Every time he has a big game, or a big moment, it’s only natural to wonder if Derrick Rose, somehow, is on the way back to being the player he was before all the injuries.

But Rose doesn’t wonder these things. The New York Knicks’ point guard is content with where is, and with who he is. And he isn’t chasing the ghost of ‘Vintage Derrick Rose.’

“That vintage is gone, man,” Rose said late Tuesday night. “I told you the question should be: Can I hoop? It shouldn’t be like, ‘He’s playing like his old self. Like, if I can hoop, I can hoop. No matter if I did that when I was younger or now, I can play the game of basketball.”
