Will he or won’t he? That was the reoccurring theme for the Chicago Bulls this season in regards to the potential return of their All-Star point guard Derrick Rose. He never did, and the vague updates have taken a toll on a 25-year-old Chicago man who is reportedly trying to sue the star for the emotional distress the Rose-less season has caused.
According to HipHop365:
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.
According to reports, Thompson claims Rose displayed negligent behavior by refusing to return to the court, despite having been cleared by team doctors. He blames his health issues on the MVP’s refusal to return.
