Derrick Rose: Knicks, Warriors Are The Super Teams

Jul 22, 2016 9:43 AM

Derrick Rose believes the New York Knicks are the NBA's other new superteam along with the Golden State Warriors.

Rose was asked about what the expectations should be for the Knicks this season. New York acquired Rose, Joakim Noah and Courtney Lee to join Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis.

"They're high. I mean, with these teams right now, they're saying us and Golden State are the super teams, and they're trying not to build that many super teams, and Adam Silver came out with the statement and this and that," said Rose. "And the expectations I think of us, we just want to win. Talking to Melo and all the guys who've been around. You've got Brandon who just signed for one year, he's got to show why he's there. I've got to show why I'm there. Joakim has to show why he's there. Everybody's trying to prove themselves. When you've got a group like that, it's like, alright, I know everybody wants to do that, but we're going to break this down as simple as possible, and try to win every game. I think winning takes care of every category, as far as being an athlete. You look at endorsements, being on the floor, almost everything -- I think winning takes care of all that. And if you're in the league, winning takes care of all the mistakes, or if you have any problems on teams."

Rose is excited to be playing in New York.

"I'm going into a great market," Rose says. "I'm going into a city where they love basketball -- basketball is a culture there, and they love players that play hard. And I think I fit that."

"I think this is a huge opportunity for me, and I'm preparing myself right now."
