The NBA world was captivated last night during Stadium's premiere of "POOH: The Derrick Rose Story".
And while opinions on the documentary were wide ranging from media members, many current and former NBA players were enthralled by the youngest MVP in NBA history's story.
Zach LaVine was locked in from the jump:

A fellow kid from Chicago, Dwyane Wade, called D-Rose's recovery from injury an inspiration to many:
DRose thanks for sharing your story. You’re an inspiration to Millions but especially to the next generation in our home town Chicago! #Legend— DWade (@DwyaneWade) April 12, 2019
Certainly the most emotional part of the film was the inside look at the exact moment Rose was traded from Chicago to New York. It was raw - and for many Bulls fans - tough to relive.
The scene went viral on social media, with many in and around the NBA chiming in:
Wow. This is crazy! https://t.co/NdsLiiZXUY— Evan Turner (@thekidet) April 12, 2019
