Derrick Rose is an electrifying player, to say the least. In his three seasons with the Chicago Bulls, Rose has become one of the best players in the game. He has also become a regular for ESPN's top 10 plays.
At 6'3", you wouldn't expect Rose to be able to deliver many electrifying dunks, but with his 40-inch vertical, he gets high enough to throw down as hard as any guard. Here are Rose's top 10 plays from his already impressive and highlight-filled career.
If I missed any, put a link down in the comment section. I would love to see it, and I think everyone else would like to see it as well.
Every good player needs to half a half-court shot in their highlight reel. It's not the flashiest of plays, but it's a nice preview of what's ahead.
And they say this kid can't pass? A little crossover and Derrick Rose's court vision equates to pure beauty.
Derrick Rose + Speed > Mike Conley
Derrick Rose + Speed + 40-inch vertical > Zach Randolph
Who else do you want with the ball in their hands in clutch time? Derrick Rose led the league with 47.8 points per 48 minutes of clutch time last year.
Derrick Rose shows off his defense, speed, quickness, agility and his ability to finish—all in one play.
Wasn't a great pass, but I think it made Rose look even better to go up and finish it. I think he got even higher than his 40-inch vertical here.
If only Stacey King announced this one. How many point guards are able to create a dunk like this?
Derrick Rose wants to compete for Dwight Howard's role as Superman. You would think someone who is 6'10" could stop a 6'3" point guard. However, Rose is no ordinary point guard. Get out of this MVP's way.
"I WANNA GO HIGHER!" proclaims Stacey King. "That was an elevator to the penthouse."
Get out of the way, Goran Dragic. You are going to be on a poster in many kid's bedrooms, but for some reason I don't think this is the way you had planned it.
I can't decide if I keep watching it to see Rose dunk or to hear Stacey King go crazy.
