Derrick RoseDerrick Martell Rose (born October 4, 1988) is a professional basketball player who is currently playing point guard for the Minnesota Timberwolves of the NBA. Born in Chicago, Rose learned the game of basketball from his three older brothers. In high school, he won two state championships and was rated by scouts as the top point guard prospect in the country. He went on to play for the University of Memphis Tigers and reached the NCAA national championship game in 2008. Shortly after, Rose declared for the 2008 NBA Draft and was selected first overall by his hometown Chicago Bulls.
In his first year of professional basketball, Rose was voted the Rookie of the Year and was selected to the All-Rookie Team. In only his second season, Rose was selected to the 2010 NBA All-Star Team. He was also named a starter for the U.S. Team at the 2010 FIBA World Championships.
During game one of the 2011–12 playoffs, Rose tore his ACL. He had surgery and returned to full contact practice in January 2013, but he did not appear in a game during the 2012–13 NBA season.
Rose returned to play in 2013–14. However, on November 22, 2013, during a regular season game against the Portland Trail Blazers, Rose injured his right meniscus which caused him to miss the remainder of the season. Rose returned once again the following season, but knee injuries continued to riddle him, causing him to miss 30 games. In June 2016, he was traded to the New York Knicks. After one season with the Knicks, Rose joined the Cleveland Cavaliers in July 2017, but was traded and subsequently released by the Utah Jazz the following February. In March 2018, he signed with the Timberwolves.¹
