France World Cup star randomly shouts out Derrick Rose
Perhaps Derrick Rose served as something of an inspiration for one member of the World Cup-winning France squad.
During a Fox Sports interview with midfielder Paul Pogba, French teammate Antoine Griezmann wandered into the shot and was given an opportunity to deliver a message in English. The forward, who scored in the final, went with a simple one: he just loves Derrick Rose.

There is no elaborate backstory. The simple explanation is that Griezmann is a huge NBA fan and has long counted Rose as one of his favorite players.

Rose has had a rough couple years, but they’ve inspired him to prove his doubters wrong. Griezmann is very clearly not one of those doubters.
