Fallen star fights back tears in emotional career-high


//

2011 NBA MVP Derrick Rose has choked back tears after posting an emotional career-high 50-point game in the Timberwolves victory over the Jazz.

Rose was the youngest man ever to claim MVP honours in only his second year in the league, prompting pundits to tout the rising star as the heir apparent to Michael Jordan. 

His glistening future however was dashed by a countless slew of injuries which plagued his career as his name faded from the forefront of the basketball world's collective psyche. 

In 2017 the embattled star questioned hanging up the boots after countless seasons of woe on the sideline. 

However, in a renewed bid, Rose moved to Minnesota where he would be afforded the space to rehabilitate his body and game, this time sharing the burden of victory with a host of stars at the franchise. 

That had work culminated in a stellar performance on Thursday afternoon as Rose looked at his best, posting 50-points over the Jazz. 

It was all too much for the star who erupted in tears at the buzzer. 

"It means everything man, I worked my arse off," he said as he fought back tears in his post-match interview. 

"I went out and did this for the franchise, the organisation the fans everybody - I wouldn't be able to play without them.

"I'm doing anything just to win, I played my heart out."

Rose stated his ambition this season in claiming the NBA's sixth man of the year award, an accolade reserved for the player who has the biggest impact coming off the bench.
