Rose: “People always said I didn’t recruit. I tried to recruit. I put out the video. But it wasn’t for me to say that [I was recruiting].
“I felt like the organization was supposed to say that, and they didn’t.”
What did you do?
Rose: “I put out a video for them—to [Wade], Chris Bosh and LeBron.”
And the organization didn’t send it?
Rose: “[The organization] sent it, but I don’t know if they actually really looked at it or played the video. But I made a video.
“But at time, it wasn’t for me to say that.”
Why is this only coming out now?
Rose: “I just wanted to see who had my back.”
