Derrick Rose dicked the Bucks at the end of the first, second, and third quarters. That’s why my nickname for him is “Dick Rose”, because he dicks people. Luckily (for Bucks fans like me, not pleb Timberwolves/Rose fans like you), by the end of the fourth quarter there was no need for continued dicking, as the Bucks finally pulled away.
Maybe Jimmy Butler was right about Karl-Anthony Towns. Maybe he is soft. The Timberwolves played really well last game with Anthony Tolliver and Taj Gibson leading the way (it was against the Knicks tho), and they played well again with those two and also Rose chipping in. We haven’t gotten to see literally any Timberwolves games without KAT since he was drafted; is there a sort of Ewing theory going on here?
I’m getting too speculative. Sorry. Even if KAT is a little soft, you can’t argue with his production.
But back to Rose: I’m still slightly peeved that he was snubbed from the All-Star game in favor of… whoever it was on the West squad that I thought shouldn’t have been there. LaMarcus Aldridge? No one wants to see him take midrange jumpers in the frickin’ All-Star game. And also, if they can give pity geriatric spots to Dwyane Wade and Dirk Nowitzki, why not Rose as well? He was looking just as washed up as those two, maybe even more so. Just because he isn’t going to retire imminently doesn’t mean he couldn’t have gotten one of those pity spots.
