Bulls’ Derrick Rose Blasts Officials
Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose uncharacteristically lashed out at officials during and after his team’s 104-99 victory over the New York Knicks Monday night, showing his frustration at what he sees as a lack of fouls called against those defending him.
“I’ve gotta be the only superstar in the league that’s going through what I’m going through right now,” the reigning MVP said. “But I can’t say too much about it.”
Rose shot 12-of-29 from the floor for his game-high 32 points, but went to the foul line just nine times, sinking six and repeatedly showing his displeasure toward the officials at non-calls.
“How many times did I shoot today?” Rose asked. “I’m the point guard.”
