Rose Is Back In The Garden
Pistons point guard, Derrick Rose is dealt back to the New York Knicks.
The 2011 NBA Most Valuable Player is once again on the move. Derrick Rose is being traded back to the Knicks from the Pistons. For Rose, there are many upsides to this deal. One of which is being reunited with Tom Thibodeau, who coached Rose on the Bulls, Timberwolves, and now the Knicks.
Another massive upside is getting to leave the city of Detroit. Honestly, everything else aside, that’s a big time upgrade. I still feel really bad for Jared Goff getting sent from Los Angeles to Detroit, I don’t think that’ll be an easy transition for the young gunslinger.
The last advantage that Rose gets out of this deal is that he goes from the team that was dead last in the East at 5-18 to the Knicks, who sit firmly in the 8th seed. He joins players with bright futures like Julius Randle, Mitchell Robinson, and Immanuel Quickley and could be the piece the Knicks need to secure a playoff spot.
Rose is one of the leagues most likable players and since his knee injury, everyone roots for the scrappy and athletic guard from Englewood. I hope New York works for Rose.
