‘‘If you’re a hooper and you know as a basketball player if you can play with someone, I don’t think it’s a problem with just coming to a team. . . . I’ll play with anyone. And I think I can play with anyone. But I’ll never recruit.’’
It’s not exactly new news that Rose suggested he wouldn’t attempt to bring free agents to the Windy City, though, it is a bit shocking he continues to maintain the stance.
I certainly admire his views on the subject, but unfortunately ‘power’ teams have become all the rage in the NBA – though in fairness, only the Heat have shown that to work in recent years, likely due to the fact they employ the best player in the league.
