    You said "Rose may or may not be the best penetrator of the bunch." Rose was slicing up defenses the entire game! Even had rondo running around in circles at one! I just want to know why you hate Derrick Rose so much, you evil, ignorant person. If your organically not a basketball enthusiast, then I think there's really nothing more I can do??

    Peterson, why do you write about basketball if you know nothing about it? Here's something to help you out....

    Peterson, are you stupid or something?! Did you not see the blue vs. white exhibition? Derrick Rose should of been the MVP. He might of not scored the most points, but the player who scores the most points isn't always the best player (if you understood basketball you would know that). Rose scored when it mattered and had the best overall stat line. Durant turned the ball over too many times. Rose garnered the most ohhhs & ahhhs, had the most spectacular plays, scored at the most crucial moments (e.g. offensive rebound w/ the buzzer beater at the end of the half), and showed almost the entire repertoire (dunks, fast breaks, drives, floaters, even threes! U name it, it was showcased by Rose). Rose may not have the personality of lebron james, but theres no denying his transcendent God-like skill. So stop with the kevin durant hype. You just hate the greatness that is Derrick Rose!

    This is more than basketball, this is about sports in general. I politely ask for your attention here for a few minutes.
