◼️ “ I am good, man,” Derrick Rose said after he reached down to knock on the hardwood floor for good luck after a Minnesota Timberwolves practice.
Derrick Rose practically knocked us all down with his performance in the last playoffs. Because more than a performance, it was an exhibition. From its elimination in the first round 4-1 against Houston, without a doubt, the performance of the base was the best news in the side of the T-Wolves. Several flashes of that too big, too strong, too fast too good MVP we saw once.
Without injuries and turning 30, D-Rose has recovered part of his explosiveness. The Rockets thing was not a flower of a day. So far in the preseason, we are seeing aggressive, fine, charged with energy and, most importantly, a player of his characteristics … full of confidence.

D-Rose now finds himself unexpectedly starting for the Minnesota Timberwolves, and plans to make the most of his opportunity.
