Derrick Rose's legacy will live under LeBron James's long shadow - Sports Illustrated
The latter’s fragile knees nixed that over the course of the last five difficult seasons. But through the lens of Rose’s career, the parallel is striking—James is the spectre that hangs over his fragmented peak. So much of it feels distant and vestigial while diving down Derrick Rose YouTube sinkholes ( there are many to explore ). There was the seven-game series with Boston in 2009, where he dropped an intoxicating 36 points and 11 assists as a rookie... In the the two years after that, he ran into James and lost, and a rivalry developed between the conference’s two best teams—first the Cavs and then the Heat. During LeBron’s free agency, there were rumors of his interest in Chicago, and that Rose wouldn’t bother to recruit him to the Bulls. It all bred serious contempt from Chicago fans toward James, especially in 2011, when the Bulls won the first game of the East finals, then dropped four straight as Miami cruised. That was supposed to be the year—the Bulls won 62 games, their best mark since Michael Jordan, while starting Keith Bogans at the two. In that span of time, Rose was far and away the most dynamic point guard in the league. The Bulls won the conference again the next season, which was shortened by the lockout. Rose’s ACL gave out in Philly in the first game of the 2012 playoffs, and things never really got better afterward. James and his teams knocked the Bulls out four times in six playoff trips, from 2010–2015, each less painful and more inevitable as Rose struggled and largely failed to stay healthy. His explosion was sapped, his assist numbers dipped, and his scoring became less and less efficient. In hindsight, last year’s East semifinals against LeBron and the Cavs were Rose’s final chance to alter the script. I covered Game 3 in Chicago, in which Rose exploded off a screen, the game tied at 96 and three seconds left, to hoist a game-winning prayer of a three for a 2–1 series lead. He deserved it. I was also on hand for the next game, in which LeBron famously waved off David Blatt and drew up his own game-winning jumper to suck the air out of the Bulls for good. They lost the next two games and the series, Game 6 in Chicago marking the end of Tom Thibodeau in Chicago and spawning rumors of disdain between Rose and his much-improved backcourt mate, Jimmy Butler. It felt like the beginning of the end. And repeated denials from both players aside, Butler returned the next season to rankle some feathers and carry himself like a superstar. The Bulls lumbered to a 42–40 mark in Rose’s healthiest season since 2011, with questions about leadership running from the locker room up to the front office. James was always fighting against Cleveland’s title drought and the tide of his own, warranted hype. Rose was never pegged as the next Jordan, but the shadow of MJ’s success with the franchise cast a high degree of expectations. His injuries lowered the bar for the team’s results, but not for the individual. And while Rose was stripped of agency as his athletic prime slipped away, he could never seem to get much benefit of the doubt for it. • Barkley: LeBron will never be Top 5 | Butler posts Rose tribute.www.si.com

West Ham transfer news: Hammers sensationally linked to Real Madrid's James Rodriguez - The Independent
West Ham have been sensationally linked to Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez. The Colombia international has suffered a mixed spell at Madrid since joining the La Liga giants in 2014 in a deal reportedly worth €80 million. Despite enjoying European success with Los Blancos, the 25-year-old has frequently found himself on the periphery of Rafa Benitez and Zinedine Zidane’s teams. Despite being relatively settled in the Spanish capital, without the guarantee of first team football the Colombian may be open to joining one of the numerous sides interested in him. Manchester United, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain have all been linked to the attacking midfielder and Marca has claimed that West Ham have now joined the long list of potential suitors. Rodriguez has been valued at around €80m by his club and it’s unclear whether the east London side would be willing to match such a high asking fee, despite having the funds to do so. . Thanks to their generous lease agreement at the Olympic... They recently offered former star Carlos Tevez a £150,000-a-week contract in an attempt to bring him back to the club. And unlike the other suitors linked to Rodrgiuez, West Ham would undoubtedly be able to guarantee the 25-year-old a starting position. If the Hammers were to pull of such a deal it would surely be the biggest and most lucrative transfers in the club’s history.www.independent.co.uk
