Growing up in a neighborhood or 2 over from Englewood and traveling to the same school, I know of the many trials and dangers a young man faces in this city, which makes me that much more proud when someone rises out, reaches their potential, and achieves their dream. I'm sure many south side natives were just as proud when Derrick Rose made it to the NBA and even more so when he recently showed everyone why he deserves to be there. Chicago team or not, we know who was Chicago-bred.
