A lot has been made out of Derrick Rose’s recent controversial comments about “life after basketball.

“I think a lot of people don’t understand that … when I sit out it’s not because of this year.

“I’m thinking about long term. I’m thinking about after I’m done with basketball. Having graduations to go to, having meetings to go to, I don’t want to be in my meetings all sore or be at my son’s graduation all sore just because of something I did in the past. [I’m] just learning and being smart.”

Here’s our friend and collaborator Rachel DeMita‘s two cents on the topic.

Do you agree with her or are you more on Stephen A. Smith’s side.
