Default Can the Wolves win a title now that they have Rose?

Former MVP and Bran's strongest competition in the monstrous eastern conference for many years.

Can they win the title now that they have Bran's biggest competition?

If you're going to troll at least do it with some form of wit or cleverness. This is the kind of pathetic shit an 11 year old would make. I know that's about as far as you were able to mature mentally, but still. Being bored at the welfare office waiting for your appointment is no excuse for this kind of fukkery.

What OP is leaving out is that Rose is broken down physically and mentally due to playing in the eastern conference his entire career, so he's nowhere near the MVP player he once was. Then again, moving to the west he'll have historically easy paths to the Finals like Curry has, so it's hard to say.

What this square ass loser was expecting -

'LOL Bran's stiffest competition to date would be lucky to make the west semis '

'Shows how easy Bran had it his whole career in the Least'

In reality -

'You have nothing to say that contributes so you say some stupid shit, get a job dumbass'

How does it feel, justin? Was a few bills worth your threads going from a consistent 5 pages to 5 replies? Was it worth going from everyone quotong your posts with rolling and clapping smileys to nothing? Was it worth the biggest part of your life, waking up and going to sleep at night knowing you were on your way to an ISH legend to falling off worse than IT did? Was it worth replicating Your real life on here, becoming a loser in the most special, biggest part of your life?

Literally every NBA player says Rose is still a great player. Everybody who actually knows basketball and doesn't follow the mainstream media narrative which loves to create 'fallen star' stories respects Derrick Rose.

Wolves got him because he is a winner, he's always been a winner, first in the draft, MVP leading a team of talentless workers to the first seed, took prime Lebron to the brink of defeat in 2015 playoffs AFTER knee injury. Still top 5 slasher in the league, still top 5 (if not THE) fastest guard in the league, but more importantly he has the winning mentality and knows how to perform when it really matters. He will put the media hacks and their sheep in their place. Just watch.

Wolves still have to make the playoffs and they aren't very good without Butler and a tough schedule ahead

That's a lot of words for a good laugh. Anyone who's watched Rose for the last 3 years knows he's washed up. Can't even make a 3 point shot anymore.

Literally every player asked about him who knows him has said it. Better?

Seems only those who don't know shit about him personally are the ones that just go with the conventional wisdom that he sucks because hes not a great spot up shooter and his metrics at a team like the Knicks.

The intangibles Rose brings will show in the playoffs. He has always been a big game performer. Hilarious how people around here think they are the smart ones and Thibs is the idiot

He couldn't when he won MVP too. Its actually refreshing to have someone with a different approach to the game than spot up 3pt chucking. And if washed up means top 5 slasher and fastest guards in the league, then there are many who wish they were washed up

If PeroAntic actually has watched Rose play and he thinks this nonsense he "literally" knows nothing about basketball and should just stop watching. Ever since he tore his knee apart every single team he's been on has played better when he's off the floor. He can't shoot, he can't play defense, he can't finish (his % between 0-3 feet has just been garbage since since he hurt his knee), and he's prone to 3 or 4 stupid plays a game. (at least) He just has a very poor BBIQ and has never learned how to play any other way than he always had growing up and as a young star. Maybe he's not the athlete he once was, but he's still athletic enough that he could be effective out there for a team if he had a capable enough BBIQ to adapt to a different system. Also, stop talking about Rose in the 2015 playoffs like he played well. He average 21.7 points on 22.5 shots vs the Cavs in their series. That's atrocious. Jimmy Butler was obviously the best Bull in that series.

A top 5 slasher with no lateral movement. Dream on...
