Default Report: Derrick Rose to pay for 6 month old funeral

Sad set of circumstances, nice to see someone step up

Chicago Bulls' point guard Derrick Rose has reportedly made a kind gesture, offering to help pay for the funeral of 6-month-old Jonylah Watkin, who was shot multiple times by a gunman on Monday as her father changed her diaper on the front seat of his minivan in Chicago.

According to NBC Chicago, a Watkin family spokesman said Rose made the offer, but the three-time All-Star has not publicly confirmed it.

Rose has been sidelined all season after sustaining a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during Game 1 of the first round of the NBA playoffs against the Philadelphia 76ers on April 28.

Rose had surgery on his injured knee in May, and his return could be imminent.

Referring to his injured knee, Rose said, "I think I can do everything. It's just me having the confidence to do it, just me feeling normal."

Jordan never delivered like this to my knowledge. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Rose >>> MJ

D-Rose is a Chicagoan for life. Don't ever make any trade proposals involving Chicago's finest.

Funny story, but back in 2006 my grandmother died. I told my local news station that John Travolta offered to pay for the services. Of course he never made the offer, but when reached for comment he confirmed my story with the action ten news. 4 days later, his representatives sent us a check for $13k.

If true that's pretty interesting, you ever tried anything like where it didn't work backfired on you?

Rose should be more popular in chicago than MJ. He's not a douche who doesn't care about the fans like MJ was. Rose is a great guy
