Reporter Slams Derrick Rose For ‘I Can’t Breathe’ Shirt, Thinks NBA Player Is Inarticulate

 

You knew that it wouldn’t take long before someone of note criticized Derrick Rose for wearing an ‘I Can’t Breathe’ shirt during last night’s warmup before the Chicago Bulls’ game against the Golden State Warriors.

Dan Bernstein, a prominent sports radio host, took to Twitter last night and expressed that he doesn’t think that Rose “understands what he’s doing” and even if he did, isn’t articulate enough to explain himself. Cody Westerlund a sports editor for CBSChicago.com noted that Rose was not available for comments after the game.

The point guard was paying a tribute to Eric Garner, the Staten Island man who was choked to death by an NYPD officer. “I can’t breathe” were the last words uttered by Garner and has become a rallying cry for protestors across the nation.  On Wednesday a Staten Island grand jury decided not to indict officer Daniel Pantaleo in the choking death of the 43-year-old.
