Derrick Rose has found his game once again while playing for his former coach Tom Thibodeau and the Minnesota Timberwolves. He is one of the main candidates to win the Sixth Man of the Year award if he continues to play at such a high level.

Prior to his days with the Timberwolves, Rose had a rather unsuccessful stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers where he teamed up with a couple of other legends like Dwyane Wade and LeBron James. Unfortunately, that team didn't gel well which resulted in losing many games that initiated a big trade that sent Rose back to his former coach.

In a recent interview, his former teammate Dwyane Wade touched upon the topic of the hard work Derrick Rose puts in every day he comes to practice. This is definitely true because after all the health problems Rose experienced, working hard every day is the only way to achieve something in a league that is moving very fast and players are each other's competition for playing time. Wade also mentioned he wants his son Zaire to spend some time with Rose to see how a true professional approaches the game in regards to preparation and staying in shape.

“I tell my son: Go spend a day or two with Derrick Rose and see how he prepares his mind, see how he prepares his body to play the game.

“I think it’s been great for kids to be able to see a guy who came in with so much athleticism and go through what he’s been through, but still pick himself up and continue to do something that he loves and do it differently but still be very good at it. And it looks like he’s having a lot of joy.”

Wade's son Zaire has shown incredible talent so far and he might follow his dad's footsteps in the near future. In that case, an advice from someone who was the youngest MVP in NBA history might do the trick.
