This story is continue to unravel but it is one hell of a story.
Derrick Rose just plain didn’t show up for their game versus the Pelicans. The Knicks have no idea where he is. He didn’t talk to the team or all the coaches before or after the game. Joakim Noah could only describe Rose as being “okay.” “I mean, I don’t really want to talk too much about it because I don’t really know what the situation is,” said Noah, who has played with Rose since 2008 as teammates in Chicago before coming to New York. “Obviously Derrick is one of our better players. And when he is not here it is tough. But I am just happy that everything is OK with him.” I’m pretty sure that is the tone of someone dealing with someone who is not “okay.” Teammate Kristap Porzingas and Curtney Lee last saw Rose at shootaround in the morning. Lee even said that he was praying for Rose. “We don’t know what’s going on, hopefully he and his family are good, too,” Porzingis said.”Everything will become clear later on,” added Knicks coache Jeff Hornacek. “You know, we want to respect whatever he’s going through. We’re just not going to comment on it.”
This is a crazy story but Frank Isola from the New York Daily News is reporting tha Rose is in Chicago. This would add up if he is dealing with personal issues but theres another side to this coin. He may be home sick and may be thinking damn I want to play for the Bulls.
We will update the story as more news comes out.
