As many of you know, I’ve covered high school and college basketball since my college days and I spend a lot of time watching mixtapes of top players.
Mixtapes are a collection of highlight-reel plays that are put together to music by dudes that obsessively follow certain players.
And this week’s high school mixtape of Derrick Rose is ridiculous.
Derrick Rose goes off in this mixtape. His athleticism really stands out throughout the highlights as he knifes through defenders, splits defenses and rises for two-handed dunks consistently.
His passing and open-court moves in full speed are also completely absurd. Sometimes people look like they’re just standing in Rose’s way when he’s running at full speed because he gets up the floor so quickly.
I spend a lot of time wishing D Rose was healthy and spend time reminiscing by watching this mixtape from Hoopmixtape.
