You know who you probably don't want to piss off? Derrick Rose. As the old saying goes, "You've got to watch out for the quiet ones." And D-Rose is a pretty quiet, mellow dude. So if you piss him off, you've gotta do something pretty bad. And you can probably expect some retribution as a result of it.
That's the boat the Indiana Pacers find themselves in right now. Last night, they handed Rose's Chicago Bulls their first home loss of the season. And, afterwards, they celebrated on the court. According to Rose, they celebrated a little too much for their own good over a regular-season win in late January.
"I will never forget how they celebrated just from winning this game," Rose said after the game. "I can't wait to play them again."
Gulp. If we're the Pacers right now, we're shutting the F up and getting back into Rose's graces ASAP by sending him a box of gummy bears or something. 'Cause, like we said, that is one guy you most definitely do not want to piss off. Especially when you might have to meet up with him in the playoffs.
