Derrick Rose Is Anti-Gangs … Riiiight

You can take the boy out of the hood but you can’t take the hood out of Derrick Rose.

The Chicago Bulls point guard apologized for throwing up a gang sign in a picture that’s circulating the web.

“Recently, a photo has been circulating on the Internet which appears to depict me flashing a gang sign,” Rose said in the statement. “This photo of me was taken at a party I attended in Memphis while I was in school there, and was meant as a joke … a bad one, I now admit. I want to emphatically state, now and forever, that Derrick Rose is anti-gang, anti-drug, and anti-violence. I am not, nor have I ever been, affiliated with any gang and I can’t speak loudly enough against gang violence, and the things that gangs represent.”

Don’t forget anti-SAT (allegedly).

The NCAA is investigating a Memphis player that played in only one season in 2007-08 who had a person take the SAT for them.

And only one person fits that description … Rose.
