Basketball world goes crazy as Derrick Rose drops 50 points

We certainly don’t blame you for not realizing former NBA MVP Derrick Rose was still hooping it up in the Association. A backup for the Minnesota Timberwolves, injuries have derailed the former Chicago Bulls’ first-round pick’s career.

But it sure looks like Rose is in the midst of revitalizing his career. Just ask the Utah Jazz, who saw the veteran drop a career-high 50 points en route to leading Minnesota to a surprising win on Halloween.

It’s only the third time in his career that Rose has reached the 40-point plateau and the first time since March of 2011.

Needles to say, Rose’s turn-back-the-clock performance had sports fans and other NBA stars the world over pretty darn surprised.
