Noah: We Win and Lose as Rose Goes
(Derrick) Rose wasn’t the only one who saw the performance coming. His teammate and good friend Joakim Noah wasn’t surprised at all that Rose came back with a vengeance.
“He came up huge like usual,” Noah said. “We’re not worried about that guy. He’s the ultimate competitor and he came to play tonight. He always does. We win and lose by that guy and most of the time we’re going to win.”
As far as this Bulls season is concerned, truer words haven’t been spoken. When Rose puts his mind to something he can do almost anything he wants on the basketball court. The key for the Bulls is that Rose is so beloved and admired by his teammates that they almost always follow his lead.
