Derrick Rose Tells Doubters To ‘Kill Themselves’, Apologizes Afterwards


Derrick Rose’s performances for the Minnesota Timberwolves is the feel good story of the season. After almost being out of the league, Tom Thibodeau and the Wolves gave Rose another shot. It turned out to be a win win situation for both parties involved. The trust Thibodeau had in him is one of the main reasons why Rose was sad and angry that the team fire Thibs. While Rose has every right to be sad, he went a little off the rails when asked about the firing, telling his doubters to kill themselves:


“I have a lot of confidence in myself. Thibs was just the coach that believed in me. I mean, he jump-started my career again and for that, I’ll always be thankful. But everybody that thinks that it’s gonna stop, kill yourself. It’s just not.”



Rose later apologized for taking things a little too far:


“I messed up by using the slang term “kill yourself” today in response to a question about whether I can continue to perform without coach Thibs. I did not mean it literally and regret using it so I apologize.”
