Rise and fall of Derrick Rose
It was very difficult for Rose to hold back his happiness that was rolling down his eyes in the form of tears. He became a MVP in 2011 when he scored 44 points with the Bulls but the following years weren’t good for his sports career.
His stint with the Chicago Bulls finished on a poor note; New York Knicks was a disappointment and joining the star studded team of Cleveland Cavaliers ended in trading. Finally he signed Minnesota Timberwolves to prover that a superhero is always a superhero.
