The 2011 MVP says the chants made him “reminisce about the old days.”
Per The Pioneer Press:
“I did,” [Tom] Thibodeau said when asked pregame if he believed Rose could get back to this level of play. “The thing I think people forget about with him is he was MVP at 22 years old. He was still young. That’s the biggest thing. I always thought if he got back to being healthy he could be very productive.”
In his first time back in the Windy City since re-establishing himself as a force to be reckoned with in the league, Rose, like he has all season long, did a little bit of everything.
“I had to crack a smile a little bit,” Rose said. “It made me reminisce about the old days.”
