Derrick Rose isn’t exactly the most popular guy in the NBA since electing to skip the Chicago Bulls' 2012-13 campaign to recover from his torn knee ligament. The Englewood native has been called soft, mentally weak, not fit to lead, and he’s reportedly even been sued for his decision not to play.

This has all happened right here in Chicago, and the chatter from other parts of the country has been equally as critical.

But one Chicagoan stands behind D. Rose and his decision: stand-up comedian and one of the stars on NBC’s "The Office," Craig Robinson.

Robinson appeared recently on ESPN’s SportsNation television program and sang a song he wrote for the injured basketball star. And yes, it was hilarious.

Hopefully, someone has shown this to D. Rose who could probably use something to laugh about considering how much heat he’s taken both in Chicago and around the country for his decision.
