The NBA All-Star Game introductions featured a musical act by Nicki Minaj and enough smoke and lights to make Space Mountain look like a kids ride. Most of the All-Stars were enjoying the atmosphere and danced around like the rockstars they were made out to be. Derrick Rose was not one of them.
Just like his coach, Tom Thibodeau, Rose did not jump around like a kid at a concert. Instead, he had a focused look during intros and just waved his arm to acknowledge the crowd. He looked like a man ready for business and explained Sunday he didn’t think the dancing was appropriate.
“I can dance,” Rose said after Sunday night’s All-Star Game. “But there’s a time and place for that and I don’t think it was right, then and there.
“I don’t care,” Rose said when told fan’s noticed he wasn’t dancing like LeBron James or Dwight Howard. “You just know that’s me, man. If you would have saw me out there dancing, you would have been looking at me different. I’m just me. I can’t be anybody else
