Derrick Rose has scored 20+ points in 7 of his past 10 games. Rose has looked different so I wanted to break down this new Derrick Rose, but first I’d appreciate it if you would subscribe to Pewdiepie. Did y’all think I was gonna say me? Pewdiepie is a solo creator and a solo creator should be at the top of YouTube plus the memes have been great. Also turn on post notifications, cause as we know YouTube is half-broken and hit that like button for the amount of time Derrick Rose has spent in the air in his career, 4123.
So I broke down Derrick Rose’s 50 point game and how he’s not the same as his MVP year. Rose is no longer as quick, but he has added a lot. I think it’s important to remember that 2 years ago, Rose averaged 18 points per game on 47% shooting from the field yet no one really cared. Now Derrick Rose is averaging 19.3 points per game on 50.5% shooting and everyone is in shock. Why? Stats don’t always tell the full story. Yes, let’s get the obvious thing out of the way. Derrick Rose is shooting 49.4% from 3, attempting 3.7 3s a game. Yeah, a career 29.6% 3 point shooter before this season is shooting lights out. Like this was Derrick Rose. Some of that has to do with how Derrick Rose is shooting on his way up without jumping as high as he used to. He holds his follow through a bit longer, and his body is more square to the basket. But what it really comes down to is rhythm and freedom.
Even though Rose’s stats on the Knicks looked great, he has said that there wasn’t any freedom in the triangle and so he couldn’t play the way he wanted. On the Cavs, he had a freak injury and that whole season was in turmoil. Even before the Knicks, Rose was battling injuries and expectations after the initial ACL injury. Being the 6th man on the Timberwolves has given him something he hasn’t had in a long time, freedom to run an offense. Rose is given the keys to the second unit and can kinda go wherever he wants on the court when he is on the court. He can use his dribbling and handles to not only go by people but also get in a rhythm and comfort zone. Rose has always been the most effective when he can dribble more than 3 times. While players tend to get less efficient as they dribble more, Rose is one of those players that gets a better feel and more in rhythm to either explode off correctly or take a jumper, similar to how James Harden’s handles gives Harden the edge even if he’s not overly athletic. Rose isn’t that athletic anymore and so he can’t rely on that athleticism. As basketball players and as Kobe has explained, your moves get into a rhythm that you are used to, like a beat of a song, and Derrick Rose in this season has started to rely on handles and smart moves. And because he has freedom within the offense, he gets to look more like the Derrick Rose of the old, holding on to the ball longer, putting on some moves and driving inside the paint. And as time as progressed in the season, Rose’s confidence has went up and up and up. The mental aspect of sports is not to be underrated. It can make you from a bad player to good, good player to great and Rose said this is the happiest he has been in years.
The Timberwolves are an above average 3 point shooting team this season and so Derrick Rose gets a lot of space to operate which is great for a guy who likes to drive. Defenses can’t pack the paint as much and so Derrick Rose can take on the interior defender 1 on 1.
But since Rose has also developed the 3, he also has something he never had, off-ball value. Rose wasn’t really a guy that could add value off-ball because he wasn’t a shooter and he wasn’t a guy that would move off-ball, but now he can catch and shoot. Now Derrick Rose justifies his presence on the floor even if he doesn’t have the ball. So not only do we see Rose looking like Rose of the old with offensive rein, we also see a new Derrick Rose that has a 3, that is smarter, that has adjusted his game, but the most important thing for Rose is his confidence and freedom that he has on the Timberwolves. It’s great to see Rose back and happy playing basketball. For the amount of injuries that he’s dealt with, it amazes me that he can just come back and it reminds me of basketball in early 2010, just nostalgia man. Now Rose is playing it at a high level. Can Derrick Rose keep this up? Can he make it to the all-star game?
