So when did it become cool to s**t on someone because they're not considered to be smart? I mean lets be real, if he was capable and just didn't give a s**t, then party on. But in this case it was obvious to see that Rose wasn't the brightest the first time we heard him talk. This dude isn't capable.

I do not condone what took place. I even feel for the teams that feel slighted because they lost to him....only just a little, because we all know that teams like UCLA pay players too just like the majority of major college programs. But lets not s**t on Rose for a flaw in the system. Why are we so loyal to the NCAAs again?

Yes, rules are rules but I have to applaud someone like Rose because regardless of what limits our society has in place for people who are different, he made it anyway and is proving the system wrong. Cheat or no cheat, this kid is amazing when he steps on the court.

So I just ask that you bashers step out the box for a minute and really look at the situation.

Great kid, superior athlete, no brains....Someone sees his potential, grooms him, gets him by, kid is a superstar. Kid inspires thousands.

Great kid, superior athlete, no brains....SAT says no because they don't think he can learn in college. He misses his opportunity. He becomes frustrated. Gives up on his dreams. Kid ends up another legend on the streets of Chicago.


Derrick Rose is mentally slow and that's okay. He isn't smart enough to orchestrate that whole high school/college/league situation. So why are you mad at him?

Yall talking all this s**t and really dont know what happened. This could be bulls**t for all yall know. Or maybe he just didn't apply himself in school. Just like a lot of star athletes that know they will be millionaires in the near future. Bottom line is he is a great Bball player. And if he wasn't yall wouln't give a s**t about anything about this dude. If this s**t is true, the people to blame are his high school, Memphis, and everyone that let him slide by. But as of now he rich and needs to just focus on bringing the Bulls ring #7:cool-smiley-009:

the fact of the matter of it is the NBA really doesn't care about these kids and the NCAA doesn't care about them either.

some of you hating but put yourself in his shoes, when you are that young and your dream all your life is to play in the NBA you will do whatever it takes to get there. and when you have higher authorities willing to help you cheat then your not going to think twice about it. Its a life changing decision, who knows if he woulda ended up in the NBA had he not cheated. i dont blame him one bit.


its called hitting the books

cheating should never be an option

Don't expect boxden n*ggas to know about that though, most people here would of dropped out of HS without cheating

Leave it to the geniuses here on Boxden to speak on the importance of an education and bash a guy for being able to beat the system, make millions and be famous while doing it. Rose didn't need the grade changed to graduate from high school. They changed the grade to allow his GPA to be high enough for entrance into whatever college he chose to go to. An SAT score isn't mandatory to get in Memphis. The SAT s**t was with another school and when he f**ked them and didn't come they decided to snitch last season to get back at Calipari. Let's not forget this s**t being going on since December of 08. That's why Cal dipped he didn't want any of that s**t to hamstring him at Memphis.

Having said that, Do I agree with what Rose and just about every top athlete coming out of high school has done and will continue to do forever? No
Do I think they could change the system so that AAU, High School, and college coaches can't rig it to allow someone else to take the SAT or ACT for a player? Yes
Do I think they need to keep agents, crooked family members, shoe companies, and others away from these kids? Yes Will it happen? No
This kind of s**t has been going on for decades and will continue to go on. Just because most of you guys don't know about it, doesn't mean it ain't happening.

How is it bulls**t when its being reported already and its true. I know you like Rose, but its time for to take his d**k out of your mouth man.

Why should we let Rose slide? He knew it was wrong. He knew what he was getting himself into by doing this.

To say we should blame everyone else except for Rose is not right.

:applause: People that are disagreeing with what D. Rose did are probably the ones that had to work hard to get to where they are or want to be at. Sucks, but hey, thats the choice you make. Why knock on rose for the choice he made. He chose the easy way. s**t honestly, I'm a little jealous I didn't think of that in high school or else I would be playing baseball rightnow in the majors. Good for derrick rose

He does seem pretty dumb when he's interviewed, but I always thought it was just because he was nervous in front of cameras. I guess it makes sense now

Let's see.... OJ Mayo makes a damn 30 something on his ACT and Rose has someone sit down for to take his test.

OJ Mayo has over a 3.0 GPA an honor roll student at USC, there is no telling what Rose had.

I don't want to hear them excuses about him not wanting to be in school. He just has no drive and never put the time into books like he did bball.

I have no problem with Derrick, but to say he did a good job beating the system and all this is wrong. There are plenty of guys in all professions of sports that have good careers and were also good students to.
