Derrick Rose ‘Sick and Tired’ of Dwight Howard Trade Talk

Derrick Rose is just like you, it turns out. He’s also grown tired of discussing Dwight Howard’s future. From the Daily Herald: “Before facing Orlando, Rose said he’s had enough of answering questions about whether Magic center Dwight Howard could have his trade request satisfied with a move to Chicago. ‘You get sick and tired of hearing it. Like I said, the city speaks for itself,’ Rose said. ‘I’m cool with the teammates I have. We have a winning record; don’t think we need to change anything. But it’s not up to me, it’s up to the front office.’ Rose insisted the only time he pays much attention to NBA trade rumors is when reporters share a story or ask about it. ‘I just try to live my life where if it’s not about the Bulls, I really could care less about it,’ he said. ‘I don’t know what’s going on, who’s talking to who. Y’all know more than I do.’”

    Good attitude as far as him being worried about his own team but in a sense get over it man. That’s the medias job to beat a story in the ground until it either happens or doesn’t happen.

    chicago would be such a likeable team with the dwight and rose combo

  • Otis

    He’s not the only one…

  • the truth

    Rose is the realest dude in the league. And @roy howard is a whiner and fake tough guy, he would make me like the bulls less

    Please tell me how in the f*ck does Howard act like a fake tough guy? I’ll agree he’s a whiner but he’s anything but a fake tough guy. If anything he doesn’t get into scuffles like that to gain that title.

    Boozer and Noah for Howard? They’d still have Gibson and Omer… Scalabrine.

  • trueballer

    Rose is humble down to earth and does not care about all this hoop hype, he just plays the game..! hes not caught up like most players in nba..

  • robb

    you tell them Derrick!

  • banoy

    Get Howard to beat Heatles…just a thought…

  • What

    This is the most ironic title ive ever seen

  • BostonBaller

    hahahaha. Rose’s response was fine and no one should beat him up over it. I just think it’s funny that if it were another player or team with the same response, this board would be full of hateful comments. lol MARCH MADNESS on the way!!
