Steve Aschburner from NBA.com talks about Derrick Rose and whether or not his camp has a rift or agenda against the organization - 3/11
Why we want to see that burner from NBA dot com very plugged in in the association. What is your take on what's going on when they're -- It's well I think right now we're in the midst of a huge boy who cried wolf situation. I think that what was forced to create a physical rehab. Has been muddied and turned into something you know much more dramatic needlessly insult and I think on both sides I think that. That in terms of the Bulls making they're available to communicate. With the fans and with the media I think that they were they're culpable and that they they should've done a better job. Home and on the course for what you -- stuff now all of a sudden jokes return is what discretionary. I think that's a huge mistake somehow from -- talk about him strengths. If this wasn't just physical mutual now OK I know I mean that's something we could play through maybe. Now you wonder. Is he going for that to get it try to walk it back with something physical when that's really out here and more. I'm here that the that the hamstring is really are not an issue at all it's the way -- settle everybody down. That then the me if she gave why wouldn't he play because I mean I think it's all mental now I really do I think he's got I think his -- in his -- I think his campus in a while it was apologizing and you can't win so why you're rushing back that can win doing that can win those -- I think this is still. We're we're darn good team okay and -- your guys who haven't had a point -- I mean you haven't been able to come on Kirk Hinrich. He can't put Nate Robinson and I mean your marquis Teague is years away if he's ever going to be a good point guard. You need a point guard -- only gonna have him maybe 1520 minutes a game like this initially I don't know eventually but I -- we don't know I think. The other thing is if if Reggie Rose his release the voice of -- camp right and he doesn't believe that the Bulls have enough to win. Then of what incentive would Derrick Rose have to ever come back right because until they've bring in another superstar. What's the point that hole that is not a couple years right I mean right now then they might as well just take a vacation for two years. Mike my take on this is that he just needs to come back when he's physically able to play those fifteen to twenty minutes. Because he's not -- -- be himself he's not going to be the Derrick Rose and everyone knows and you know what that might be the essence of this he might be. Scared about going on the basketball court and competing. When he's not being more Derrick Rose he's gonna have to go through inconsistencies when I have to -- off crossed. And I think that he's never been in that position to he's always had his powers to someone. And I think that that's a concern to him business and -- time and a players' careers and that Stephen mean. -- -- what I understand visual presence great I know there's a great unknown in terms of what happens when he takes off off that -- now Brian Cole can say you're no greater risk of re injury then. And you never -- on this. But he doesn't have to take off and and with the -- the -- those when he plants and jobs are. I think that the deal is did him a major disservice with the whole campaign the return I agree with it you know and just. Just awful in hindsight I mean I'm not sure that anybody thought of it at the time but you look at it now it's like you know. I'm sure he's feeling it and it that -- I gotta get back I gotta get back but I'm not that I'm not what I am or what I wanna be. -- but let's remember too that the Bulls have sort of hedged on the season. Themselves so what's the message they have sent to Derek in this camp it's that well you know to the championship or boss. And and I just think that's a terrible way to approach an NBA season there are. Look at you develop where there's 29 miserable teams over here and there that's wrong I think them at some point growth is gonna have to go through his first ten games back whether it's a sprained. Or in the fall at some point he's going to have to give us his yeah. -- you -- cover the league. How has it become weird Reggie Rose is the Bulls didn't do anything and then that's the perception of the fan out there that the Bulls are sitting on this pile of money. And they refuse to spend it well would put the numbers we can show to everybody right now the numbers that the Bulls are dealing with on the salary cap. The hard cap a 743. The luxury tax threshold is just over seventy. The bulls' payroll is 74. They are. Which order -- have a hard cap because of the exception to use that Belinelli and -- kinda sick kids spend the money. What can make trades they could trade for extortion the punishment under the cap I think the all my actual dollar deal was really what I think -- a lot of fans -- know against. What the bulls' offseason plan was Kyle Korver leading three point shooter in the NBA right now you know both of pieces that. If you're trying to -- took slope to a championship Wendell you don't let those pieces go. For for -- and often. So do then do the Bulls make a mistake. By keeping him Taj Gibson and not investing in Omer -- I don't know there was any of the more you pay UK. All mount when he's up and then you deal with -- when you need to.
