Kevin Durant: ‘Derrick Rose Is Looking Like An All-Star’

Publish date:


Kevin Durant has made some bold comments about Derrick Rose. The Brooklyn Nets star is sidelined right now, but he still notices the things happening in the league at this moment. After the first week of the competition, one guy is showing a great game and KD has noticed that.

Detroit Pistons point guard Derrick Rose is having a vintage season with the Motor City, posting great numbers that make the Pistons fans dream about the team’s chances to make the playoffs this campaign. Durant stated Rose is playing like a star while talking at the Forbes Under 30 Summit in Detroit on Tuesday:

Via Branden Hunter of the Michigan Chronicle:

“I don’t know about the Pistons,” Durant laughed. “I love the Pistons and D-Rose is looking like an All-Star. But we will see. It’s a long year.”

Rose is posting very good numbers right now with his 21.5 points and 5.3 assists for the Pistons while shooting 54.7% FG, 50.0% from deep and 93.8% from the free-throw line. Rose hasn’t been an All-Star since 2012, so imagine how a great story this would be if he gets the call for the All-Star game.
