On Wednesday, the New York Knicks gave their fans something to cheer about after they made a blockbuster trade, acquiring former MVP point guard Derrick Rose from the Chicago Bulls. They also acquired a PR disaster as Rose has a sexual battery case against him from a former girlfriend.

That trial just so happens to begin on Rose’s 28th birthday, October 4th, which is also the same day the New York Knicks play their first preseason game. The alleged victim is accusing Rose and his friends of drugging her and then gang-raping her. She is seeking $21 Million in damages.

New York Tabloids won’t be kind.
