Some progression is being made in the Derrick Rose saga, as he is reportedly now in talks with the Cleveland Cavaliers front office regarding his Future. Rose has unfortunately been coping with injuries once again and missing 12 of the Cavaliers 19 games this season. The former MVP is considering retirement because of the un-nerving injury struggles he has been having to deal with.

Injury prone

Derrick Rose is at this time not with the Cavaliers as he is dealing with an unrelenting ankle injury with no guaranteed timeline of when he is going to return to the team officially.

Rose, who is now 29 years old, is averaging a career low in points, assists and minutes with 14.3 points, 1.7 assists, and 26.9 minutes. It is evident that injuries have taken a toll on his career and have gotten in the way of his success as a player. He has gone from the league MVP to a one year $2.1 million backup, and now wanting to retire. It is unfortunate as he is still young and talented, but injuries have a way of sneaking up on you, they can without a doubt interfere with long-laid plans.

Great career and great player

Regardless, he has made quite a career for himself, where he showcased dexterity and immense talent while he was on the Chicago Bulls. No one will forget what a great player he has been over the years.

Rose made it out of one the most hopeless pockets of violence in this country, with his family intact, a beautiful son, fantastic memories, an MVP season, and over 100 million dollars in his pocket. He has a lot to be thankful for and a lot of good memories to look back on.

Essentially, many people from Chicago will be devastated the day Derrick Rose retires.

Rose is without a doubt an inspiration to many. A player who has fallen so many times, but continued to get back up each and every time. This is one of the biggest reminders that tough times don’t last, but the toughest people do. Rose has many supporters who will back up any decision he makes about his future. Derrick has torn his left ACL and his right meniscus twice and kept playing basketball afterward.

This shows tenacity, resiliency, strength, and passion as an athlete.

Many are probably unaware that Rose has dealt with depression that was hidden and overlooked by those close to him. Overall, the man deserves a break, because when it comes to your health, it overrides everything. The problem is, if Rose does decide to retire early, he could lose out on the remainder of his $70 million-dollar contract with Adidas.
