Chicago Bulls former all star and former league MVP Derrick Rose will not recruit Carmelo Anthony or any star that is a free agent come Tuesday July 1.
Seems that Derrick is quite fine in the role of player and only that, as he says “it’s not his job” to recruit players to the Bulls.
“My thing is if they want to come, they can come,” Rose said.”I love Melo’s game,” Rose said. “He’s a great player. Takes the game serious. He’s consistent. He shoots the ball great. I love his heart.
“I can play with anybody, no matter who it is. I believe I can play with anyone if they step on the court with me.”
I’m not sure what to take from this. Does Rose have a point? Should he leave that totally up to management? Or should he at least be willing to talk to potential free agents interested in coming to Chicago? Just earlier this season, we heard of his team mate Joakim Noah pitching Carmelo at the All Star game.
Whichever you think right, Rose is definitely a different type of cat. One who marches to the beat of his own drum for sure.
