The Chicago Bulls and their fans -- along with USA Basketball and just the NBA playoffs in general -- suffered a major blow on Saturday night when reigning MVP Derrick Rose tore his ACL late in Game 1 against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Bulls teammate Kyle Korver posted an emotional and passionate message to Bulls fans on his Facebook page and much like earlier in the season when Ricky Rubio went down with a season-ending injury, Rose's NBA brethren showed their support on Twitter.

Some also showed their support for New York's Iman Shumpert, who also went down with a torn ACL in Game against Miami.

Scroll down to see how some NBA stars reacted to Rose's injury.
