Somebody Is Suing Derrick Rose For Sitting Out The Season Brandon Caldwell April 19, 2013 Sports There are frivolous lawsuits abound in this country and here’s yet another one with an interesting twist. A man in Peoria, Illinois is suing Derrick Rose over missing the 2012-13 NBA regular season due to his torn ACL suffered last year in the playoffs. According to the suit, Matthew Thompson alleges that Rose’s injury and subsequent time spent on the bench as opposed to being in uniform caused him to have severe mental breakdowns, emotional distress and caused him to gain weight. Also, Thompson states in his suit that Rose showed negligence by refusing to lace up his Adidas despite being medically cleared to play by team doctors.
