Derrick Rose expanded on his comments from a few weeks ago saying the New York Knicks were in the same "Super Team" class as the Golden State Warriors.
Many dismissed Rose's assertion as the Knicks will have to compete to make the playoffs in the Eastern Conference.
"I still believe that,” Rose said. “Like I said, with that Super Team term, you have to be very careful, I guess, if you’re in the United States. But I feel like if you’re in any team in the NBA -- it don’t have to be the NBA, it could be the college level, high school level -- you should believe in yourself and have the confidence in yourself that you’re playing on a super team anywhere. So I have a lot of confidence, and I’m not taking that back."
Rose is ready to share the ball with the Knicks.
“We have more options on this team. With the Bulls, we had more options too but the offense really went through me and Jimmy [Butler],” Rose said. “With the Knicks, we have [Kristaps Porzingis], we have [Carmelo Anthony], we have [Joakim Noah] rolling to the rim. We’ve got Courtney [Lee].”
