High School Career (Simeon Career Academy)

Derrick Rose had already made news when he entered the high school scene. Before Rose had played his first high school game, college scouts were swooning over him. Ben “Benji” Wilson, a Chicago icon who was assassinated as a result of gang warfare during his final year of high school, inspired Derrick Rose to wear No. 25 during his time in high school. Rose’s first two years at Simeon were spent playing on the freshman and JV teams in spite of his potential. This was because the team’s head coach, Bob Hambric, believed that only experienced players belonged on the varsity squad. Since 1980, Simeon had not had a freshman play varsity basketball.

In his junior year, Derrick Rose made the most of his first varsity season by scoring 25 points in the Chicago Public League Championship game at the United Center. In his senior year, Rose faced off against Brandon Jennings’ Oak Hill Academy in a crucial game. Simeon of Rose earned the victory in the nationally televised game on ESPN thanks to his 28 points, 9 assists, and 8 rebounds. Simeon won back-to-back state championships with Rose’s assistance. Rose concluded his Simeon career with a 120–12 record. In addition to being a McDonald’s All-American, he was selected Mr. Basketball for Illinois. Then, Simeon retired his 25.

College Career

Memphis Tigers

Rose played for the University of Memphis Tigers under head coach John Calipari after his noteworthy high school career. Memphis had already retired the number in honor of Penny Hardaway, thus Rose was compelled to switch from No. 25 to No. 23, where it now stands. Rose led Memphis to their first 26 victories of the season while averaging 14.9 points, 4.7 assists, and 4.5 rebounds per game in his rookie campaign. Rose led his Tigers to the national championship with a 25-point performance against UCLA in the NCAA Tournament Final Four. Despite Rose scoring 17 points, the Tigers were defeated by the Kansas Jayhawks. At the very end of the game, Derrick did miss a critical free throw that would have guaranteed the Tigers’ victory.

Rose made the decision to depart Memphis and declare for the 2008 NBA Draft after the loss.

NBA Career

With the first overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft, the Chicago Bulls selected the Chicago teenager. Rose immediately had an impact, becoming the first Chicago Bulls player since Michael Jordan to register at least 10 points in each of his team’s first 10 games. On the strength of his 16.8 points, 6.3 assists, and 3.9 rebounds per game, Rose went on to earn Rookie of the Year. Derrick tied Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s record for the most points scored in a playoff debut with 36 against the Boston Celtics.

Rose was selected as a reserve for the 2009 NBA All-Star Game during his second season. Since Michael Jordan, he was the first Chicago Bull to be selected as an All-Star. Rose led the Bulls back to the playoffs once more, leading them to a first-round loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers while averaging 26.8 points and 7.2 assists. Rose had a strong start to the following season, outscoring the Detroit Pistons by 39 points in the second game. With a 62-20 record at the conclusion of the 2010–11 season, the Bulls led the league. The NBA MVP was announced as Derrick Rose. He was voted the league’s youngest MVP. Rose’s MVP season helped the Bulls get to the Eastern Conference Finals, but they were defeated by the Miami Heat behind LeBron James, Chris Bosh, and Dwayne Wade.

Rose signed a five-year deal with the Bulls in 2011–12. He led them to the playoffs once more. Rose unfortunately tore his ACL during the first round of the playoffs against the Philadelphia 76ers. Rose missed the whole 2012–13 season as well as the remainder of the postseason. Rose had a significant comeback in 2013–2014. Rose, however, tore his meniscus on November 22 while playing against the Portland Trail Blazers. For the balance of the season, he was once more sidelined. Rose made a comeback in 2014–15, but was soon forced to have another knee operation because of issues with his meniscus. Rose assisted the Bulls in returning to the postseason, but they were once again defeated by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Before being dealt to the New York Knicks in 2016 for Jose Calderon, Jerian Grant, and Robin Lopez, Rose played one more season for the Bulls. In his first game for the New York Knicks, he scored 17 points. Rose was penalized for taking a leave of absence as a Knick without informing his team.

Rose signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers the year after, in 2017. He made his Cleveland debut with 14 points. This time, Rose missed two months due to a variety of ankle problems. He was subsequently traded to the Utah Jazz, who waived him two days later.

On March 8, 2018, head coach Tom Thibodeau re-signed his point guard with the Minnesota Timberwolves, bringing him back into the fold. He met up with Taj Gibson and Jimmy Butler, former colleagues of the Chicago Bulls. After joining the Timberwolves, Rose went on to record a career-high 50 points against the Utah Jazz on a very emotional night. Rose broke down in tears following the performance, expressing how much it meant to him to be able to earn 50 points despite all of the challenges he had to face in his professional life. Rose also hit the 10,000-point mark while he was a Timberwolves player.

Rose committed to the Detroit Pistons in 2019. He became the only player in Pistons history to record at least 20 points in seven straight games while serving as a reserve. Rose did miss some time with a hamstring issue, but he came back against the Phoenix Suns and exploded for 31 points.
