Rose never left his own team to joined a team of 2 other all stars in their primes. He could easily rack up rings like donuts if he did the same.

Cool. Say this as much as you like, but it doesn't change a thing. Lebron is a two time champ while Derrick Rose is not.

I have to bite.

Dude, Rose has barely scratched the surface of his potential and he hasn't hit his prime yet.

Lebron is 3 or 4 years older and has accomplished these achievements in his prime and AFTER joining a superteam.

You can spin it any way you want, but Bulls fans see through the fake Bullshit of Lebron and his fans...

We won't be buying our way to cheap titles like Lequeen has done

Lebron James as The Undertaker

Derrick Rose as Jeff Hardy

This basically tells the story of Derrick Rose's career. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_ANV_KiB9Q

Until LeBron has to come back from ACL tear, then we'll judge him. Having total confidence coming back from an injury isn't cowardly. It's smart.

As it stands LeBron has sat out for fake injuries, and blamed times he's quit on his team IN THE PLAYOFFS while actually being on the floor for the following reasons:

Delonte West banged his mom
Fake elbow tendinitis
Rashard Lewis banged his g/f

LeBron sets the bar for being a coward. It isn't even close.

How exactly does his mom having sex make him a coward? What does one have to do with the other?

Sorry to brake it to you bro, but your mom has sex too.

Rose is after all expected to carry the weight of a franchise, and his hometown city ... and a legacy left by the greatest to ever lace them up. That's major pressure. But he wants to own it, and live up to the legend. He wants to live up to expectations.

LeCoward ran from that shit with the quickness. Even when they had a good enough cast to compete and win. It just took more from him on a individual level, LeBron didn't want to have to own up to those expectations. Decided he needed massive amounts of help to finally get it done. That's why he literally said he didn't want to shoulder the burden of scoring, and needed a guy who could score and close. Enter buddying up to D-Wade. A guy who knew how to win.

Needed a big brother / daddy figure to help guide him as well. Kind of pathetic actually. Showed a complete lack of heart or fortitude. He admitted to essentially stacking the deck so things would be as easy as possible.

LeBron didn't prove himself with the tools he was given. Persevering with mental toughness, and eventually knocking down the wall. Contrived, not earned.

Normally you're pretty intelligent, how on earth can you be resorting to this stupidity for critiquing a professional athlete for being safe with his body which earns him his riches for his family?

Especially if said athlete wants to have a prosperous career going forward. We've seen that horror movie of franchise, HOF caliber players rushing back from injury ... re-injuring themselves and never being the same player again many times before.

Come on, you're smart dude. Use your brain. I know you have to hate Rose because you're a Heat fan. But right now you're acting like one of those insecure LeBron jockers. The people who got on Rose's nuts for not coming back are stupid as hell.
Not going to get into another "The Decision" debate, but sitting on the bench and eating candy while you're been cleared to play is extremely cowardly.

Leading your team in point, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks isn't quitting. Where were his teammates? Only if he had a Pippen or a Rodman...

You're full of it. Guy wasn't confident in his surgically repaired knee to play. That's cautious, not cowardly.

No where to you is what LeChicken Shit did cowardly? Bolting on the Cavs after empty promises, and a roster good enough to win 2x 60+ win seasons? Passing off his failures to fans having to "wake up to the same lives they did before"?

Blaming elbow tendinitis why he couldn't perform up to snuff in the playoffs, when he seemed perfectly healthy in other games.

Having his people leak out Rashard Lewis banged his fiance, as an excuse to why he was playing poorly in the 2011 Finals.

Guy is a prime example of a coward.

Rose may end up as the only MVP to never make the HOF, but then again he is arguably the worst MVP of all time so it's no surprise.

But he played though.

Sorry, but you're gonna have to just accept it that playing and making excuses while healthy is still better than not playing at all while healthy. There's no way around it. It is what it is. Rose was the healthiest player on that Bulls team and the only one who refused to even suit up.

If you're gonna defend Rose for not playing while healthy because he simply didn't feel like it, you don't get to say anything about players who at least stepped on the court. You just don't.
