Rose Says Bulls Trying for ChampionshipCHICAGO (AP) - Bulls star Derrick
Rose says he believes the organization is trying to win a championship.
Rose, who's recovering from a torn ACL in
his left knee, says in a statement that management's goals "have been the
same as mine and that is to bring another championship to this city."
His comment comes after older brother
Reggie ripped the Bulls, telling ESPNChicago.com they don't have the talent to
compete for a championship and that their decision to stand pat before
Thursday's trade deadline could be a "big factor" in whether Derrick
returns this season from a knee injury.
Rose, who insisted he was speaking for himself, wondered why the Bulls made no
moves when "all roads to the championship lead through Miami."
