Derrick Rose: Trade from Bulls was ‘surprising,’ process sucks

Derrick Rose Knicks

Derrick Rose had his Chicago homecoming on Friday night as he played his first game against the Bulls since being traded to the Knicks.

Between the trade to New York and his rape trial in which he was cleared of all charges, it’s been a long offseason for Rose. On Friday, the former league MVP acknowledged that being traded was “surprising” and he said the process “sucks.”

Rose went from being beloved by Bulls fans as he won Rookie of the Year and MVP to being a player the fans disliked as he missed so much time due to multiple and recurring injuries. Rose’s choices to handle his return from his knee injuries with extra caution resulted in fans turning on him. He says he understands the fans’ mentality.

Through the first four games of the season, Rose averaged 16.3 points, 4 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game for the 1-3 Knicks.
