This Doesn’t Smell Like a Rose


derrick20roseAccording to the NCAA, a player from the Memphis University Tigers, who only played on the team for the 2007-08 season before leaving (to go to the NBA) had someone else take his SATs in order to get him into college. That description only fits one member of the team, 2009 NBA rookie of the year, Derrick Rose who continues to insist he did nothing wrong.

“I took it, I took it,” he told reporters Friday. However, when pressed if he could remember his score, from a test presumably taken 2 years ago, he couldn’t recall it, adding “I don’t even remember my last report card.”

He probably can’t remember because college athletics are a joke for stars like him and he probably never went to class or took anything difficult. As smooth as Rose is on the court, his logic off it isn’t so good

“I wasn’t worried about anybody saying I didn’t take [the test],” he said. “If that’s the case, somebody would have then said it.” Well, somebody DID say it, the NCAA; yes the person who actually took the test hasn’t come forward, but that doesn’t change the evidence which points directly to him having someone else take the entrance exam for him.

Not that it matters, he used the school as the one-year delaying mechanism that the NBA has required and they used him to make millions of dollars. Win-win.
