LeBron James reacted to Derrick Rose’s career-high 50-point game on Wednesday (October 31) night following Los Angeles’s one-point victory over Dallas.
LeBron told reporters, “Even when a superhero is knocked down he’s still a superhero at the end of the day. Derrick Rose showed he’s still a superhero.”
D. Rose turned back the clock on Halloween … droppin’ a career-high 50 points in Minnesota’s win over the Jazz — and LBJ couldn’t have been happier when he saw the news after his Lakers game.
“I seen it first hand how much you worked and dedicated on your body, craft, mind, etc etc just to play 1 game at a time!” LBJ wrote.
“Perseverance is a mutha and this is the ABSOLUTE perfect definition of it!! Salute Bro! #DRoseforPresident”
Of course … Rose — who was a role player on LeBron’s Cavs squad last season — was the league’s MVP back in 2011, but injuries and inconsistent play led many to call his career dead years ago.
That’s why NBA stars … from Dwyane Wade to Stephen Curry to Vince Carter … all took to social media to congratulate D. Rose on the epic night.
