An NBA Player Admits He Lost Respect for Derrick Rose When He Didn't Play in the Playoffs

An NBA Player Admits He Lost Respect for Derrick Rose When He Didn't Play in the PlayoffsTim Fuller/USA Today Sports

Wizards guard Bradley Beal might want to watch himself the next time he's on the same court as Derrick Rose. Earlier today, Beal made an appearance on a radio show on 106.7 The Fan in Washington D.C. And when he was asked if he would lose respect for a teammate if he sat out during the playoffs like D-Rose just did, Beal admitted that he would.

"A little bit," he said. "Yeah, I would. The type of player he is, and the mentality and competitiveness that he has, I think he would have gave it a go. I don't know what was holding him back. I think he's scared it's probably going to happen again and he won't be the same. But you're never the same after an injury. But you just have to fight through it and do something else to be able to impact the game. I'm not sure what it is he has to do. I really can't speak for him."

Hmmm…Really? 'Cause it kinda sounds like you just did. Or, at least, you tried to. So you better look out next season! Something tell us D-Rose isn't going to forget about this.
