The Chicago Bulls have been an uncertain force to be reckoned with, especially with point guard Derrick Rose continuously going in and out of the initial lineup due to health concerns. However, Rose had assured after Tuesday's practice that he is thinking about his long-term future with the team.
"I'm good, man," Rose said after being asked about his mindset regarding the state of his health. "I felt like I've been managing myself pretty good. I know a lot of people get mad when they see me sit out or whatever, but I think a lot of people don't understand that … when I sit out it's not because of this year."
"I'm thinking about long term. I'm thinking about after I'm done with basketball. Having graduations to go to, having meetings to go to, I don't want to be in my meetings all sore or be at my son's graduation all sore just because of something I did in the past. I'm just learning and being smart," he added. more >>
