Derrick Rose was introduced as a member of the New York Knicks on Friday just two days after he was traded by the Chicago Bulls.
Rose is in the final season of his current contract.
“I don’t know why I was traded,” said Rose, “but I would like to tell them thank you. For real.”
Rose said the feeling of being with the Knicks still doesn't feel real.
"It still don’t feel real. Seeing my picture on a billboard or a screen outside the building, it kind of blew me away."
Rose also said he believes he can regain his MVP form.
"I feel like I’m close. But me sitting up here and saying it isn’t going to do anything."
