Rose is one of the most talented NBA players of his era, but injuries keep robbing him and fans of seeing it. Flashes of brilliance occur in between long stints of him being on the bench watching like everyone else in the arena. It's obvious that Rose's body just can't handle the rigors of a full NBA season.
There is life after basketball. Rose needs to take care of his body so he can enjoy that time as pain-free as possible. He should call it a career.
Rose has unfinished business in the NBA, and as long as he has the skills to help a team win a championship, he would be wasting his talent by sitting at home.
Rose is obviously still good enough to contribute to a playoff team, and have an impact on the team. He is still explosive and has a lot to offer as a player. If he quit, it would rob people of one of the greatest comeback stories in the NBA. He could be the player younger athletes look up to when they are hurt and want to quit as well. Rose needs to stay in the NBA.
