Being buddies with a co-work is never a requirement, but for some reason in sports we’re all obsessed with everyone in the locker room being best friends. Which brings us to the ongoing rumoured rift between Chicago Bulls leader Derrick Rose and upstart guard Jimmy Butler. Recently, Rose had a chance to address those rumors point blank with CSN Chicago and here is what he had to say about the whole thing.
“It’s false. It’s so false. It’s so false. I love Jimmy as a player and as a person for one. Just knowing what he came from, what he had to go through just to get in this position. He still has a bright future. I’m lucky in my career to be playing with a player where the sky’s the limit. Like who knows how good he can be and who knows how good the team can be. It’s very exciting not only be playing with this team but with a guy like that.”
Case. Closed. Maybe.
