Is there anything more fun to watch in the NBA right now than Derrick Rose carving up a defense?
I’ll come clean: as a guy who grew up in L.A. a Laker fan, watching him do it to the Celtics makes me enjoy it just a little bit more. But when he came to play the Lakers at Staples Center this season, his crossovers and drives twice had Lakers fans — who are pretty jaded to amazing plays — literally gasping. He is stunning to watch in person.
Enjoy the highlights of him carving up the Celtics last night, which was an impressive display no matter who you are a fan of.
