Norris Cole ruins Derrick Rose on crossover dribble (Video)

Norris Cole Derrick RoseDerrick Rose’s return to NBA action didn’t go as well as he hoped. The Miami Heat went on a massive 17-0 second quarter run against Rose’s Chicago Bulls on opening night Tuesday, and the former MVP even got embarrassed by Norris Cole, who shook him with a sick ankle-breaking crossover.

Now that is why Rose waited several extra months before returning to game action. He had to make sure his knees would be able to withstand getting wrong-footed like that.

On a brighter note, here’s Rose’s first basket of the season, which was a nice drive to the basket and pretty finish:
