Thunder’s Reggie Jackson has no idea how to guard Derrick Rose (VIDEO)

Oct 24, 2013, 1:12 AM EDT

This is a prime example of how deadly Derrick Rose can be off the dribble with his speed and ability to change direction at a moment’s notice.

Reggie Jackson of the Thunder simply has no idea what to do with Rose here, and gets completely turned around before being simply stopped in his tracks.

The fact that Rose was fouled before he could score once he got past his defender matters little. Just being able to freeze an NBA-level talent like that with such grace and ease is part of what makes Rose such a special player.

    Notwithstanding this one play, I thought Reggie Jackson and co. did a great job defending Rose. Through 3 quarters against Jackson, Rose was 3-12 for 13 points, 4 assists and 4 turnovers.

    Jackson didn’t play in the 4th quarter when the Bulls left their starters in against the Thunder bench – that’s where Rose improved his line to 26/6.

    (Jackson was 5-12 for 14 points and 6 assists thru 3)

    Honestly, I really don’t care about what D-Rose does in the regular season. He’s a terrific talent and I expect him to put up MVP-caliber numbers this year. The only thing I want to see is what he does in the playoffs.

    As long as Rose stays healthy we’re going to see a lot of that.

    looks like d-rose changed a bit. he’s lacking a little bit of bounce. before the injury, i think he could have slammed it home on this one.

      Well see when the season start because he did said he jumping 5 inches higher and he put on some extra weigh so he should be even stronger to the basket

      Might be right. He was getting blocked a lot in this game.

    No no no no…. This is a “prime example” of why D Rose is going to either get injured again or have a very short career. He’s still playing recklessly and putting his knees into very vulnerable positions under tremendous amounts of stop and go force. This is man reminds me of a teen with a muscle car. Accident waiting to happen. Better hope he matures and learns to pace himself before the next disaster,
