Speedy Campana feels for Bulls' Rose
By Doug Padilla
PHILADELPHIA -- As a guy that relies on speed and quickness, Chicago Cubs center fielder Tony Campana said it pained him to see Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose suffer an ACL injury.
“Just thinking about something like that, especially for him, he’s so explosive, his first step and the way he jumps, yeah, I can definitely understand how he’s feeling,” Campana said. “That would be pretty rough.”
Campana has never dealt with a knee injury himself and said he works diligently to make sure his legs are in ideal shape.
“My legs are my career pretty much, so yeah, I try to keep them as healthy as possible,” he said. “When you see something like that you have to cringe. You have to feel for him because he’s a guy that really relies on his legs.”
