Will Derrick Rose Resurrect His Career in Cleveland?

/ No Comments
NBA – On July 25, 2017, former MVP and 3-time NBA All-star Derrick Rose signed a 1 year deal worth $2.1 million with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Rose contract with the Cavaliers was his lowest contract since entering the league and despite having many suitors or teams that can give him a much better salary this season Rose decided to join LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers under a minimum salary for an NBA veteran.


Derrick Rose was drafted by the Chicago Bulls as the #1 pick overall in the 2008 NBA Draft and later that year he wins the “Rookie of the Year”, since then he has been the face of the Bulls, a title contender and a treat to the LeBron James team in the East. In 2011, Derrick Rose became the youngest player in the NBA to win the Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award at age 22 years old ending LeBron James possible 3rd straight MVP.

Rose career with the Bulls has been a mixed of good and bad, the Bulls have always been a title contender every season and a treat to LeBron James whether in Miami or in Cleveland when Rose is healthy? And due to frequent injury that Rose encountered every season his faith with the Bulls slowly fades away, not until he was traded in 2016 sending him to the Knicks where he play for the 1 season and again was ruled out for the rest of the season after tearing the meniscus in his left knee.

Derrick Rose was once an NBA Superstar in his early years and perhaps top ten point guard in the league with less versatility, at age 28 he is still young and way more to go in his NBA Career if only his injury will not cheat him? Rose injury front caused him from being a max player of averaging $21.32 million salary last year in Knicks uniform and now down to a minimum veteran’s fee of $2.1 million with Cleveland.

Now that Derrick Rose will join forces with his former rival LeBron James in Cleveland will his career revitalized? Especially that Kyrie Irving demanded a trade out of Cleveland, Rose will have more playing time at point guard position and perhaps help the Cavaliers reach their 4th straight NBA Finals appearance and wins his first ever NBA Championship?

NBA – NBA Champion and 4-time NBA All-star Kyrie Irving is in the hot seat today after several rumors in the National Basketball Association (NBA) that the superstar point guard of the Cleveland Cavaliers requested a trade from the Cavaliers.

Irving has been part of the last three NBA Finals appearance of the Cleveland Cavaliers and in fact he is the one who made the clutch 3-points shots or “The Shot” in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors and that also gives the first ever NBA Championship of the franchise ending a 52 years of drought of any major sports championship.

But why Kyrie wants out of Cleveland despite LeBron James is still on the roster for the upcoming 2017 – 2018 NBA Season and their team are still highly favored of returning back to the Finals? There are several rumors that Irving was disappointed after his name was included in a trade against former Indiana Pacers Paul George and former Chicago Bulls Jimmy Butler? Despite the trade didn’t make it, the failed trade leaves Kyrie Irving unhappy?

Another rumor is that Irving wants to be the guy or the main man on a team that he will be the first options unlike in Cleveland he is only second to LeBron James that obviously runs the team and finally Irving also doesn’t want to be left behind in the 2018 Free Agency if LeBron James decided to leave Cleveland for the second time? Irving already announces if James leaves, he also wants out of Cleveland?

Kyrie Irving demanded trade is just rumors and speculations for now, but the rumors shakes the faith of the Cavaliers chance of returning back in the Finals despite LeBron James the best player on the planet is still there, he will need a sidekick like Kyrie Irving to be able to compete against the super team Golden State Warriors.

Will the Cleveland Cavaliers granted Kyrie Irving’s demanded trade? Or keep him till 2019 and waits in 2018 NBA Free Agency where LeBron James biggest free agency in on the line? Let’s wait and see this coming day!
