Twitter Reacts: Rose’s Meniscus Surgery

From staff reports

News of Derrick Rose being out for the season following successful surgery to repair the medial meniscus in his right knee was met with nearly equal parts well wishes for Rose specifically and keep-your-chin-up thoughts for the Bulls at large. Here is a smattering of some of what notable NBA players, ex-players, media types and more had to say about Rose’s injury:


  1. lbj says:

    Rose is done! even he is not injured he will not beat the king “LeBron” or even see him in playoffs because they will not qualify why don’t you follow Oden who will get his first ring by the end of June next year. We will sign Rose for a minimum veteran salary and give our future hall of fame Norris Cole to Chicago!

    • HoopsNation says:

      You’re an idiot!

      • Common Sense says:

        He’s obviously kidding and trying to piss people off. Norris Cole is a joke and If being “done” was defined by being worse than LBJ then the NBA would be “done”. And Oden getting a ring is stupid. We’re talking about individual careers not TEAM wins. If it was all about rings then we would be talking about Bill Russell, Sam Jones, Tom Heinsohn, K.C. Jones, Tom Sanders, John Havlicek, Jim Loscutoff, Frank Ramsey and Robert Horry as being the best basketball players to ever play the game. All the best to Rose, He fought to come back by this year, he’ll be back next year!! Everyone knows he will!

      • Opeyemi F says:

        As a Heat fan I can say that is an unfair statement & you aint a true fan of the sport!
        Get well soon D-Rose, God Bless!

      • Alex says:

        Wow! Your a true IDIOT! As good as a player like Lebron James is, even he would be sad to know he has you as a fan.

      • vsarathy says:

        im so upset i have grown up a bulls fan and to see rose out again is just horrible. I thought this year was going to be his breakout season after all the work in rehab and now hes gone for another year. and @lbj norris cole will never becoem a hall of famer and the bulls would never trade d rose for him.

    • Andy says:

      LBJ, idiot=Queen’s fan!!!

    • DC says:

      Kid, go back to kindergarten. All your comments are irrelevant…

      • lbj says:

        Common guys face the reality 1 year off last season then another year again on the 2nd season. Wake up guys!!! no one ever done it before, Grant Hill, T-Mac, Vince Carter etc they never came back like before. D-Rose can still play for 2014-2015 season but not the same anymore in 2011. I’m just helping him to get his ring before he’s completely done like Iverson.

      • MarioT1000 says:

        This guy’s saying noone has done it.. Bernard King. Watch 30 for 30 once in a while..

    rose can come back. he will do it. he has struggled but with a good rehab and a positive mind, he can come back stronger than ever. GOOD LUCK ROSE STAY POSITIVE. #THERETURN2014

  3. pete says:

    Future Hall of Fame Norris Cole! LOLLLLLLLLLLL

  4. Johnny Kilroy says:

    Agreed. It would be great to have a spam filter for comments lacking in any merit, or maybe something in the disclaimer regarding verbal diarrhoea. This is saddening news, so much talent unfairly going to waste. Growing up following Grant Hill and seeing (at the time) his seemingly limitless potential abilities and career cruelly thwarted/altered by injury was extremely unfortunate and left a feeling in my mind of “what if..?” type scenarios. DRose is still young enough and has will to rise again, the basketball fraternity is behind him. Onward and upward.

  5. 123 says:

    xaxaaxaa.. lbj-you rock))) good for you

  6. Woot woot! says:

    oh well.. he’s done!

  7. IHateChicago says:

    hahaha Rose is done. He’s pathetic.

  8. Bullsfan says:

    I’m sad to say that i’m done with Drose now….Not saying that he is a bad player and let’s us down, but you are too fast to play within a human body. You need to made of rubber to be as fast as Drose. My body would’ve exploded by now. What is he made of?

  9. lbj is the boss says:

    Guys! you all must have forgotten Norris Cole’s rookie season when he averaged 20+ ppg, 8+apg, and 7+rpg.
    Norris Cole is an all-star, and can even be a hall-of-famer considering the championship rings he has.

  10. I visited multiple web sites except the audio feature for audio songs current at this web site is genuinely marvelous.
