I know it is GQ and it is all about being stylish and what not, but sorry I busted out laughing at this picture.
Just funny to me. Rose has been having a bit of tough year, but the Bulls are still poised to be the #1 seed in the Eastern Conference and make a run at a NBA Championship.
GQ took it a little far asking if he is the next Jordan when there is a legitimate debate if Rose is even the best Point guard in the league, but they have to sell magazines.
Jocks and Stiletto Jill have all the quotes of you are interested. Here are a couple that were I found somewhat curious.
…on LeBron’s infamous on-air decision to go to the Heat: “I won’t ever put myself in a bad position so that people can say bad things about me. I make smart decisions… I’m very mature for 23 years old, and I know that whatever I do can hurt someone.”
…on the people of Chicago: “Chicago isn’t used to stardom. …They don’t know how to act toward celebrity. So I always have someone with me. I can have a hat on, glasses on, whatever. People still notice me. If I go outside without a hat on, I feel like I’m naked. This life doesn’t fit my personality.”
Oprah is still from Chicago right? I think they are use to stars far greater than Derrick Rose, but I digress.
