Derrick Rose said that the trade sending him away from his hometown of Chicago to New York took him by surprise.
"I couldn’t believe it. I was kind of hurt at first, of course, coming from my hometown and moving, period," Rose said. "Being away from my kids and away my family, that’s going to get to you, no matter who you are. You’re going to be emotional about it." Rose added that he is happy to be suiting up for the Knicks, he loves the culture that Phil Jackson is creating in New York and is ready for everyone to see a "more mature player." With Brandon Jennings backing him up, Rose will likely have his minutes closely monitored, so it's going to be tough to invest anything more than a late-round selection on the former MVP.
