New York Knicks Trade Jose Calderon For Derrick Rose, Swapped Future Hall-of-Famers

Welcome to the New York Knicks, Derrick Rose. This is a bittersweet moment for me because the Knicks desperately need a guard that can penetrate and force a defense to rotate. Drive and dish is a skill that literally every team outside of the Knicks were capable of. Until now.

Having to give up Jose Calderon in order to acquire Rose is heartbreaking. Calderon is the GOATest of all time. One of the best shooters in NBA history and an absolute defensive stopper. Point guards dreaded coming to the garden because they knew Calderon was going to ruin their nights.

Actually, nevermind. Fuck this guy.


Oh, also the Knicks traded Robin Lopez and Jerian Grant and received a 2nd round draft pick from Chicago. Robin Lopez is talented but replaceable and we’ll see what Grant becomes on the Bulls. He could very well turn into a stud but Carmelo is on his last legs and the Knicks don’t have time to rebuild.


Next Stop for the Knicks: Dwight Howard.

Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you’re going to miss Calderon as much as I am. Also, go ahead and give Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on over here at HQ.
