Dwyane Wade Proud of Derrick Rose for Not Rushing Back

Despite enormous pressure to return to the court, Derrick Rose has resisted until he’s completely ready (both physically and mentally, following major knee surgery.) Dwyane Wade admires the cautious approach his rival has taken. Per the Chicago Tribune: “Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat hope to add to their 27-game winning streak Wednesday when they visit the Chicago Bulls. But Wade also sympathizes with the plight of Bulls guard Derrick Rose, who has yet to return from an ACL tear suffered a year ago. ‘When Derrick is ready … no one knows his body like he does,’ Wade said. ‘We can all speculate on whatever we think, but I think he’s doing the right thing. He’s taking his time to come back. I mean, he’s a young guy. Obviously, the city of Chicago and the Chicago Bulls are going to lean on him a lot. He’s going to do some amazing things. You don’t want him to not be 100 percent. From afar I have been proud of how he has handled this situation, not rushing back until he’s ready.’”

    I think the reason why he admires it is because how Wade always seemed to come back to soon from injuries or not taking care of them properly. They would linger and he wouldn’t be at his best. If he just did what Rose did who knows what position Miami would have been in the year after they got swept.

    He returned early after rehabbing his shoulder (instead of getting surgery right after the injury) and played through tendonitis in his knees. Then the entire next year he wasn’t himself, Shaq got traded, the 2006 championship team fell apart. We would have seen better years from Wade if he took care of himself.
