Derrick Rose is an NBA veteran who has achieved a lot in his 13-year career, but it seems Rose isn’t about to end anytime soon.
Speaking to Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News, Rose said he wanted to retire the “Tom Brady” avenue.
“I’ll try to do this thing to Tom Brady,” said Rose. “Play as long as possible, make sure that I really take care of my body. And make sure that I play with joy. “
This quote is for Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, who is currently 44 years old and is in his 22nd season in the NFL.
Rose still has a long way to go in achieving Brady’s career longevity, but after 13 years of career and just 33 years, Rose certainly has a lot left to do.
For his career, Rose has played 651 games, averaging 18.4 points and 5.5 assists per game over the course of his career. Rose has also won a number of personal awards by being named on three All-Star teams, becoming Rookie of the Year in 2008-09 and MVP in 2010-11.
In five games this season, Rose still delivers one goal to his current team, the New York Knicks. He averages 13.8 points, 3.2 assists and 1.0 steals per game.
Rose’s production helped lead the Knicks to a 4-1 record, which is ranked top spot in the Eastern Conference.
