people can say all they want with the whole "two different people, and everyone heals differently thing", its bs. its funny how every step of the way rose was taking the doctors advice, then gets cleared to play, and all of a sudden the doctors wrong. as has been said a million times before, no one expected him to come back playing 40 minutes and playing like he was his mvp year. if he wouldve came back when he was cleared to play, hed be back to playing fairly close to it by now. its funny that people act like fans dont have a say in the matter, when the only reason he makes the money he does is cause fans pay to see him play, fans buy his merchandise, and he has endorsement deals cause companies believe thats who fans want to see. people in chicago have a right to be annoyed, adrian peterson isnt just a "different person". he wanted it more than rose did. most competitive athletes get injuries and use it as motivation, rose didnt. hes actually saying its lack of muscle memory, hes not even saying it physically still hurts. its all mental. and it has been all mental for months now.
with that said theres no way he should come back for the heat series, its a lose lose for him. i like derrick rose too, but as a fan i lost a little respect for him through this whole thing. at the very least keep your fans up to date with the whole thing, dont just say youll come back when god says you should come back.
