Derrick Rose appeared in his 500th career game on Wednesday when the Toronto Raptors beat his team the Minnesota Timberwolves 112-105.

Although Timberwolves lost the game, Rose didn’t disappoint. He finished with 16 points, five assists and three rebounds in 30 min. He continues his double digits scoring in a fourth-straight game. So far, he is averaging 15 points and five assists per game.

It seems like neither the injuries can stop his career. He is looking solid so far and everybody is talking positively about his game and his future as a player. He has all the support from his teammates and coach.

“To do the things that he’s done, it says a lot about who he is,” said Tom Thibodeau. Minnesota’s coach and president of basketball operations, also told the Pioneer Press that if Rose stays healthy he would be one of the best in the league.

“As long as he’s healthy, he’ll be one of the best players in the league”, added Tom Thibodeau.

“Early in my career, I stated what I was going to do.” Rose then added: “Now I just want to let my game speak for itself. When I’m out there, I think my peers know, but the media is probably catching up. But I feel like my peers give me the respect that I deserve.”

Rose said he is finally feeling lucky because he is getting the opportunities to play his game.

“My teammates give me the confidence to go out there and play the way I normally play,” Rose said. “My job is to put a lot of pressure on the defense and try to get guys open. These last couple years I’ve been piecing my game together by figuring out during the game when do I attack when I do pull back, when do I facilitate the game? It’s gradually coming. It’s a process, but it’s coming slowly.”

With the work he has done so far is looking good and we the support his coach and team is giving him everyone is looking forward to seeing what more Derrick Rose has to bring. But the deniable thing is that he is happy to be back in the league

“I’m just happy to be back in the league, I’m happy to be with a franchise that wants me,” Rose said.
