With only a week or so left in the regular season, the Knickerbockers officially announced Sunday that Derrick Rose will (once again) be sidelined for the season. You couldn’t have made money off that prediction if you tried.
Rose’s latest injury is the sour icing on the spoiled rotten cake that was this New York Knicks calendar year. And to think I thought this team would make the playoffs. This cluster fuck of a season included one of its own getting arrested and tossed out of the building on live television, its oft-injured center suspended twenty games for violating the league’s drug policy, the ever-maligned GM criticized by a Hall of Famer who used to play for him, team ownership reaching unprecedented levels of unpopularity and the team finishing about 20 games under .500. It’s only fitting that after all that, a guy they owe $21 million injures his leg… yet again. London Bridge has officially fallen down and it can’t get up.
We here at SportsChump send Derrick Rose a sincere, get well card (we should have bought in bulk) but for the time being, here are a few Tweets that might even make the sickly point guard chuckle. After all, laughter is the best medicine.
