Derrick Rose out for season? And Kris Humphries getting sued by Beverly Hills suit store?
Now Derrick Rose isn’t coming back this season, and in another development, Kris Humphries is being sued by a suit shop??
Hoopsvibe’s quick call: The media has been teasing us with the Rose return for months, and Humphries can’t seem to stay out of the media all together.
So even though Derrick Rose was medically cleared to play on February 18th, and reports suggested that he’d be back soon thereafter, as of Friday, he’s not coming back at all. The Bulls organization seems to support any decision Rose makes, and it’s obvious that Rose isn’t comfortable coming back to play at this point in his recovery.
When Coach Thibodeau was asked whether the Bulls should have just said Rose was out the entire year, the Bulls’ coach was indifferent.
"Obviously, you can look back and say that now," Thibodeau said. "but we never felt that way. We knew it was the type of injury that takes time, so you just want to do what you feel is right. We feel like we’ve done that."
Knicks star Carmelo Anthony came to Rose and the Bulls’ aid when he told reporters to "stop rushing Derrick back."
The Bulls are currently 43-35 without Rose and have clinched the playoff spot as the 5th ranked team in the west.
And in other news, Kris Humphries continues to make headlines for all the wrong reasons.
This time, the Nets big man is being sued by a Beverly Hills shop for reportedly breaking a discount deal he received for $46,000 worth of suits. According to reports, Humphries promised the suit shop that if they gave him a discount, he would send other NBA players their way.
Well now the suit shop is saying Humphries hasn’t lived up to his end of the deal.
But according to store representative Scott Hill, when Humphries came into the store with then wife Kim Kardashian, all he had to do was bring in two NBA ballers to browse around and in exchange for doing so, Humphries would be entitled to 30% off. Apparently, Humphries brought no one to the table and still owes the store $6,000.
This is just another example of why store owners and sales people should, in certain circumstances, treat celebrities and athletes like anyone else.
And also, this guy Kris Humphries needs to keep his focus on playing basketball above anything else.
