Every Monday we will be doing a feature on the best Chicago athlete of the past week called “Chicago Five Star Athlete of the Week”. The athlete selected will be chosen through his good stats, play, or envolvement in the community.
The first ever ChiCitySports.com Five Star Athlete of the Week is…..
Derrick Rose, PG Chicago Bulls.
Rose had an exceptional week last week, including a career high 39 points against the Boston Celtics.
Rose started the week off hot, scoring 26 points in Toronto to give the Bulls a one game lead for the eigth spot in the playoffs. In three must win games starting with Toronto he scored 26, 39, and 27 in the final game in Charollette.
It’s evident that without Rose, the Bulls would be no-where near the playoffs.
In Game one of the Eastern Conference playoffs, Rose flirted with a triple-double. He scored 28 points, dished out 10 assists, and grabbed 7 rebounds. He brought the Bulls back from down 22, to down 7 in the fourth quarter. Although the Bulls lost, Rose tore up the Cavaliers defense.
Congratulations to Derrick Rose for being the first ever ChiCitySports.com Five Star Athlete of the Week.
