its a shame really...
these kids are so good at sports that they are pretty much given a free pass when it comes to grades and school work.
i'm willing to bet Rose is as dumb as a doorknob when it comes to school, but he can read plays and defences like a genius.
the only problem is, he's probably never had to do a single hour of actual homework or study for a test his whole life, because he's a superstar athlete.
its not his fault he isnt smart, its his teachers and people around him that made him believe he didnt have to do any work to get by... and unfortunately, they were right.
