Derrick Rose is out for the season with a torn meniscus in his knee

Later, tater.

NBA: New York Knicks at Miami Heat Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Derrick Rose is done for the season after an MRI discovered a small tear in his meniscus. Quoth the Woj:

Rose suffered the injury in Monday’s game against the Pistons and was limping noticeably throughout much of the game. In hindsight, that was probably a mistake...hell, it seems like a mistake at the time.

You would figure this would spell the end of Rose’s time in New York, considering the fact that he walked away from the team at one point this year without informing them. Then again, these are the Knicks, so who the hell knows?

Hopefully the Knicks are just doing him a solid with the surgery. Fixing up Rose’s meniscus when they don’t have is some pretty good P.R. as far as attracting future free agents is concerned, and Lord knows the Knicks could use some good P.R. these days.

Thus ends a star-crossed season that began with a rape trial and pretty much sucked in a way that only a Knicks season can suck. Ron Baker and Chasson Randle — just kidding, I mean Sasha Vujacic — will likely get the bulk of Rose’s minutes. In all seriousness, though, give Randle some more playing time.
