During this period last year, Derrick Roose had left Cleveland Cavaliers and was thinking about retirement because of not being able to seriously hurt the left ankle. Today is very much ahead and Rose now has a stellar season with Minnesota Timberwalls.
Denver Nagats Point Protector Isaiah Thomas, who was a team mate with Rose in Cleveland, is inspirational.

Entrying Saturday, Derrick Rose averages an average of 19.4 points, 3.6 reimbursements and 4.6 times the support for Timberwalls. The former league is shooting 48.2% of the MVP field, 47.6% from ARK and 85.1% from the free-throw line.
Rose, who has done four knee surgery, is still one of the fastest players in the game, but now he has a 3-point game to go with driving ability. Rose is the best 3-point shooter in the NBA since playing a 50-point game against Utah Jazz.
3-Point shooting from Halloween:
Derrick Rose: 25 to 44 (56.8%)
David Booker: 26 to 87 (29.9%)
Kevin Durant: 43 to 43 (30.2%)
Clay Thompson: 32 to 94 (34.0%)
James Harden: A score of 121 to 40 (33.1%)
JJ Radik: 91 of 91 (33.0%)
Joe Inglés: 27 (35.1%) of 77
Stephen Curry: 14 out of 33 (42.4%)

Isaiah Thomas has recently returned from arthroscopic hip surgery in March. There is no timetable for returning to court, but Rose is the only kind of success in Minnesota. Like Roses, Tom Cohen is being coached again, Thomas is reconnected with Michael Cole in Denver in Malone.
