Derrick Rose left Monday’s 15-point win over the Cavs late in the fourth quarter with what the team called a tweaked hamstring. Naturally, Bulls fans have ruled the injury career-threatening.
“I don’t care that the team said his departure from the game was precautionary and that Rose himself said he’s not going to miss any time from it,” said Stanley Chell, a self-described “die-hard Bulls fan” from Naperville. “I’m sure he’s done for the season. He’ll probably never play again.”
Chell insisted “we’ve all been through this before” after Rose’s injury drama last season and many Bulls fans are calling the star point guard weak and injury prone.
“Sure he came back from his knee surgery in the best shape of his life and has looked more athletic than any other player on the court,” said Stacy Keenan, from River North, another “die-hard fan.” “He’s clearly just one of those guys who gets hurt all the time and that’s going to dog him for the rest of his career, which we probably saw end tonight as he walked off the court with a barely noticeable limp.”
