Connected Derrick Rose Stories

A Chicago Tribune story this morning revealed that Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose recently paid $2.8 million for a condo near the top of the Trump International Hotel & Tower. The article stated that Rose currently lives in north suburban Northbrook but will soon be moving to the downtown riverside condo.

Tonight the Tribune put out another story about Rose. This afternoon he had a "minor fender bender" on the inbound Kennedy Expressway near Ogden Avenue when a Saturn driver rear-ended his 2011 Bentley.

One could speculate that had Rose already moved into his new condo, he probably wouldn't have been on the Kennedy Expressway!*

* Of course, I am presuming that Rose was coming from his home in Northbrook this afternoon. He could have been driving from some other suburban location. I also have no idea where he was headed -- maybe he was going to his new condo to enjoy the sunset? Regardless, this afternoon's crash must have reassured him that getting rid of that heinous commute was a good idea, whatever the cost.
