Lets hope Rose makes a full complete recovery and stay fully healthy through out the rest of his career. I hope this the last injury Rose ever have.

Did they say what grade the ACL injury was?

I was reading the comments on the espn article covering the topic and someone cited the Chicago Tribune (no links) in saying that they used a patellar tendon graft to reconstruct Rose's ACL
NBA is better when all the stars are on the court. Here's to a quick recovery for Rose.
Finally I can make myself useful
I tore my ACL my senior year in a basketball game. Similar play too remincing... whoah. I haven't read too much about what grade his was but mine was shredded... tore my meniscus as well as spraining my MCL.
I could go on a tangent here but it's easily the hardest thing I've dealt with... as much mentally as physically. It's not just your knee too, it's a lot of pain/work building up your hamstring & quad. You would not believe how much your muscles shrink and how ****ing tight your hamstring gets. I also got a patella graph so you'll feel a lot of soreness there in the beginning.
It's true that everyone is different though... I was ahead of the curb by like a month. I also had to continue on my own after 4 months though bc of school so I regressed in that sense. Long story short I didn't feel like my old self for about 10 months I would say, even though I felt good around 6 months. Good thing is though, it's true... rehab makes you get stronger in other areas. Might not feel yourself for a full year but you'll be in better shape.
Also have to factor in the fact that Rose will work extremely hard and has all the advantages medically/training wise. He'll be fine, just cannot rush it.
