If you were listening closely, you just heard a mass of people from the Chicago area scream in excitement as former MVP Derrick Rose says he is healthy, proclaiming himself to be ’100%’ in a recent interview during his promotional tour in the Philippines.
Rose, who we’ve actually seen in a one-on-one battle during the tour looked very good in the short video, though, it wasn’t NBA action obviously, which we’re all waiting to see.
Either way, Rose says he’s ready and is feeling great.
Per CSN Chicago:
“I think I am a 100 percent,” Rose said. “I’m doing almost everything. I’m squatting, running, lifting almost every other day, just being back on the court after you have an ACL injury, you’re kind of hesitant at first about how you step, what way you should step, learning how to run, accelerate, accelerate while you run and while you’re slowing down. For me, I’m reacting right now where all I have to think about is if I have to get to a spot, I’m going to get there no matter what. It kind of feels good having that feeling again.”
