Derrick Rose’s bank shot has been money in 2015

SHARE Derrick Rose’s bank shot has been money in 2015

For much of his career, Bulls franchise guard Derrick Rose has been really difficult to stop. Even through a number of knee surgeries, he finds a way to make guarding him a daunting task.

It used to be that Rose would would power himself to the rim with ridiculous bounce and leaping ability, like so.

After his injuries, he’s been having to find new ways to put the basketball in the hoop. This year, his shot hasn’t hit the bottom of the net often, but when it does, it’s usually after it hits the backboard first. Rose is becoming a bank-shot master with his knees effectively being as sold as jello.

As long as Rose can add the deadly floater to his repertoire, he’ll continue to be a headache for others to guard. He still has those handles after all.
