Chicago Bull’s guard Derrick Rose tore his ACL in the last-minute of the game against the 76ers on Saturday. The Bulls won that game 103-91 but lost Rose. As of today MVP Rose will be out for the rest of the season. Bulls Coach Tom Thibodeau(just try pronouncing it) is getting shit for playing Rose when the Bulls were leading by 12 with 1:20 left in the game. Rose was plagued by other injuries this season so playing without him is not a new thing for the Bulls. Without Rose the Bulls were 18-9. That means they still have a chance in the playoffs.
The poor Olympic team is definitely struggling losing Rose. Adidas was sponsoring Rose and man are they bummed about not having him in the Olympics. The only person that is celebrating is Nike senior designer, Jason Petrie, who apparently tweeted the injury wouldn’t have happened if he were wearing Nike shoes. Of course Nike has apologized for the designer’s comments. It is kind of funny that Adidas’ other athletes were Magic’s Dwight Howard and Clipper’s Chauncey Billups who are also out due to injury. Poor Adidas is already the small fish in the shoe pond next to Nike. Now Nike will dominate even more being the only shoe presence at the Olympics.
