Nobody is talking about it but, D. Rose may NO LONGER be the Franchise.

Maybe its because everyone is still in shock. Let me make this very clear, I wish nothing but the best in his recovery. I know he is young and will bounce back but lets be real, he may not regain full motion/strength in that knee. Michael Redd was considered Milwaukee's franchise player and now he is a very skilled, very talented role player for the Phoenix Suns.

I also feel the same about the Knicks rookie R. Shumpert.

Look, I'm not an athlete but i'm in ok shape, have some but used to be very flexible. I've been a dare devil all my life. I've participated in sports, rode a couple of bulls, horses and I lift 5gal pails of paint for a living, and had never broken, sprained, torn any bones or muscles until 5 months ago when I was playing beach volleyball. I tore my ACL on my right knee, my PT says he is amazed at how fast i've been able to regain almost all motion/bending of my knee. He noticed that from the second time i went to PT 5 days after surgery. My leg strength is far from being what it used to be, I can't go up and down ladders without hurting, I hurt everyday, my foot is still numb and it will take some time to regain nerve sensation, I hope. He says that its not normal for anyone to ever be the same after that type of injury. So I'm not trying to be a debbie downer but I'm trying to be realistic. I'm working my butt off trying to get back to myself but i feel the difference.

Yes, everyone is different but, one thing is for sure, He will not be the same explosive player he used to be. Sorry, I hope i'm wrong but I'm just keeping it real.

It will be 2 years before he reaches whatever level he will return to. I think he will be able to regain 95% of his abilities due to his youth and the top notch rehab he will have available to him.

i don't think this has been talked about because there's no way of telling how he'll rebound. Amare was supposed to lose his explosiveness after his surgery and he came back from it. Kidd came back from his surgery too.

we'll only know the answer to this next year. the guy may surprise.

i think you're totally right, and those were the dreaded microfracture surgeries. Baron Davis had a torn ACL in college, but was still a super explosive pg as a young'n before back issues. Chris Paul had a torn meniscus a couple years ago, and Blake Griffin had a broken kneecap, and both have returned with much explosiveness. while those aren't acl injuries, guys like Wes Welker and Willis McGahee have returned just as explosive after devastating injuries that took out theire ACLs and MCLs at the same time.

obviously every case is different, but i think the last person you wanna compare Derrick Rose to is any of us on this board... dude is 6'2 with a 6'8 wingspan, a 40" vertical, and ran 3/4 the court in 3.05 secs before he was even drafted. those aren't average "good athlete" stats, they are freak of nature stats. add to that he'll have top-notch surgeons and rehab, and consider his lauded work ethic, and i think it's hard to compare the type of recovery one can have.

You're spot on. With all that's available to him, he'll stand the best chance at recovery.

You really rode bulls and broncs and 'never' had a broken or sprained or bruised anything? Wow, I've been covering and reporting on rodeo for 30 years and have never seen anyone with such luck, good for you.

As for D Rose,only time will tell

I think he'll be fine, and his game will adapt. That jump stop is ridiculously hard on the body and he'll just have to take that out of his repertoire.

agreed, now he'll focus more on getting a jump shot than driving and having layups as his 2nd weapon (kind of like what Manu is doing now). he'll focus more on assists too.

I had an ACL playing soccer and honestly feel that I was better after it and full recovery.

Problem withe D rose is that his game is not ment for long term sucess. At some point he needs to change his game. This hopping around like a deer and throwing himself at wall of defenders is just not going allow for a even a 7 years of productivity. He needs to learn how to use his quickness like Tony and Chris Paul.

Sad Fact is he is more likely to be the next Gayle Sayers, a Chicago sports icon who burned fast and bright. Though I doubt he gets in the Hall of fame like Sayers

I think he'll rebound well from a ACL tear...its the micro-fracture surgery which is worst.

Amare is an example of you being able to bounce back from knee problems.

Rose should work on less drives and more mid range jumpers.
