With the NBA Draft just around the corner, I think it’s time that we take some time to acclimate ourselves with some guys that will almost definitely make an impact in the league. Specifically, I’m referring to the exceptional point guard from Memphis, Derrick Rose, who went mostly under the national radar due to his playing for Conference USA team Memphis. A great tidbit that I read several times throughout his freshman season was that Rose was called “Winnie the Pooh” by his grandmother when he was a kid. She said it was because he was chubby and yellow. Derrick capitalized on this someone crass reference to his skin tone, which he parlayed into the magical ballhandling persona called “Poohdini.” I was nearly sure that it was an instance of Wikipedia graffiti when I read that he had a tattoo of a wizard wielding a basketball on his shoulder, accompanied by a script application of the moniker. Research proved to be difficult, especially before the tournament, but exceptional examples prove that this is indeed true. Something about this kid’s game tells me that this will one day be common knowledge.
This is the ultimate example of why you should pick up things that you find in the street.
