Frankly, I am tired of everyone talking about Derrick Rose, just wake me when he is on the court, so we can really see if he is better than ever. Durant, who was an offseason workout partner with Rose, said the Chicago Bulls star “looks better” with the start of training camp days away. “He’s been looking great,” Durant told Comcast SportsNet Chicago on Tuesday. “It was really good for him that he took the whole year off. “A lot of people criticized him for it and really were upset about him not playing, but it was the best thing for him. I can tell because he looks better.”
