Pooh: The Derrick Rose Story

Director: 
Scott Diener

Derrick Rose became the youngest MVP in NBA history and a celebrated superstar for the Bulls in his hometown of Chicago. Rose's gritty style on the court was forged by a childhood surrounded by gang violence and poverty in Englewood. His single-minded determination to save his family from a continued life of hardships led him to a win at all costs mentality on and off the court.

Stadium’s documentary “Pooh: The Derrick Rose Story” gives a never before seen look at the meteoric rise of the young Chicago superstar that was suddenly derailed by devastating injuries and unrealistic expectations for a hometown hero. Rose's story is one of survival - through violence, poverty and injury - the one time heir to Michael Jordan's iconic throne has never forgotten where he came from as he continues to search for his own inner peace.
