On Tuesday, Rose eclipsed the 10,000-point mark for his career, and he got his 3,000th assist Friday night. “I probably won’t really fully understand until I get done playing,” Rose said of the milestones. “Even if I didn’t reach the 10,000 or the 3,000, I know my career and what my imprint is on the league. I know how much I meant to the game when I was in my prime, how much I changed the game. The accolades are cool, but I still have a lot left.” Added center Karl-Anthony Towns: “It just shows his determination and unwavering confidence in himself, and also just never quitting. Amazing player, amazing, person, very happy. If anyone has a great story to tell getting to 10,000 points he definitely has one.”
Alan Horton: Derrick Rose with some good insight into how things have changed under Ryan Saunders… “He’s made things very simple for us on the floor, modifying the offense and defense a little bit so that guys aren’t thinking too much and I think it’s helping. He’s given us a little more freedom, for the young guys to grow and the older guys to have a voice. He wants that input. He’s gonna call you to his room for meetings. He’s very, very approachable, let me just say that, he’s great.”
