Although a standout ballplayer, Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose can’t tongue LeBron James’ jockstrap

Unlike Derrick Rose, LeBron James is already one of the greatest basketball players ever.

Ready for a normal workload when the preseason commences on October 4, Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose believes he is the best player in the NBA.

The 24-year-old Rose suffered a torn ACL in his left knee during Game 1 of the 2012 Eastern Conference quarterfinals against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Despite being medically cleared on March 8 and participating in full contact practices for almost two months, the youngest man to ever earn the MVP award never performed in 2013.

“His overall strength is terrific,” said Tom Thibodeau, 55, who agreed to direct Chicago in June 2010 and was named the Coach of the Year in 2011. “He’s put a lot of work into his body. I know he’s anxious to get out there and play. He’s played some pickup but not a lot, but he feels great, and that’s the most important thing.”

Averaging 21.0 points, 6.8 assists and 3.8 rebounds over 279 games since being drafted first overall out of Memphis in 2008, Rose is certainly one of the association’s premier talents.

Plus, considering the native South-Sider has been accused of timidity, it’s encouraging that Rose’s confidence is soaring.

Nevertheless, leading the Miami Heat to consecutive crowns last month, Rose can’t tongue LeBron James’ jockstrap.

Wisely waiting to fully mend, Rose will again bloom on the hardwood this winter.

However, “the most important thing” is to be realistic and Derrick Rose has much to accomplish before being mentioned alongside future Hall of Famer LeBron James.
