Derrick Rose simply AMAZING

Game 1 of the 2011 Playoffs was not a disappointment. The Bulls, young and inexperienced but with the best record in the league and arguably the best player in the league, came real close to a disastrous start by losing their first game at home to a Pacer team with a 37-45 record and nothing to lose. Derrick Rose though did what he does best, stepped it up in the 4th quarter and led this team to the W. Rose finished with a career playoff high 39 points along with 6 assists 6 rebounds and 3 blocks. The 3 pt shot definitely wasn't there as he went 0-9, but when it mattered late in the game he had a couple of nice drives in the lane including an unbelievable layup where he was fouled and completed the 3 pt play. Derrick Rose proved today, what he has proven all season, he definitely deserves the MVP award. I really wish I would've jumped on Rose early in his career, as his stuff is way to high right now, as a matter of fact besides the auto'd ball that I have, I only have a few Derrick Rose cards, and this one is my best one. Numbered to 25, this 09-10 Panini Timeless Treasures Rookie Year Materials, is the patch parallel and features a nice two color black and red patch from a Rose jersey. If he keeps playing at this level, I'll probably never be able to afford another nice Rose card again!!


  1. That is a quality patch right there. Trying to determine what part of the jersey it comes from. Any ideas?

    I got super lucky and pulled a D-Rose auto from the last pack of an 2008-09 Fleer Blaster that was like 50 or 60%-off, and now I'm just a soon-to-arrive swatch away from completing my D-Rose trifecta! I'll never likely be able to get any more hits of him without pulling them though. It's for the best though, and here's hoping he continues his meteoric rise.

  2. I dunno, I'm thinking maybe its part of the letter or number patch of a home white jersey? A nice pull on the D-Rose auto!
