Derrick Rose will begin a new chapter in his career this fall when he laces up for the New York Knicks. The former MVP was in Las Vegas this week with adidas and was asked a lot of questions about the new situation he is headed into. Rose also discussed the Warriors, but made a eye-brow raising statement when he compared his Knicks to them, saying that people are referring to the two teams as “super teams”.
The strange part about this is that nobody this offseason seems to have referred to the Knicks as a super team. You’ve got to respect Rose’s confidence though, he seems excited and energized for the 2016-17 season. Via NBA.com:
“With these teams right now, they’re saying us and Golden State are the superteams, and they’re trying not to build that many superteams, and Adam Silver came out with the statement and this and that,” Rose said. “And the expectations I think of us, we just want to win.”
