    Derrick Rose cuts apple, arm - Ball Don't Lie - NBA - Yahoo! Sports :gaah:

    According to the Chicago Tribune's Full-Court Press blog, Bulls rookie Derrick Rose missed Monday's practice after he needed 10 stitches to close a gash suffered at home while — you're not going to believe this one — slicing an apple in bed. Amazing.

    "It was a silly incident," Rose said. "I was cutting up some food and I laid on a knife getting lazy in bed. I went to go get a bottle of water, came back, forgot the knife was there, then sat down and sliced my arm."

    Rose is expected to play Tuesday night against the Knicks at the United Center, which is good news, but it begs the question: why is Rose cutting Red Delicious apples with a machete? That seems excessive.

    Considering the alternatives, getting it in the arm might not be so bad.

    Yeah, we have a gun going off in somebody's pants and another guy sitting on a knife. A leg injury and an arm injury is the best possible outcome.

    Listen, these up and coming superstars are not like us regular folks. Do you think Rose drives a Ford Focus? No. Does he buy his clothes at Target? No.

    So why would he cut up an apple with a puny little knife? I'm sure he was using something like this.
