Video: Derrick Rose practices social distancing by locking kids out of their playhouse
Detroit Pistons veteran point guard Derrick Rose seems to be in high spirits in the midst of the global coronavirus pandemic. With the NBA suspending the season for at least a month, guys like Rose have been handed the opportunity to spend some extra time with their families. We’re just not sure if his kids are having as much fun as dad:
Rose’s kids look seriously frustrated about not being allowed in their own playhouse, and dad appears to be taking joy in the same. It’s all good, though, as we all know that this is just Rose playfully teasing his kids. After all, it’s nice to be on the other side every once in a while.
All jokes aside, though, it’s nice to see Rose all smiles and genuinely enjoying his time with his family. If there’s one silver lining to this pandemic, it’s the fact that we are all given the opportunity — we have no choice, really — but to bond and reconnect with our families at home.
Rose, a three-time All-Star and former Rookie of the Year winner, was having an outstanding year for the Pistons prior an injury he suffered weeks before the hiatus. The 31-year-old held averages of 18.1 points (on 49.o percent shooting), 2.4 rebounds, 5.6 assists, and 0.8 steals before the suspension of the season.
After this season, Rose still has one more year on his current deal with Detroit, and then he will become an unrestricted free agent at the age of 32.
