Felipe Melecio was the managing editor for the blog Pathological Hate. He believes that math is your friend and numbers can be fun, especially when it comes to baseball. Keep tabs on all his knee-jerk reactions on Twitter:

This is part 2 of the Derrick Rose Saga. The irony of a superstar with the last name of Rose getting hurt at the Rose Garden in Portland. The hope and the promise all come to a screeching halt when a superstar and his advisors make all the decisions.

Rose had every excuse to not play after rehabbing after the first knee injury, we speculate how he spent his summer vacation in 2013 (which he will be rudely reminded of later this fall when he goes to court to fight a lawsuit against him), we quickly breakdown the games he played the following season … before injuring his other knee against the Portland Trail Blazers, after only 10 games of action.
