It's the offseason in the NBA right now, but that doesn't mean we can't get excited for next season! Spurring that excitement today is a new interview with our hometown hero Derrick Rose via Bulls TV. This is particularly worth sharing since Rose has been mum for much of the previous season, where towards the end, he drew an immense amount of attention for #TheReturn that wasn't. I personally think that got way out of hand, but I'll spare you the essay on the topic. Let's instead look forward as the Bulls will be championship contenders once again in '13-'14.
In the interview above, D. Rose sheds some light on his mental state throughout a tough last season, some behind the scenes looks into his day to day work and communication with Coach Thibs (the missed call anecdote is great), and leaves us on a couple of powerful messages transcribed below.
On any personal goals for next season:
"There is only one goal and that is to win the championship."
On any message to the fans about last season:
"Me sayin' it is somethin' totally different. I think me going on the court and showin' 'em will let 'em know it was the right decision."
He'll let his game do the talking. The end of October can't come soon enough!
