Re: “'Reform' ain't right for Chicago, and maybe Derrick Rose isn't either

"If later on they spend 30 years as gimps but saved their money they can afford live-in nurses."
That may be true for NFL players but Derrick Rose is a basketball player. Name one NBA Hall of Famer who is limping around. Larry Bird, Michael Jordan, Kareem, etc etc, are all getting around fine after long careers. Players who suffered serious injuries like Penny Hardaway or Grant Hill might not be playing in the NBA any more but they're not worried about being able to walk. Derrick Rose doesn't risk being maimed for life playing basketball, the only thing he risks is not being able to play basketball at a top level, which he maybe has 3-5 more years left to do so. If he would have said "I'm thinking about the end of the season, the playoffs," that would be one thing. The Bulls are not paying him $100 million to think about whether he will be able to dunk at 48.
