Derrick Rose Is Popular

Kobe &
LeBron &
Dwight &

Snuh? As in the Bulls' Derrick Rose, he of the Rookie of the Year from last season? His red and black #1 jersey is #4 in jersey sales according to behind the likes of mega-stars Kobe Bryant and LeBron James and (quasi) mega star (but very tall) Dwight Howard of the Orlando Magic. Rose's sales beat out such luminaries from the NBA galaxy as Chicago's very own Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat, Denver's Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett of Boston. If Tailgate wore jerseys we'd have to go with Joakim Noah's number 13 or Kevin Durant's number 35 for Oklahoma City. Let us know what jersey you really wanna wear in the comments.

I love Derrick but may have to switch to Joakim he is playing so well.

Noah should be an all-star. East bigs are weaksacue aside from Dwight.
