Yes, I'm the guy who wrote that Derrick Rose was overrated.
That was back in 2006, when Rose was a junior at Simeon.
I don't regret what I wrote at the time. I still stand by it.
As a senior, however, Rose changed my mind for me.
As a junior, Rose was rated among the top five players in the nation, a class that included O.J. Mayo, Blake Griffin, Michael Beasley, Kevin Love, Kyle Singler, James Harden and Eric Gordon.
