Rose is having a fantastic season so far playing a role that is not suited to his profile. Can you imagine how good he would play if he did? You should be able to, because the only time he did he dropped 50 points.
Rose's issue is not whether he can be good enough. He proved he can be. Its whether he can stay uninjured for a prolonged period.
