NBA player Derrick Rose had a rather surprising answer after being asked whether he thinks he’ll make it to the NBA Hall Of Fame when his illustrious career comes to an end.
Rose, who is possibly the biggest what-if story in the NBA, is currently playing for the New York Knicks but had a blistering start to his career in Chicago.
He won Rookie of the Year, and then he was the youngest-ever MVP. Unfortunately, injuries derailed his career. That has led some to wonder about Derrick Rose’s Hall of Fame chances.
Speaking in an interview after a win, the guard was asked about what he thinks about his chances of being a hall of famer, and apparently, he doesn’t care much.
“Who wouldn’t want to make the Hall of Fame one day? But there are a couple (of) ways you could look at it. I’d be very grateful for that, but at the same time, can someone in here name a famous gladiator? he asked.
“In 200-300 years, nobody is going to care about what went on… The things I want to do after basketball I feel like are going to be bigger than what I do in basketball.”
Still, it would be awesome if Derrick Rose was inducted into the Hall of Fame at some point. That’s probably unlikely, given the lack of accolades he had after his injury.
