Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose has been wearing neck tape to help with the neck soreness he has felt over the last week, and according to ESPN, he may continue to wear it after he has healed.

Rose said jokingly that if he has a big game tonight against the Philadelphia 76ers, he will continue to wear the tape. He was wearing the tape on both sides of his neck when he made the go-ahead shot in the final seconds of Thursday’s game against the New York Knicks.

“As long as the league allows me to,” said the former NFL MVP. “If I have a breakthrough game I might wear it the whole year.”
