Sure, we will. But will we ever see the MVP he used to be?
Derrick Rose will miss the remainder of the season. He just played 53 games since 2010. After two significant injuries, he won’t regain the explosiveness he used to have. He won’t be the same player, ever. I’m not even sure he will have the sufficient level to play in NBA.
He is not the first top player injured. Soon, Kobe Bryant will be back, probably on friday.
Many players promised to great carrer have been stopped by injuries. The most famous example is Greg Oden! He was selected first in the 2007 NBA draft, before Kevin Durant but played only 82 games since 2007, because of a series off leg injuries. Brandon Roy is an other example: brilliant during his rookie year, he just played 5 seasons in the NBA before retiring, because of injuries…
Nevertheless, I guess there is still hope. And I dearly hope, with all my heart and all my being that we will see both Rose and Bryant on the pitch very soon. They are legends, and legends never die.
