A Wheeler's Opinion: Derrick Rose Should Retire, Here's why

His injuries will forever hamper his game. It's time that he considers retirement

Derrick Rose used to be one the most explosive point guards in the league, especially during his early years with the Chicago Bulls. 

He won the Rookie of the Year award back in 2009 and was included in the NBA All-Rookie Team in the same year. Two years later, he won the MVP award along with his inclusion to the All-NBA Team. 

That was the season when Rose averaged 25 points and 7 assists per game. That was also the same season when Derrick Rose sustained an injury during the playoffs- an injury that has been haunting him for years now, an injury that has affected his game forever.

Despite his inability to stay healthy in the long run, Derrick Rose stayed in the NBA, playing for the New York Knicks for a season and just last offseason, he signed a one-year deal to play alongside LeBron James in Cleveland. To Rose's credit, he produced some decent numbers while averaging 14 points in the 7 games that he has played this season.

Then, Derrick Rose was hit with an injury that has kept him out. Again.

Now, reports are coming out that Derrick Rose has decided to stay away from basketball, to stay away from the Cleveland Cavaliers and evaluate whether or not he can still go on in the sports. In fact, reports are also saying that retirement has been among the options that Rose is looking at the moment.

Question: Is it really time for the former league MVP to hang his jersey for good?


Assuming that Derrick Rose does decide to retire, it will be for his good too. His body can now rest. He isn't getting younger and Father Time won't stop for him either. Although he is still able to play, he doesn't have to. The Cavs are doing just fine without him and Isaiah Thomas. Retire now and give his roster spot to someone else. After all, despite their recently-found success, the Cavs need more healthy bodies because LeBron  James can't save the Cavs every single game.


Derrick Rose's impending decision to retire will benefit both him and the Cavs.  For Rose, retirement is the best decision he can make because injuries will always be around especially if he chooses to remain active. After all, there's life after basketball, right?
