Derrick Rose dropped a career-high 50 points during the Minnesota Timberwolves 128-125 win over the Utah Jazz on Wednesday.

The Chicago native broke down and cried during a post-game interview.

When asked what the achievement meant to him, Rose told the female reporter, “Man, everything, man. I worked my a** off, bro.”

He added:

“I went and did this for the franchise, the organization, the fans, everybody man. I played my heart out. My teammates told me before the game, just play my game. And tonight was a hell of a night.”

Rose, 30, added six assists, four rebounds and 2 steals to his stats. He scored 34 points in the first half and 15 points in the fourth quarter, according to the Chicago Tribune.

His feat comes a day after Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson scored 52 points in a game against the Chicago Bulls, breaking teammate Steph Curry’s record for most 3’s in a game.

    Never will applaud this clown. HIS ays is what’s wrong in college sports right the hail NOW. You worked your a$# off in this game…but had someone else take your SAT to get into U of Memph. You are a lie and a cheat. Will be glad when you retire.

    Pure emotion. Good for him!

  • Django the God

    This happened because Jimmy Butler sat out.

    He must have taken it personal, when Butler called the team soft.

    He reminds me of a manatee… Not that he look like one but when I see a manatee I cant stop looking at them because they look so odd they’re almost cute and then I look harder and I am like…no not… That’s how I feel every time I see a pic of D. Rose

    I came just to get your take on this. And you didn’t fail me. I feel the same way. To make it even worse didn’t pay said person and that why he was exposed. Just sad.

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    lol

  • FukkFolks2018

    The school caught all the heat and bore the huge brunt of that BS…and he still to this day hasnt seen not nary a anything far as punishment. That program is STILL to this DAY… in shambles. Its trying STILL to rebuild. Penny Hardaway is now the head coach and they have a new athletic director too I think. But a large part of the mess that it is…is due to the cat up top. Brought a whole entire college powerhoue to its knees for over a decade at this point. Its not ok.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Im still counting him out and hope he never prospers. How you gonna win if you aint right within?

    I agree him and the coach Calipari got off scott free. Moved on to bigger and better. They did the school and the program a big disservice. They knew that person wanted to be paid and they should had paid them instead they let the school and the program take the heat. I wanted to see Chris Douglas-Roberts do well, but that didn’t happen. I hope the school rebounds and does well.
