Derrick Rose: ‘The Worst Thing You Can Do Is Give Me Confidence’

by March 27, 2011

Yahoo has some stats and the quote: “At this point, those “M-V-P!” chants even follow Derrick Rose when he and the Chicago Bulls go on the road. The way Rose stole a game from the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday certainly made him seem worthy. Rose orchestrated a stunning 12-0 run by Chicago in the final three minutes, rallying the Bulls for a 95-87 victory. ‘The worst thing you can do is give me confidence no matter what I’m doing,’ Rose said. ‘If I get any type of confidence, it’s going to be hard to stop me.’ A large, loud contingent of traveling Bulls fans made Rose feel at home, chanting “M-V-P!” as the final seconds ran out—just as they did throughout the game. Rose finished with 30 points and a career-high 17 assists. And while the way he took over the game at the end was jaw-dropping, his passing was just as impressive.”

Aside from the above, according to K.C. Johnson, Rose had the following to say after the game.
