Kevin Durant Expects Derrick Rose to Return ‘Stronger and Better’

Kevin Durant is cheering on Derrick Rose as he recovers from knee surgery, and the Thunder superstar thinks Rose will be back to his old self (and perhaps, even better) once he returns. From the Oklahoman: “Add the three-time reigning NBA scoring champ among those not counting out Chicago star Derrick Rose. Kevin Durant said the Bulls point guard, who mangled his knee in last year’s playoffs, will soon be back and better than ever. ‘I know he’s going to get back stronger and better,’ said Durant. ‘I’ve been praying for him, of course. And I’ve been watching the (workout) videos online, so I’m sure he’s going to have a really, really nice comeback here for the Bulls and be at full strength.’ Durant said he expects Rose to benefit from a stringent workout regimen. ‘I think he’ll be better,’ Durant said. ‘With all that weight training he’s doing, strengthening his body and his core, he’s doing everything he needs to do.’”

    Let’s hope he uses the right PED. I hope he comes back 110%. HGH for the win.

    I agree with Kevin. That moment when he’s introduced in the United Center again will be a lot of fun to watch.

    i don’t see how he comes back “better” — unless, PED’s.

  • ByAnyMeansNecessary

    He could come back stronger in his upper body and with more balance. If that happens and his explosiveness is what it was, he’ll be a better player. Add a better jumpshot to that and you’re looking at a top 5 player again.

    HGH for a very short period of time may not be such a bad idea considering the severity of his injury. I wonder if players get tested for PEDs when they’re out with an injury for so long.

    all games are televised, so yes

    Sorry, but there is nothing in his series of workout videos that suggest he is anywhere close to coming back anytime soon, let alone better.
