He's right about one thing... even bad defenders can improve overall team defense if they would just communicate with their teammates.

Re: Derrick Rose voices frustration with the team

Maybe I missed something, I don't see what Rose said that's so controversial. He is mad...GOOD, maybe he'll wake the hell up and play like it. Rose has been awful on defense all season, and inconsistent on offense.

More importantly, he didn't single out his teammates and his comments refer to the team, which I assume he is including himself in that discussion (as pointed out, his use of the term "we"). It'd be one thing if he said "Pau isn't doing X", or even if he said "our frontcourt isn't doing X", but he didn't even get that specific.

I also think his teammates respect him just fine. Players don't think like fans. Fans understandably are frustrated with Rose. His teammates know how hard he's worked to get here and were supportive of his decision to sit out.

Rose has essentially announced that he's back to being invested in his team.

Good.

Re: Derrick Rose voices frustration with the team

I see no problem with these comments. These guys were saying all the right things prior, "I need to do more of this and this" blah blah. Rose essentially put pressure on himself and the team to perform and they have done so admirably since. Everyone including himself have finally dedicated themselves on the defensive end
