Timberwolves’ Derrick Rose put shoes, jersey and ball from his 50-point game in his son’s room
It was a special performance from Rose, who has undergone four knee surgeries since becoming the youngest MVP in NBA history back in 2011 with his hometown Chicago Bulls.
Timberwolves All-Star big man Karl-Anthony Towns gave the game ball to Rose as the former MVP wiped the tears from his eyes when the game ended. Rose was very emotional about the game considering all he’s been through.
So, where did Derrick Rose put that game ball? The Chicago native not only gave it to his son, P.J, but also gave the little guy the shoes and jersey he wore on that eventful night.
“I kept all of it,” Rose said. “The shoes, the jersey and the game ball. The only thing I didn’t do with the game ball is sign it and date it yet. But I got all of them in my son’s room. He’s gonna keep all that.”

This is pretty cool.
Derrick Rose has been on record saying one of the reasons he didn’t quit the game of basketball after all the injuries he went through is because he wants to set a good example for his son and show him that giving up is never an option in life.
P.J. Rose has three legendary things in his room now, although he’s probably got some other awesome things in there from his famous dad.
