I respect all the regular posters here but upgraydedd might have something here. Im not saying Rose should totally change his game but great players find ways to "re-invent" themselves by learning new tricks of the game.
Kobe has not relied solely on his athletic ability the past 6-7 years now. He has learnned how to post up, shoot over defenders, draw contacts, set teaamtes etc. Same with Payton, Cassell etc. who posted up their guys. Tim Hardaway learned how to shoot....
When I think of fast players, Rose, Westbrook, Rondo, Wade CP3,Lawson etc all have been injured lately.
Then the oldies who are not super fast like Andre Miller, Fisher are still playing after 17+ seasons. Heck even the last 6 years of Jason Kidd (and Nash), he wasn't relying on his speed.
Rose has developed his outside shot. He is bigger and stronger than most PGs. If Rose gets back and God forbid he gets injured again. Now what?
