Derrick Rose Says He Won’t Change His Style Of Play

After suffering another season ending injury, Derrick Rose has made it clear that he will be back and no matter what, and he will continue to play the way he does. Many feel that Rose has been getting injured because of his wild style of play,  Rose disagrees and says it is just who he is. He also didn’t rule out a playoff return.

As per the Chicago Tribune: 

“I could get hurt 10 more times — I’m never going to stop,” Rose said when asked if his knee injuries might affect the way he plays. Rose acknowledged that his style of play could have made him vulnerable to injury. “I play a unique way of playing basketball,” Rose said. “I can’t change that.” Asked about people who say the Bulls should consider moving on without him, Rose said, “You can be a fool if you want. I know I’m going to be all right. … I believe that I’m a special player.”

Rose responded to a question about the possibility of returning for the playoffs, even though he was told two weeks ago that there is virtually no chance of that. “If I’m healthy and the situation is right, I’m going to be back playing,” he said. “If I’m healthy and my meniscus is fully healed, of course I’ll be out there playing, but if it’s something totally different and the outcome is not how I would want it to be, it’s no need.”

Good to see that Rose’s confidence has not been shook because of this injury.
