Derrick Rose’s rough offseason continued Thursday when a picture of him flashing gang signs surfaced in the media.

Rose is flashing the Gangster Disciples’ sign in the above photo, which was taken during a party his freshman year at Memphis. The gang originated on the South Side of Chicago in the 1960’s.

Rose issued an apology today, saying the photo showed poor judgment but was meant only as a joke.

Aside from his fraudulent SAT, D-Rose has never been in trouble. He seems to be a good dude, just a little immature around the edges. Hopefully he has learned from his mistakes and grown up.

Rose is the face of the Bulls franchise and needs to be mindful of the example he is setting for his young fans. He should also remember that people tend to do stupid things when they are baked out of their mind.

Stay tuned.
