Derek Rose Will Bang it On Ya Pop!
Next years Rookie of the Year (yeah I’m calling it) highlight mix (turn the sound down if at work).
Yesterday, I had a conversation with Scoop Jackson. During, Derek Rose of the Memphis Tigers became the main topic of the chat. Scoop is from Chicago and witnessed first hand how bad this young fella truly is.
His athleticism is just ridiculous. If Kevin Durant is Smooth Jazz, Rose is Hardcore Hip Hop.
If you haven’t checked him out, you won’t have to. He might dunk out of the screen right into your living room. Seriously though, Rose will be all over the TV as college basketball gets into full swing.
I’ll be heading up to Madison Square Garden to cover the Semi-Finals or Finals of the 2K Coaches for Cancer Classic (Nov 17-18). I can’t wait to see this kid.
Oh, this cat is a point guard. He was MVP of the Memphis Regional.During our talk Scoop had this to say about “Pooh”:
“He has the athleticism of Le Bron James, the handle of Jason Kidd and the tenacity on defense of Tayshaun Prince.”
High praise, but after you see his game, you will not doubt…trust.
Scoop wrote a nice piece on the opening of the NBA season.
Pooh, presumably didn’t make the piece because he’s not yet in the NBA.
Here’s another on a Jordan Experience Scoop Jax had recently.
