Derrick Rose is extremely happy with his new team in New York and it’s led him to proclaim them the 2nd ‘Super Team’ in the NBA.
“With these teams right now, they’re saying us and Golden State are the super teams, and they’re trying not to build that many super teams, and [commissioner] Adam Silver came out with the statement and this and that,” Rose said to NBA.com.
“And the expectations I think of us, we just want to win. Talking to [Carmelo Anthony] and all the guys who’ve been around. You’ve got Brandon [Jennings] who just signed for one year, he’s got to show why he’s there. I’ve got to show why I’m there. Joakim [Noah] has to show why he’s there. Everybody’s trying to prove themselves.”
Rose has one part right, many consider the Warriors the odds-on-favorite to win the title next season given Kevin Durant’s arrival.
At least the Knicks know they’re getting a confident D. Rose. They just better hope they’re getting a healthy one as well.
