He added that the former MVP’s situation has made an impact on him when it comes to games and startin and playing, but not in his overall season view. He will never put his small injuries ahead of the team, and if he could, he would even play injured.
Noah made an impersonal speech to the media when he explained few things about his teammates. He said that they are a team and this is something they see every day on different person in their matches and practice ground. Noah said that they are all in this together, and that they need each other. At the moment they need Derrick Rose, and that’s how it will be at the end of every day. The media turns everything around, and expects Rose, who just came from two hard operations and injuries, to be back on his feet abd present 100% on the field. Noah added that the media should calm down a bit, and it’s not the end of the world if Rose gets small injury. He will come back stronger, because that’s how he is.
