Derrick Rose Fined $25k for Comments, Unharmed in Car Accident

Quite a day yesterday for DRose, as he became $25,000 poorer for comments made about the referees, and he was rear-ended while driving his Bentley but walked away from the accident unharmed. Per NBC Chicago: “Rose was in his 2011 Bentley going southbound on Interstate 90 at Ogden Avenue when he was struck by a Saturn, driven by Charles Tratwein of Dundalk, Md., state police said. Tratwein was not injured and Rose, who missed a few games last month because of back spasms, refused treatment at the scene. Rose told first responders that he would be checked by his own doctor at a later time. Via email, the Bulls said: ‘He is fine.’ Tratwein was cited with failure to reduce speed to avoid a crash.”

    1st two comments were funny.
    I wish SLAM would consolidate topics in one article more often. Example: “Carmelo wants to be traded” and “Knicks want to trade Melo” could’ve been one post.

    ” I’m the only superstar that’s getting rear ended”

    No one cut his breaks. It clearly states that HE was rear ended.

    On another note, we need deng tonight to win.

    @ Abaci Chris Bosh begs to differ.

    Good to see he’s ok. Glad he got the appropriate fine I thought since he seems to be the golden child of Thr NBA they’d be soft on him. Hopefully he remembers this and speaks softly but carries a big stick.

    No matter what DRose says he sounds like an assault victim discussing the details of his assault. Why does he always sound so dejected?
