Derrick Rose took to social media and sent an important message to his fans and followers.
Rose said he doesn’t want people to “idolize” him since his story is very unique.
“Please don’t idolize me. I’m not your typical hooper/celeb or whatever you want to call it. Find out who you are, master something and find a way to express whatever you’ve mastered. It’s all about your perception.
Once you do that I SWEAR it’s easier to see this game everyone is playing. Don’t be apart of the magic show. Look away! Spurious love please pls stay away!!!! Thanks for all the Gday wishes. Stay blessed King & Queens,” Rose wrote on his Instagram account.
Rose is the youngest MVP in NBA history and one of the most popular athletes in the league.
