Derrick Rose's statement regarding gang-signs
Derrick Rose has now apologised for a photo circling the internet on which he is apparently flashing gang signs:
Recently, a photo has been circulating on the Internet which appears to depict me flashing a gang sign. This photo of me was taken at a party I attended in Memphis while I was in school there, and was meant as a joke ... a bad one, I now admit. I want to emphatically state, now and forever, that Derrick Rose is anti-gang, anti-drug, and anti-violence. I am not, nor have I ever been, affiliated with any gang and I can't speak loudly enough against gang violence, and the things that gangs represent.
In posing for this picture, I am guilty of being young, naive and of using extremely poor judgment. I sincerely apologize to all my fans for my mistake. I pride myself on being a good citizen, and role model, that young people can look up to and I want to urge all my young fans to stay away from gangs and gang-related activities.
The photo has not been the only issue surrounding the NBA's Rookie of the year. His former College Memphis has issued a statement that an unidentified individual sat a SAT test for one of their basketball players. A lot of rumours are currently floating around claiming that Rose was that player.
lemme see this f*ggot in the streets...he getting bodied...has no clue what he fu*king with...
Like Pierce did, throwing up gang signs in the finals after getting stabbed up in the club. He aint no gangster. STFU.
Celts fans will hate on anything they can if sh*t isn't going their way. I can only imagine what happens when Garnett, Allen and Pierce retire and the Celts go back into mediocrity for a decade or so.
They might commit suicide.
