The story of Derrick Rose is one every NBA fan knows well. After becoming the youngest MVP of All-Time, and leading the Bulls to the top of the East standings, Derrick Rose suffered a series of heartbreaking injuries that derailed his career.

Years later, after multiple seasons of doubt, Rose appears to be finding his footing.

Last night's game-winner was just another spectacular moment of this comeback story, and it was truly something special. With the game tied at 103, Rose dribbles up with seconds left on the clock and knocks down a spinning, fadeaway jumper.

After the game, a clearly pumped up Rose made this comment in light of his game-winner:

It was just two points of a 21-points performance, but it was an encouraging and heart-warming sign that he is still capable of doing some remarkable things on the basketball court.

Fortunately, this has been a theme throughout the season for Derrick. He's been an essential member of the Pistons so far this season, helping lead them to a 10-14 record as he averages 16 points, 5.8 assists, and 2.1 rebounds on 48% shooting.

The Rose has certainly blossomed, it seems.
