Addressing those who doubt his ability to persevere sans Tom Thibodeau, Timberwolves guard Derrick Rose said multiple times today, “Kill yourself.”

Rose:

I’m glad Rose apologized. Those words were jarring and insensitive when presented to a mass audience. They affected people in ways he probably never initially considered.

It’s good that he reflected now and addressed it.
