Derrick Rose Biography

Derrick Rose born Derrick Martell Rose, is an American professional basketball player. He was born on October 4, 1988 in Chicago, Illinois, United States, as the youngest son of Brenda Rose after Dwayne, Reggie, and Allan.

He enrolled at Simeon Career Academy in 2003. He played freshmen and JV basketball for the Wolverines. Rose was not allowed on varsity due to a long-standing tradition that head coach Bob Hambric, who had been with the school since 1980 had no freshmen on the varsity team. Hambric softened his stance and allowed the freshman a chance to play on varsity in the state tournament, but Rose declined, wanting the players to get due credit. The next year Hambric retired and Robert Smith was hired, opening the path to varsity. In Rose’s debut, he had 22 points, 7 rebounds and 5 steals over Thornwood High School in a sold-out game filled with college scouts and coaches.

He led the Wolverines to a 30–5 mark while averaging 19.8 points, 5.1 rebounds, 8.3 assists and 2.4 steals but the season ended after a loss in state regionals. Rose’s play garnered him his first national award: a Parade All-American third team spot. During Rose’s junior year in 2006, the Simeon Wolverines broke through and won the Chicago Public League championship held at the United Center, where Rose starred with 25 points and crowd pleasing dunks. The team advanced through the playoffs and earned a berth in the Class AA state championship against Richwoods High School, where a fourth quarter buzzer beater by Richwood forced overtime. The score was knotted at 29 late in the extra period when Rose stole the ball and buried the game winning jumper as time expired, giving Simeon its first state title since the Wilson-led Wolverines won in 1984. Rose was awarded with an All-State Illinois mention, EA Sports All-American Second Team pick and another Parade All-American selection.

Strong efforts were made by Indiana University and in-state University of Illinois to sign Rose to their own programs. Rose accepted a scholarship to play for the University of Memphis Tigers under John Calipari, who recruited him after seeing him play in an AAU game. Rose led the Memphis Tigers to the most wins in NCAA history (a 38-2 record), their first number one ranking in 25 years, and an appearance in the NCAA Championship game.

On April 15, Rose announced he would forgo his final three seasons at Memphis and declared for the 2008 NBA draft. Rose was selected with the first overall pick in the 2008 draft by the Chicago Bulls. In December 2011, Rose signed a five-year contract extension with the Bulls for $94.8 million. On June 22, 2016, Rose was traded, along with Justin Holiday and a 2017 second-round draft pick, to the New York Knicks in exchange for future teammate José Calderón, Jerian Grant and Robin Lopez. On July 25, 2017, Rose signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Rose played the final year of his five-year, $94 million contract in a Knicks uniform. Rose played his first seven seasons in Chicago after the Bulls drafted him No. 1 overall in the 2008 NBA Draft. He won an MVP in 2011, but injuries derailed his career causing a trade to New York in 2016. Rose still makes more than $10 million a year from the 13-year Adidas deal he signed in 2012, but sales of his signature shoes have cratered and he’s been usurped by James Harden and Damian Lillard in marketing for the brand.
