I am not sure if Derrick Rose is trying to convince us or himself. He has been talking a lot lately, but frankly like a boxer who does a lot of talking before a fight, until you step into that ring (or the court in this case), it is just a lot of talk. Here is what D Rose had to say about his explosiveness courtesy of SLAM Magazine. I think I’m a lot quicker, a lot more explosive, and I think I’m gonna go this year without that many nagging injuries, just trying to prevent it by stretching and doing all the things I have to do to take care of my body. When you first come in the League and you’re talented and you’re athletic, you don’t care about stretching or anything. You just kind of go out there and overlook that stuff. But now it’s my sixth year, so you really have to look at that and take that more seriously so I can prevent all of the little injuries. Physically there hasn’t been anything wrong with Derrick Rose for a long time, we will see where he is mentally when live bullets are shooting at him.
