Any links to these 'stupid interviews'? I guess I've never heard him talk, now that I think of it.

Not everyone is a good test taker. I got a 1400 on the new SAT, which is the equivalence of roughly 930 on the old one. Then again, I never claimed I was a genius.

Basketball is not quantum physics....half of the NBA/NFL/MLB are flaming idiots on a scholastic level.

Chris Paul, Chauncey Billups, and Steve Nash aren't necessarily geniuses off court b/c they are on court, conversely.

I don't think an inability to do good at written tests means you're an idiot. Some people are better at being hands on while some people are great at written tests, but are stupid when it comes to hands on.

^ Go Getter, I am quite certain those 3 are much smarter than Derrick Rose. But that said, none of them have his athletic/physical gifts (and that can make up for a lot of what's missing upstairs). Anyways, I think this is much ado about nothing (at least for now). His "stupidity" hasn't hindered his play thus far.

820 is horrible considering it was the new SAT.

I thought he was just shy, but he might just be dumb.

This is exactly it... They only test you on a few areas of your brain. If there was a test for sports, running, body control, strength etc I am sure Rose would ace it.

I got a 1530 on the new one as well. But then I got a 27 on the ACT.

What is an average score on the new SAT? It's out of 2400 correct?

Basketball is NOT something you need a high IQ for....you can be trained....it doesn't take higher brain functions.

My uncle (RIP) was certified crazy (schitzo)...all he would do is smoke weed and laugh at God knows what all day...but he was a mechanical genius...he had cars lined up in front of the house because of his skill.

I believe that Rose a typical spoiled athlete that let people do things to placate/enable him to shirk his academic responsibilities...who knows if he would have scored if he took the test legitimately?

At any rate the SAT does not equal on court success...many HOF basketball players are plumb dumb.

An average score is 1500 out of 2400, 3 sections Reading, Math,& Verbal.

But the main thing colleges look at is the combined score of Reading & Math.

Where do you guys get that many basketball players are stupid? Some might be, but not all are.

That's right. I forgot he's my age, so he was in the first year of the new SAT. But seriously, don't you get like 200-300 points just for putting your name down? If the 820 is on the new SAT, that's the equivalence of roughly 550 on the old one. On the old SAT, wasn't the minimum to get a sports scholarship 700?
