Where Rose will be playing is another story. He’s an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career after the Bulls traded him to the Knicks for Robin Lopez and Jerian Grant last June. The Knicks missed the playoffs and Rose averaged 18 points in 64 games. “I’m going into it with an open mind and will listen to everyone,” Rose said. “Last season sucked losing. But it was a great experience. I loved the guys that I played with and I loved the coaching staff. And who wouldn’t like playing in New York? It was great.”
But Rose said sitting in such a prominent spot in a building and sporting city he once owned and hearing those same cheers for someone else wasn’t weird at all. Even if that someone else represented a teammate as recently as last June. “If I was by myself, it might be a little bit weird. But I’m with him,” Rose said, pointing to P.J. “He makes it a lot easier. I look at it all that happened in the past. The memories will always be there. My heart is still here when I visit. I just love basketball, so I had to watch.”
