Derrick Rose, in his own words:
From looking at me, you will never know what I went through. Because I don’t want you to know. As bad as it was, I got through it and that’s why I am the person I am today.
Championships is how you get noticed in this league. That’s only how you can talk. I can’t talk. I can’t brag about anything. I won an MVP award. So? That was two years ago. I ain’t won no championship. Can’t say nothing until you win a championship.
Being from Chicago, and bringing a ring back… Man. There’s only one thing on my list, and that’s to win a championship.
Mad, mad, mad respect.
