Derrick Rose Says The Knicks & Warriors Are The Only ‘Super-Teams’ in The NBA
New York Knicks point guard Derrick Rose, who was acquired through a trade this offseason, had some interesting comments when it came to who the super teams in the NBA were.
“With these teams right now, they’re saying us and Golden State are the super teams, and they’re trying not to build that many super teams, and [commissioner] Adam Silver came out with the statement and this and that,” Rose said during a recent interview with NBA.com.
“And the expectations I think of us, we just want to win. Talking to [Carmelo Anthony] and all the guys who’ve been around. You’ve got Brandon [Jennings] who just signed for one year, he’s got to show why he’s there. I’ve got to show why I’m there. Joakim [Noah] has to show why he’s there. Everybody’s trying to prove themselves.”
Derrick Rose’s reoccurring injuries clearly have traveled from his knees to his brain. This is the same Knicks team that is coming off a 32-win season, and although their roster was upgraded, it is NOWHERE near super-team quality. Super-team in 2011, maybe. 2016, nah.
