Reggie Rose loves his younger brother, so of course when he speaks about him, it’s gonna be from the heart and a bit controversial.

The Bulls stood pat, and made no moves at the trade deadline to put talent around Derrick Rose, and that irked Reggie beyond understanding.

Reggie told ESPN Chicago that the Bulls lack of adding talent around Derrick could play a “big factor” in whether or not he returns this season.

“What have you pieced together? Have you made any moves? Have you made any trades to get better? You know all roads to the championship lead through Miami,” Reggie Rose told ESPNChicago.com. “What pieces have you put together for the physical playoffs?

Joakim Noah is a great player. Luol Deng is a great player. But you need more than that. You have to put together pieces to your main piece. The players can only do so much. It’s up to the organization to make them better.”

“It’s frustrating to see my brother play his heart and soul out for the team and them not put anything around him,” Reggie Rose said.

“Everyone is expecting Derrick to come back,” Reggie Rose said. “If Derrick comes back, they’re going to sell more tickets. Is the reason for Derrick to come back to win a championship or make money? Right now, I don’t believe a championship. Everything in the NBA is financial.”

Bull head coach Tom Thibodeau was asked if those comments by Reggie Rose could cause a distraction?

“Nah, not really,” Thibodeau said before the Bulls hosted the Miami Heat. “Obviously Reggie and Derrick are very close. We share the same concerns about Derrick’s health, so that’s not anything new. So it’s not a big deal. And Reggie’s entitled to his own opinion.”

    Being from Chicago and a Bulls fan I feel the same way as Reggie Rose. The Bulls front office dont want a Championship they want to make money off a Derrick Rose return. The revenue he will bring in is their Championship!
