Derrick Rose says he has no bad blood with Bulls

Derrick Rose bears no ill will towards his former team.

Before his Cleveland Cavaliers played the Chicago Bulls in preseason Tuesday, Rose said that he had no hard feelings over the way his time in Chicago ended.

“It’s no bad blood with Chicago at all,” said the former No. 1 overall pick, per Dave McMenamin of ESPN. “Like, I understand the business side. It’s a business before anything. I understood that.”

Rose spent the first eight years of his career in Chicago, making three All-Star teams and winning the MVP Award in 2011. But he suffered through a number of catastrophic knee injuries during the latter part of his time with the Bulls and was eventually traded away to the New York Knicks in 2016 in a move he sounded blindsided by at the time. Rose also made some recent comments about how he was “in a dark place” years ago, but it doesn’t sound like he harbors any resentment towards the Bulls specifically anymore.
