I can't say I blame him. Athletes are just now realizing that when they're old, they won't feel like they do when they're young, and he's felt some serious injury pain, and can now imagine what that is going to do to him long term. I have horribly painful knees and ankles from 8 years of skateboarding and tearing up my ankle ligaments and I've never had surgery like he has on my knees. So I get it. I wish I had taken it a little bit easier.

I don't have a horse in this race (I don't care about the Bulls or D-Rose), but if he's that worried about it, he needs to just play out his contract and then retire. Spending X% of his contract not playing because he's worried about life after basketball? No. You do the job you signed up to do. If you don't like what that job is doing to you, you then quit when you've fulfilled your side of the bargain.

I totally respect NFL players who do this. There's one who made millions, won a Superbowl, and then was like I'M OUT at 27yrs old or something like that. Fuck yeah, dude, you played your best, your contract ended, and you bounced, good for you!

But you should absolutely be playing to win and playing to 100% (or at least trying to) if you've been cleared by Doctors. I mean, if you don't want to play, then don't play.
