Less than a month into his NBA career, Derrick Rose already can boast something none of his teammates can — a profile in Sports Illustrated.
Rose is featured in the latest issue of the magazine that hits newsstands on Wednesday, with the theme of the article being that the Bulls have their first player to build around since Michael Jordan left town.
In SI, Rose is quoted saying: “When I’m sitting in the locker room before games, I think about the history of this team, all those great players, what it was like in Chicago then. I want to get back to those days. I know a lot of pressure comes with that, but I want it. I want the pressure on me. I would be more worried if it wasn’t there.”
