Regardless of how you feel towards Derrick Rose the basketball player, you have to respect him as a man.
Today the Bulls star attended the funeral of slain Chicago native Endia Martin and he did so unannounced. Being from Chitown, D Rose felt it was only right to pay his respects to the family of the 14 year old girl whose life was senselessly taken away over a Facebook beef.
It’s times like these that you see a person’s true character.
UPDATE: Derrick Rose playing 5-on-5 and is 100% according to brother, Reggie Rose.

Derrick on the bench - 1/29 @ Spurs
Can’t wait to see him back in action this summer!
"The guy selling the newspapers on the streets, cold outside, sees me driving by, he’s excited. He’s like, ‘Let’s go Bulls. Get it done tonight.’ I feel like I play for that guy. When I look at the top of the arena, teams call timeout, and I see that guy who looks this big and he’s up cheering and jumping up and down, that’s the guy I play for. To me, that’s what the city represents. There are a lot of hardship and adversity in the city. When I play basketball, I want people to be proud of their team."
UPDATE: Derrick Rose was in the United Center today and was in good spirits. He wasn’t walking with any crutches and seemed upbeat about his recovery.
