Derrick Rose news? I  “DONNNNNNNNN’TTTTTT CARRRRRRRRREEEEEEEE” (credit Jay Cutler) when it comes to Derrick Rose return/rehabilitation coverage. I’ve been nauseated by the story for over a month already. Seriously, right now, I don’t want to even hear the name Derrick Rose until Bulls Media Day in October. But then I stumbled across this not quite amusing but possibly bemusing lawsuit according to Hip Hop 365 in which a 25-year old Peoria, Illinois man is suing the “injured” or “rehabilitating”  Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose for missing the current NBA season. The man claims that Rose’s 2012-13 no-show led to mental depression and his obesity. So clearly, this man has A LOT going for him in life. And obviously his priorities are PERFECTLY placed. From Hip Hop 365: A 25 year old Peoria Illinois man filed a lawsuit Thursday against Chicago Bulls Superstar Derrick Rose. Matthew Thompson, a self-described long-time Bulls fan, and electrician claims Rose missing the entire 2012-2013 NBA regular season has caused him to have mental breakdowns and emotional distress, which ultimately led to obesity issues. Thompson claims Rose was negligent in refusing to return despite being cleared by team doctors which led to his current health issues. It is currently unknown if Peoria County Officials are actually taking the lawsuit seriously, but this certainly adds some unintentional comedy to this Chicago Bulls season. Which has been a buzzkill to say the least. This Bulls season cannot end fast enough. I’m a big Bulls fan, AND I’M rooting for Deron Williams and the Brooklyn Nets to sweep them. As for the idea that Derrick Rose not playing NBA basketball can make you obese. Well, Derrick Rose is literally appearing on Giordano’s pizza boxes. And that’s a high calorie food. However, I think this idiot’s laziness and non stop-eating would be the actual culprit for his obesity; not Derrick Rose. Paul M. Banks is the owner of The Sports Bank.net.
