Rose Upset He’s Not Getting ‘Superstar’ Calls

Derrick Rose is one of the most humble big-time players that the NBA has ever seen. He goes about his business and doesn’t usually make too much noise. Until now that is. Apparently he’s upset that he is not getting the ‘superstar’ calls like he should. Somewhat of a surprising comment from him.

Rose, utilizing his typical attacking style of play, drove to the basket time and again against New York’s defense and while he went to the charity stripe nine times, he expressed his displeasure with the officiating afterwards. “I’ve got to be the only superstar in the league that’s going through what I’m going through right now,” he said, referring to his lack of free-throw attempts. “But I can’t say too much about it.”

“How many times did I shoot today? And I’m the point guard,” he said, before discussing his strategy to combat the problem. “Keep going hard and make them call it. Keep driving. Just try to put pressure on them. If anything, I was worried about my turnovers. […] “I could care less right now [about being fined by the NBA for his comments],” the Englewood native continued. “I want to continue to play the way I know how to play. I came in this league a driver. Nothing has changed. I’ll continue to play hard and try to win.”
