(CBS) Dear Jon ‘Stugotz’ Weiner and Marc Hochman of 790 The Ticket in Miami :
I would personally like to take the time to thank you two idiots for your idiotic statements regarding reigning NBA MVP– and Chicago’s favorite son — Derrick Rose.
If it weren’t for you two buffoons, Bulls fans probably wouldn’t be seeing Chicago as the hottest team in the NBA right now riding a current eight-game winning streak. They probably wouldn’t currently own the best record in the NBA (for the second straight season), and that certain point guard you disrespected probably wouldn’t be on the tear that he is currently on.
Ever since you two decided to call out Mr. Rose as a “fraud,” complained that he wasn’t dancing and carrying on like an idiot at the all-star game in Orlando, and proclaimed him to be the worst MVP in the history of the league, all that kid from the South Side of Chicago has done is play like a man possessed.
And like it or not, if Derrick Rose continues on the torrid pace that he is on and the Bulls keep playing the way they are right now down the stretch, that same “fraud” just might win his second straight league MVP trophy.
One of my favorite things to tell people is, “Never poke a stick at a sleeping tiger, because eventually, that tiger is going to wake up. And once he does, you are not going to like the outcome.”
Congratulations, you two.
That sleeping tiger you decided to poke that plays his home games at the United Center in Chicago has risen from his slumber and he is taking out his anger on anyone and everyone in his path.
On the season, Derrick Rose is averaging 22.7 ppg, 7.8 apg, 3.4 rpg, and 0.9 spg.
In the six games he has played since your pre-pubescent remarks, Rose is averaging 26.3 ppg, 8.3 apg, 4.3 rpg, and 1.3 spg.
Since the two of you are probably incapable of basic math, let me help you out: His numbers are better across the board since you two decided to run your mouths.
The MVP award doesn’t always go to the player that scores the most points or averages the most rebounds or assists per game. It doesn’t always go to the “best player” either. If it did, Michael Jordan would have won the MVP every year he played in the league.
Instead, the award usually goes to the player that is the “most valuable” to his team.
Do either of you really think the Chicago Bulls would be 33-8 on the year without Derrick Rose running the show?
You are damn right they wouldn’t be, because a player like Rose is worth his weight in gold.
While he may not have the overall talent of a LeBron James or the scoring ability of a Kevin Durant or a Kobe Bryant, Derrick is just as important to his team as those players are to theirs.
To undervalue what he means to the Bulls is a joke, and the fact that people like you two can’t see that is an even bigger joke.
My advice to you is to never speak about any topic you have absolutely no clue about. It makes you look stupid, but more importantly, it makes you lose any and all credibility you may have had prior to opening your traps.
But like I said earlier: Thanks you two.
You may have done the Chicago Bulls and their fans a huge favor heading towards the playoffs.
