Derrick Rose Announces Retirement

CHICAGO - The basketball world was shocked when NBA superstar and Chicago Bulls point guard, Derrick Rose, announced his retirement from the game of basketball. He held a press conference that was supposed to be for a shoe endorsement, but right after the interview, he announced his exit from playing ball.

After two years battling injuries with both of his knees, the former MVP has finally called it quits. "I have to think about my future, my kid, you know," he told the media earlier today. "Nobody wants to grow old on a wheelchair."

Bulls fans are still in awe with the announcement of their headlining superstar. Head coach Tom Thibodeau reassured the fans that they'll still have something to look forward to with their two towers, Pau Gasol and Joakim Noah, leading the way for the Bulls.

"I respect his decision, but he could've at least consulted us, the Bulls organization about his retirement. I understand how he feels and I'm sure all the players wish him nothing but good luck in his future endeavors," Tom Thibodeau said in a phone interview with ESPN.

LeBron James and Kobe Bryant told reporters that they've already talked to Rose after the announcement.

Other NBA players such as Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, his teammate Pau Gasol and Ricky Rubio have all taken to twitter to voice out their opinions regarding the Chicago-raised baller's retirement. All wished him well.
