Derrick Rose: HEAT True Rival, Not Pacers
Derrick Rose believes the Bulls have only one main rival — and it’s the Miami Heat, not the Indiana Pacers.
“People say that it’s a rivalry, but I don’t really see it,” Rose said before scoring 32 points in the team’s 103-98 win against the Pacers. “If anything, by probably in a year or two, it could become a rival. But right now, people say it’s a rival. … I just don’t see it right now.”
Asked specifically if he felt the Heat were the Bulls’ biggest rival, Rose acknowledged that to be the case.
“If you want say [that], yeah,” he said. “For sure, Miami.”
