When famed Chicago Bulls‘ point guard Derrick Rose went down on his knee tearing his ACL, that effected us all. Apparently it effected some more than other, as a self-proclaimed long-time Bulls fan is throwing a lawsuit at Rose for making him an over-weight, emotional wreck.
In one of the most bizarre and ridiculous cases, according to HipHop365 a 25-year-old man from Peoria, Illinois, Matthew Thompson, is suing Rose because his absence made Thompson sad and since he was sad I assume he resorted to cheeseburgers and buckets of ice cream, therefore gaining weight. It’s Rose’s fault for getting hurt, and it’s his fault for getting Thompson sad and it’s Rose’s fault for Thompson gaining weight from the sadness. Let’s all blame Derrick Rose here.
A 25-year-old from Peoria Illinois man filed a lawsuit Thursday against Chicago Bulls Superstar Derrick Rose. Matthew Thompson, a self-described long-time Bulls fan, and electrician claims Rose missing the entire 2012-2013 NBA regular season has caused him to have mental breakdowns and emotional distress, which ultimately led to obesity issues.
According to reports, Thompson claims Rose displayed negligent behavior by refusing to return to the court, despite having been cleared by team doctors. He blames his health issues on the MVP’s refusal to return.
This case is ludicrous. If this lawsuit is actually taken seriously with strong consideration, I may as well sue Kobe Bryant, Greg Oden, David Stern, heck the whole Toronto Raptors organization for not making the playoffs since 2007-2008.
I know there are thousands of Bulls fans out there sad and disappointed that Rose didn’t come back this season, some probably far more depressed. I’d like to thank all of you for keeping your sanity, coping with the situation in some way or another and not throwing insane lawsuits like the one Thompson is throwing. This is perhaps one of the most insane lawsuits in sports and will not go any further. I rest my case.
