Here's a rookie mistake by NBA Rookie of the Year Derrick Rose.
He's not very love-a-bull in this photo.
Rose says he flashed the "pitchforks" sign of the Gangster Disciples Nation while attending a party as a student-athlete at the University of Memphis- but in a statement he issued today, Rose says he meant the picture "as a joke... a bad one, I now must admit."
The Bulls guard goes on:
"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 a gang and can't speak loudly enough against gang violence, and the things that gangs represent."
A spokesman for the Bulls says the organization is largely unconcerned about the photo.
What do you make of the picture?
