Derrick Rose says he’ll never recruit players to come to Chicago There is no question that this era of basketball is unlike any we’ve ever seen before. Thinks like social media, player’s brands and now recruiting has made the NBA transform into somewhat of a modern-day sports soap opera. But at least one player still has some old school roots in him and that is Derrick Rose. While Rose may have a large social media following and his own brand like every other superstar player, he refuses to involve himself with the trendy new “recruiting” aspect that many NBA players are associated with. Via Chicago Sun-Times: “I don’t think so,’’ Rose said when asked if he would start looking for help from another superstar to lighten his load. “I don’t think I will ever recruit. ‘‘If you’re a hooper and you know as a basketball player if you can play with someone, I don’t think it’s a problem with just coming to a team. . . . I’ll play with anyone. And I think I can play with anyone. But I’ll never recruit.’’ While it is refreshing to hear Rose say he’ll never recruit, he may want to reconsider that stance. Rose should want other elite players to come to Chicago and help him win a NBA championship or he may end up always going up against superior teams come playoff time. While the Bulls have a solid nucleus, it’s tough to overthrow teams that are stacked because of players joining alliances. Only time will tell if Rose will reconsider recruiting fellow NBA superstars. The post Derrick Rose: “I’ll never recruit” appeared first on Pass The Pill - Kings of Hoops.
