The Return of D Rose Episode 5: “Drive”

Episode 5 entitled “Drive” of the D Rose documentary talks about roots.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Rose talks about family first and earning everything he’s ever gotten. 

The Return of D Rose: Episode 5 “Drive” continues to follow the journey of the former NBA MVP’s path back to the top.

Rose is still rehabbing his knee and plotting his return to the game that creates superstars just as quickly as it forgets them. Rose is determined to not be in the later category. His off the court determination and loyalty to family and his hometown of Chicago is pulpable.

“Going through what I went through as a kid all I’m trying to do now is just trying to better myself as a person. I came a long way where in my neighborhood you wasn’t really trying to better yourself you just trying to survive. When I was growing up my thing was just changing my mom’s lifestyle. She’s my mom, my father; I can talk to her about anything. She’s like my friend. Our relationship is definitely strong. Its family first no matter what’s going on, the people that’s going to be with you til’ the end is your family.”
