Derrick Rose’s AWOL act on Monday night may have put his New York Knicks future in doubt, with fans everywhere wondering where the heck he went. Joakim Noah claims to have spoken to the strange point guard and that he’s alright, but didn’t really elaborate.
Thankfully, our producers have located the runaway bride.. living Life on the infamous Giants boat.
This disappearing act naturally created some pregame chaos last night prior to tipoff against the New Orleans Pelicans, who eventually took down the crumbling Knicks 110-96 in quite an uninspiring game of Madison Square Garden basketball.
And per Adrian Wojnarowski, it wasn’t until after the loss that the Knicks even got confirmation on Rose at all..
After failing to inform New York Knicks officials of his intentions to skip Monday night’s game at Madison Square Garden, Derrick Rose’s future with the franchise has become increasingly uncertain.
Knicks officials didn’t hear from Rose that he was OK until after an embarrassing loss to New Orleans, a confirmation that sources said began the next conversation within the organization: What do they do with Rose now?
In the aftermath of going AWOL at The Garden, Knicks officials need to further determine Rose’s passion to return to the team and continue playing.
Rose has put into peril his short-term role – with the possibility of a suspension, sources said – and the longer-term chances to land a lucrative contract extension with the Knicks in July, league sources told The Vertical.
