Derrick Rose was at the pinnacle of his career six years ago. He won his first MVP award and he turned his team, the Chicago Bulls, into one of the best teams in the entire NBA. The future was bright for the Bulls point guard, and beside posting impressive stats, he was extremely fun to watch. Rose's athleticism made him one of the top players in the league and many thought that he could become one of the greatest guards [VIDEO] in the league's history.

However, everything changed in 2012 when Derrick Rose suffered an ACL injury.

This injury forced him to sit out the entire 2012/13 season and he appeared in only 10 games in the 2013/14 season. Two years later, the Bulls traded him to the New York Knicks, and he was signed by the Cleveland Cavaliers a few months ago.

Even though many fans believed that Rose would bounce back with Cleveland, it appears that his injuries have taken a toll on him and he is considering his future in the NBA.

Rose is contemplating his future

Derrick Rose has appeared in only 7 games this season for the Cavaliers, missing 11 games due to injury issues. While the Cavaliers knew he would be prone to injuries, they definitely didn't expect him to go down so early. However, they hoped he would be ready for the playoffs, but the point guard might be done with basketball.

Rose is currently away from the Cavaliers and he is considering his future playing basketball. "He's tired of being hurt and it's taking a toll on him mentally," said a source with the Cavaliers, as reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

The point guard is dealing with an ankle injury at the moment, and it seems this injury was the last straw.

Unfortunately, the former MVP is having a lot of problems, so it's not surprising that he is thinking about his future. It is important to note that Derrick Rose turned 29 less than two months ago, yet it appears there is nothing he can do to make things better.

Rose could retire

Rose, who is averaging 14.3 points and 2.6 rebounds this season with the Cavaliers, could retire soon. Considering he is only 29, this would be a sad and an unfortunate ending of his career, but it may easily come to that.

There aren't many details regarding his situation, but everyone is hoping that Rose will return and stay with the team. Even though he has a good chance of winning a championship with the Cleveland Cavaliers, it is obvious that he is frustrated with all the injuries [VIDEO] he is going through, so it will be interesting to see what he decides to do.
