Derrick Rose will successfully overcome his injury and be an All-Star this season

Cohen’s Opinion: Convinced

Sure, it was just one preseason game and you never know when an injury will flare up again, but Rose resembled his old self over the weekend when he tallied 13 points and three assists in 20 minutes against the Pacers.

He was explosive and didn’t look at all terrified to slash, dash and cross his defenders when attacking the rim.

Rose is extra motivated to silence his detractors, who criticized him incessantly last season for choosing not to play after being cleared by doctors.
