Derrick Rose: "It's time for me to retire"
CHICAGO, IL - Former NBA MVP Derrick Rose announces retirement after breaking his orbital bone.

The 26-year-old Chicago Bulls guard bid farewell to the NBA and his fans, announcing his retirement that's effective immediately. "I hate to admit this, but my body could no longer go on," said Rose. "I want to be there for my family while I can still walk and function normally."

The NBA Superstar also told the media that his last shoe for the adidas brand will be released on early 2016.

Several NBA personalities such as NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf and Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg gave their support for the injured Rose. "No doubt about that. But we put the players' health and well-being above everything," said Silver when asked if the Rose's retirement puts a major dent on the league's overall star power.

Joakim Noah was present at the press conference and told the media, "you know [Rose] has had my full support since day one. This isn't the end for him. It's the beginning of another chapter of his lfie." Other NBA players such as LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Kobe Bryant also tweeted their support for their ailing on-court rival.

Derrick Martell Rose is a former American professional basketball player who played for the Chicago Bulls of the National Basketball Association.
