Derrick Rose showed up. And he recruited.
The former MVP, who just days ago said he wouldn't help in recruiting any free agents to Chicago, made a surprise visit to the United Center on Tuesday as the Bulls brass rolled out the red carpet and met with seven-time All-Star Carmelo Anthony.
According to reports Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson also made stops to see Anthony, who was greeted at the United Center with video boards featuring his name and picture, photoshopped in a Bulls uniform.

The SportsTalk Live panel discussed how big a deal it is that Rose showed up and spoke with Anthony, and whether the "new" NBA is making it a must that current players recruit prospective ones.
