Derrick Rose, who is about to turn 35, arrived in Memphis with his family. He will play for the Grizzlies in the new NBA season. The former “Windy City Rose” chose to wear the No. 23 jersey to play for the new team.
Rose wore No. 23 at the University of Memphis
It’s Rose’s return. Before entering the NBA, Rose studied at the University of Memphis and played for the university’s men’s basketball team. As the main player of the school team at that time, he wore the No. 23 NBA jersey. At that time, players wearing this NBA number were generally basketball players. The core of the team, because this number belongs to Jordan, the god of basketball.
The contract Rose signed with the Grizzlies this time lasts for two years and is worth a total of US$6.5 million. This is far from his peak period, and it cannot be compared with some of the current young people’s big contracts worth hundreds of millions of dollars. But the Grizzlies introduced “Old Rose” and still expect him to play a role. Grizzlies general Ja Morant was too ostentatious last season. There were several incidents of showing off his guns and he was suspended for 25 games. He will not be able to play in the early part of the new season. The arrival of Rose and Smart, who transferred from the Celtics, can make up for the vacancy left by Morant’s absence to a certain extent.
After entering the league, Rose has worn the No. 1, No. 4, and No. 25 NBA jerseys. This time he put on the No. 23 jersey again. More importantly, he is in line with his young self and looks forward to starting a new career in a new team. NBA chapter.
