Even despite his injuries and setbacks in his career in which have never seen him reach his MVP playing level again, people throughout the league and especially NBA fans still adore Derrick Rose.

He was one of the most feared offensive players in the association, and now remains a solid fan favorite throughout NBA fan bases. I believe NBA fans want him to succeed so badly because of what he’s been through. I think it’s fair to say that Rose’s struggles throughout his career are relatable to the struggles individuals face in their everyday life.

No matter what situation we are faced with in life, we always have to look for a way to fight, and NBA fans sympathize with the journey Rose has undertaken in his career so far. It’s the ability of seeing someone overcome a difficult situation and come back that makes him a feel-good player around the association.

Not many players would have had the fight in them to continue their career after four knee surgeries, and eye procedure and surgery on the elbow, but Rose always came back.

Last week, Rose signed with the Memphis Grizzlies and will now once again call the city of Memphis home. Rose played college in Memphis and now also revealed that he is bringing back his collegiate number, 23, for the first time in his professional career. Fans love it.



Rose averaged 14.9 points, 4.7 assists and 4.5 rebounds in 40 games and led Memphis to a 38-2 overall record. They made the National Championship, losing out to Kansas 75-68 in overtime for the title.
