From the bulls site.

Aside from his rehab, Rose has kept close tabs on his team’s offseason moves. He spoke glowingly of the decision to bring back Kirk Hinrich, with whom he played for two seasons before Hinrich was traded to Washington on the night of the 2010 NBA Draft.

“I got my dog back,” Rose said of Hinrich. “I think at the time, I was a little bit too young to appreciate him. Now, knowing what kind of player he is, as well as the type of person that he is—he’s a guy who wants to win. You’ve got to go with that, if anything. I’m the same way where I want to win at everything. So I know that I’m going to have somebody back there who is going to be fighting with me.”
He really likes Kirk. I hope the reunion works out. And I wonder what he means by not having appreciated him...

What did you expect him to say? I am sure he said that about John Lucas, Watson, and other former Bulls.

my guess is kirk's versatility made the game easier for him

and kirk's tenacity while not always fun to play against in practice , was probably missed when he was gone.
