But it seems everybody is getting rewarded with monster contracts these days in the NBA’s free agency, and Rose told the Daily News that his humble upbringing has made it impossible to ignore the mega-deals distributed to guys like Mike Conley Jr. ($153 million). Even if it’s not his top priority. “See it here and there but it doesn’t drive me anymore. Like I always been driven by playing basketball and wanting to be the best. Like (money) numbers, of course you got to know it because of how I grew up,” Rose told the News. “I grew up around the streets. Hustling. You see numbers, you can’t look over them. But I’m just happy that I have an opportunity for them to see how I perform and let them see what I’m worth.”
