Derrick Rose Proud to Have Inspired New Derrick Rose Rule

One of the new rules in the NBA’s proposed collective bargaining agreement would give young, successful players a chance to earn more money. The rule is named after Bulls point guard Derrick Rose who has won Rookie of the Year and MVP. He’s also made two All-Star teams, and he was named first-team All-NBA in his first three years. Rose is proud to have inspired the rule.

“It’s unbelievable,” Rose told “The rule, I guess it fits me, for what I achieved at a young age and hopefully, there will be a couple more people like me.”

The rule allows players who have made the All-Star team twice, won MVP, or were named first-team All-NBA in their first four years in the league to earn 30% of their team’s salary cap in their second contract. 5% may not seem like much, but the players will take it, and it’s a nice way to reward players who outperform their rookie deals.
