Derrick Rose Pushes Back Against Accusations That He Didn't Recruit Free Agents

Derrick Rose Pushes Back Against Accusations That He Didn't Recruit Free Agents”

The irony in all that?

"I put out a video for him [Wade], Chris Bosh and LeBron".

"People always said I didn't recruit". Rose, who now plays with Wade and James in Cleveland, spoke to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune on Tuesday and opened up for the first time about that summer and how he did try to recruit Wade and James by making a video. "I put out a video", he said.

The now-29-year-old guard affirmed that he gave the video to the team's front office, who at the time seemed unwilling to change his media perception of a star who didn't like recruiting other players. I felt like the [Bulls] organization was supposed to say that and they didn't. Though the attempt never worked, Rose said that the Bulls did send the video to the trio of stars.

He was then asked if the organization even sent it out for him, and responded, "I mean it ain't for me to say that, but yeah, they didn't say anything about it". "If you want to come here, come here, but it's not up to me to make that decision".

Wade noted he thought he'd play alongside Rose in two different occasions, but this one might be his actual chance to make that a reality. "At the time it wasn't for me to say that". After starting his career in his hometown of Chicago, he spent last season with the New York Knicks.

The Cavaliers also have LeBron James on their roster and from the sound of things in the NBA community, he's still a pretty good basketball player.
