    Rose's worst-case scenario is better than 99% of the world's best-case scenario.
    True. Also true: Roy Hibbert shoots the three better than 99.999% of the planet.

    But since this *IS* a forum to talk about pro basketball, and since one of the top players in the game just suffered a season- and maybe career-ending injury, it's not a bad thing to commiserate with the dude. Hate on the 1% later.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    He put it rather crassly, but I get the point he's making. Of all the people in the world whose misfortunes warrant shedding tears over, a multimillionaire athlete is pretty low on the list, even if that athlete's career is in jeopardy. Rose's worst-case scenario is better than 99% of the world's best-case scenario.
    Will he be set financially? Sure.

    But I never got the impression Rose only played the game for the money. I'm not talking about the commercial either.

    I'm not saying he needs to be put on suicide watch, but for a lot of NBA players this is their life. You put 21 years of your life into something only to have your dream cut short.

    Again, financially he will be fine. Life throws everyone curve balls, it happens and I get that. To me, to brush it under the rug as "He is a millionaire, he'll be fine."(paraphrasing) just irritates me.

    I'm not even a Derrick Rose fan, but I can't imagine what he is going through right now.

    EDIT: I agree with what you're saying. There are most definitely a lot more important things happening in the world, thats obvious. Minimalizing his situation just irks me, thats all.

    The NBA is always more interesting when there are a lot of great players and they are healthy. Hope he can come back.

    I don't like to see anyone get hurt, even a Chicago Bull.

    Wade is the only guy in the league I won't give 2 sh*ts about, only because he has tried to hurt other players through out his career.

    There is no * IMO the Bull's where not championship contenders anyway.

    I would rather the pacers lose against Rose than win against the Bulls without him. They will always be able to point to that last game. No I am not at all happy about this.

    This sucks. It really, really sucks. No other way to put it. I don't particularly like Rose and I absolutely don't like the Bulls, but man this is a shame for basketball in general if it is indeed an ACL tear.

    If the Pacers play and beat the Bulls anymore this season, it will be done with the Bulls at full strength. If Rose is out, hurt and can't perform, then he won't be part of the functional team.

    The Bulls will be full strength with who they have left.
    Otherwise, it would be like calling them not at full strength because MJ is not with the team anymore.

    Unfortunately, its the nature of the game.*

    *(see Pacers Star Danny Granger)
    But an hour or so later, Hibbert wrote on his Twitter account: "Love this coach [and] I love this team. We can go far this year if we play like that. 2night we played our hearts out. Just didn't get the win."

    Agreed. Personally, I'll likely toil away the rest of my life working 9-5's and still never make what Rose will make just during this (potential) rehab. He'll be fine. He'll go home to his big house and his hot wife, having the greatest medical professionals available to man tending to his injury. And even if he can't play again he's young enough and rich enough to have every single option open to him for the rest of his life. He even has good SAT scores, right? Yeah, count me out of the sob-fest too.

    I hope it's nothing, but I'm kinda pissed at the Bulls head coach. He should have been monitoring Rose's minutes better instead of giving him 30min/gm. Thibbs rides his starters way too hard.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    Not surprising the way he plays and moves, been saying this for years. Never been a big fan of the stuff he says, either. Don't like to see injuries, but the NBA will move on.
    There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.

    In retrospect, Rose's decision not to come back for the playoffs was probably a good one. He wasn't ready.

    I hate to say it but when I see an athlete just collapse with no contact, I assume the worst.

    I'm no fun of Mumbles Rose since he plays for the Bulls, but I'd be lying if I didn't love watching him beat up random WC teams in games that have little meaning for the Pacers. Before the knee injury he was fun to watch.
    Already stoked for 2013-2014.

    Dude what? We already beat them with Rose, plus you think the Bulls would feel the same way if we lost PG? Hell no.

    I feel bad for D Rose as he is a fierce competitor and really loves the game. Life just isn't fair sometimes.
