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


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.
