Derrick Rose had quite the day two days ago. In his words, it was the worst day of his life. I’m not sure if that is hyperbole or not, but rest assured it was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

Rose started off the day, sore and achy. It turns out he tweaked his groin the night before against the Knicks. It was the injury added to the insult of getting blocked by Jeremy Lin…seriously, he was hurt on that play. Not only did Derrick take a physical hit, but he took a monetary one as well. He was fined $25,000 for his comments criticizing the refs the night before against the Knicks. He is a rich, rich man after signing his contract extension with the Bulls and his mega-shoe deal with Adidas, but still, $25,000 is $25,000.

In case his list of crappy happenings was large enough at this point, he had to go and get an MRI. I don’t know if you’ve ever had one before, but it’s not fun. You have to sit in a claustrophobic tube for what feels like forever, without moving. Derrick caught is one break of the day here, as there was no serious damage, just a tweak.

The oddest blow, though, came on his way to the doctor. He was involved in an accident when he was rear-ended. It was quite the capper to a cruddy day.

Things worked out though, and after watching the Heat game today, I think he put it all behind him. He was all smiles, plus with Shots like this:

 

how can you be mad? The Bulls pulled out the upset making for a Tremendous, fantastic, great, very good day for Chicagoans.
