Celtics star Jayson Tatum agrees Derrick Rose is a Hall of Famer
In an appearance on the Dan Patrick Show, Rose expressed his belief that he is a Hall of Famer in his own right. While the Detroit Pistons guard argued that some people might not share the same sentiment, he firmly believes the people close to him sees him that way.
Tatum saw Rose’s response and quickly took it to Twitter to tell the former NBA MVP that he’s a Hall of Famer.

Rose won the MVP award in 2011 when he was still with the Chicago Bulls. At 22 years old, he became the youngest player to win the highest individual honor in the league. He gave his hometown hope that he would be the franchise’s next superstar after Michael Jordan. Unfortunately, a series of serious knee injuries prevented him from reaching his full potential.
D-Rose was traded to the New York Knicks in 2016, then signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers the following year. He spent the past 2018-19 season with the Minnesota Timberwolves, with whom he revitalized his career after putting up 18.0 points, 2.7 rebounds and 4.3 assists while shooting 48.2 percent from the field.
Rose signed a two-year deal with the Pistons this offseason.
