Evening Eye Candy: Chicago Bulls Baller Derrick Rose

November 27, 2012  |  

In the early to mid 2000s, Derrick Rose was a wunderkind basketball star getting compared to all the great basketball players who had ever picked up a ball in or been in the city of Chicago. And as he got older he grew into a better player year after year, being picked as the third best high school point guard of all time, also getting picked as “Mr. Basketball” in Illinois, getting recruited to make big moves at Memphis, and after helping to lead the Tigers to the NCAA Championship (which was later wiped from the books after eligibility issues), he was picked as the number one draft pick in 2008 by the Chicago Bulls. He has been a treasure ever since, even getting the Bulls to the Eastern Conference Finals in the 2010-11 season. And in all these years that he’s put up great numbers, received numerous accolades (including Rookie of The Year and the NBA MVP) and acquired big moneymaking endorsements, he’s looked good the entire time.  Maybe that’s why we miss him so much while he nurses an ACL injury this season. If there weren’t enough reasons to love you some of this guy, especially because he’s so humble and fine, then this slideshow will give you a few more.

If there’s one thing I love on a man, it’s a nice pair of lips and a good set of buff biceps and triceps to hold on to. And yes, the tattoos are kind of hot as well!

Aside from being one of the most loved NBA stars, Derrick is a very stylish fella, and maybe that’s why he’s always in and on the cover of GQ looking HOT.

Oh Derrick, how delicious are you? Let me count the ways…you’re talented, handsome, smart, humble, and a hard worker. Plus, you’re from Chi-town, and that’s always a plus *winks*

Can we see a modeling career for Derrick in the future? WHO CARES! As long as they can keep fancy and fly photoshoots like this coming because I’m loooooooooving it!

You know what they say about a man with big feet…No, I’m just kidding! That’s mad inappropriate, but whether he’s in a suit or a simple tank, isn’t Derrick just too cute?

I’m pretty sure this guy was born with a basketball in his hands. That would explain a lot…

Never has anybody looked so good in a Bulls jersey since Jordan in the ’90s, and he has definitely made his city proud. Get well soon D Rose!

And aside from being a standout basketball player, Rose is a committed boyfriend to his longtime girlfriend, Mieka Reese, and the two brought their adorable son P.J. into the world earlier this year. Awwwwww! What a family man!

Now that you’ve seen more photos of Derrick with his beloved ball, with his beloved baby and looking good as all get out, what do you think? Is he your cup of tea? Let us know below!
