No Comparisons For D-Rose
CHICAGO (WSCR) — Derrick Rose, once again, found a way amaze everyone watching as his 39 points and numerous highlights led the Chicago Bulls past the Indiana Pacers in game one of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.
“Obviously he has a really unique combination from the point guard position, of speed athleticism and strength,” former Pacer and current CBS Sports analyst Clark Kellogg said on the Danny Mac Show.

And as Rose’s star continues to rise, the comparisons to former players continue to roll in, but it seems as if all of these comparisons fall short. Because it’s difficult to find another NBA great who has all of the skills that Rose has.
“Let’s just call him D-Rose and leave it at that,” Kellogg said. “He’s special in his humility and demeanor, the way he approaches his work. He seems to have an insatiable appetite for getting better, for not settling and he’s obviously earned the respect of his teammates by how he goes about his business. And that, to me, is as impressive as anything, when you figure he’s in his third year ad only 22-years old.”
Rose’s next opportunity to amaze will come on Monday night, when the Bulls and Pacers square off in game two.
