John Paxson says Derrick Rose received unfair criticism for not returning to action this season and believes the Chicago Bulls star will benefit from the work he did on his body during his time away.
Paxson said Rose will continue his rehab work during the offseason and will be an even better player when he returns as a result.
“There’s no question in my mind that the time he spent on his body this past year was the best thing he’s ever done because I think he’s learned that, to compete in an NBA season and absorb the physical contact that he does, what he’s done during this rehab has benefitted him greatly. I think it’s going to make him better and stronger.
“We’re fortunate that we’ve got a kid who is still young and is dedicated to the job and wants to continue being a great player. I think he’s going to come back bigger, stronger, better than ever.”
