All eyes were on Derrick Rose at USA Basketball mini-camp this week, and nothing was different as the players wrapped things up with a showcase scrimmage on Friday night.
Rose got the most cheers and the bulk of the attention from the fans in attendance, and at least early on, he did not disappoint.
Rose had a couple of explosive moves to the basket where he looked like the fastest player on the floor in converting layups, but this two-handed dunk showed better than anything the athleticism he possesses, and why we’re all excited to have him back at full strength.
