At the beginning of the season, the Minnesota Timberwolves point guard, Derrick Rose, demonstrates solid numbers – 15 points, 3.6 rebounds and 5.0 assists, while shooting at 41.8 percent from the floor.
Timberwolves’ president of basketball operations and coach, Tom Thibodeau, is not surprised about that. Speaking about Derrick Rose’s strong start, Thibodeau said, per Pioneer Press: “As long as he’s healthy, he’ll be one of the best players in the league.”
Despite the fact, that Rose comes off the bench, he still “feels comfortable leading Wolves’ second unit” (per “Startribune”). In the 2010-2011 season, Derrick Rose became the youngest MVP in NBA history. Since then, he hasn’t played the entire season without break due to various injuries.
