Derrick Rose Doesn't Care Much for Triangles
Unfortunately for the New York Knicks, they were the pre-determined sacrificial lambs in Cleveland on NBA opening night.
This 117-88 spanking wasn't particularly surprising and reinforced a myriad of Knicks issues, including Rose's contempt for the triangle offense.
However, the triangle is another matter.
It's not terribly surprising that Rose is struggling with these complexities, but in his defense, other players in New York have voiced their displeasure with the triangle in the past, including Carmelo Anthony.
Makes sense. He's no Michael Jordan, and neither is Rose.
In addition, D-Rose missed most of the pre-season, dealing with that nauseating civil rape trial, which included photos of Rose with various jurors.
Hope you didn't just eat.
The point is, the time spent extracting himself from that legal mess would've been better utilized working on a new offense with new teammates.
Rose seemed flummoxed as to his team's performance after the game, apparently unaware that he now plays for the Knicks.
So dude's delusional, as well.
