of one main reason. And that's LeBron James.

During Derrick Rose's prime season in 2010-11 when he led his team to the best record in the Eastern Conference and brought home the NBA MVP award, the superstar point guard led the Bulls to the East Finals.

There was only one thing stopping Rose from reaching the Finals and possibly winning an NBA championship, and that was LeBron and the Heat, as they defeated the Bulls in 5 games. Since this time, Derrick has come up against LeBron in the playoffs two more times (2013 and 2015), and also lost in those series. Not even in 2010 could a Rose-led team overcome a LeBron-led team, when the Cavaliers defeated the Bulls in, you guessed it, 5 games.
