Rose is betting on himself this season, and Frye said that Rose has been “BBQ chicken every day” on the court.
From the Road Trippin’ podcast (starting at 1:15:40):
“I called my brother after I saw D-Rose [in practice]. I said, This boy is BBQ chicken every day!
“I have never seen a man so violently go to the rack like he does, and then loop-the-loop, and all of a sudden the ball floats up and just goes in every single time.
“And then his ability to pass is crazy. Crazy. It’s so much better than I thought it was. Because I thought it was really like get a screen, attack the big, finish. You know, penetrate, penetrate, finish.
“But now, it’s like, he’s throwing passes over his head, behind his back. I think he sees the floor because we do have floor spacing.”
