He better get on his knees and clear that up!!! He knows better... And if he did say it, nice to see him backpedal and show respect, admiration and fear for Rose. That little *****.

lol. Rose seems real popular on this forum, and not just Bulls fans like to talk about him, apparently.

Only on PSD can a great young player be unanimously hated despite constantly remaining humble.

Why is he denying something he said? You shouldn't be afraid for trash talking another player, especially when you tell the truth.

Probably because he has to deal with Bulls psychos on Twitter.

Don't really see what the problem is. Rose can't play defense and Andre Miller proved it by lighting him up

if he is backtracking its because people completely take the quote out of context, as evident by the Bulls fans on here. Unfortunately you have to take a statement and dumb it down so that people don't blow up about it.

In this case, its easiest to dumb it down by saying he was misquoted.

What does Rose have to say about this? I doubt much of anything...which is what Bulls fans should be doing too since its making something out of nothing.

He denied it 1 because hes a *****..2 he knows its not true...3. he knows next year Rose will come light Portlands *** up...Thats why...no real G backpedals off a statement he believes is true and it wasnt flaming slander. He got a win and let his mouth leash go...he was tired of Chicago busting their ***...he was mad A clearly Slower tired Rose crossed him left and 2 handed buggy whipped him. Batums a good defender but even he knows Drose is top 5 and he wants none,and even with his "Lock Down Defense" He still cant guard him,and he knows that if they play again he will have to put up or stfu.

Thats funny coming from someone with the screen name of one of the all time worst defensive point guards. lol It also doesnt say much for Andre Miller because he didnt have the balls to even guard Rose. They put their best defender on him and he still scored 36. With Miller on him he would have gone for 50. Yes Miller had a good game, the whole Blazers team did. They shot like 65% from the field or something crazy like that. Thats just the NBA. Teams get hot! Last time we played them we shot over 70%, blew them out and Deng scored 40. Where was Batums sorry ***** defensively that game? He was guarding Deng!!!! So I seriously doubt he's popping off at the mouth. If he is about a legitimate MVP candidate thats hilarious...... i mean hes Batum!!! lol

Steve Nash is bad at defense, when have I said otherwise?

Miller is bad at defense, who has said otherwise?

There's a difference between someone being hot and someone scoring on a bad defender at will.

HMMMM lets see.....last time they played Miller had 7 pts. Wonder why he didnt score on that "bad" defender at will that game???

Maybe its because he just got hot last night!!!

Rose is far from a bad defender! Hes not great but hes good and will continue to get better. Ask the great defender Rondo how bad Rose is at defense. He dominated Rondo on both sides of the ball the entire 7 game series as a rookie. Everyone has a bad game once in awhile. The Blazers were just on fire! Plain and simple.

I don't think people on here actually hate Derrick Rose. They just hate that a lot of Bulls fans overrate him and rejoice him all the time. Ironically, many of these people do the same thing concerning their own team, but it obviously gets more attention with Rose because there are so many Bulls fans. If people actually do hate Rose, it is completely unjustified IMO because he hasn't really done anything wrong and probably one of the nicest guys in the league.

Come on people.

Do you want me to bring up Miller's averages vs other PGs (even Rondo and Celtics) and vs Rose???

He has his worse averages vs Rose and Bulls than most of these other PGs that supposedly be better defenders.

1- game doesn't mean jack and besides that it was the entire Bulls' team defense sucked yesterday. If #1 defensive team can have a bad game, why can't a good defender have a bad game???

Happens to best of them. But when it happens to Rose, it's hatred boiling over. :facepalm:

Boozer was the one who was lost and screwing everything up. Miller scored like 6 points off free throws becuase we kept fouling at the end to come back... ********! if it wasn't for that he wouldve had what 18 points WOW what a game lol

so when rondo gets randomly lit up, it means rondo is a bad defender......good logic.

not saying rose is great at D, but he has his strengths and one is he has good perimeter D because he has make up speed. his post D is what is weak, and that is what miller took advantage of. he just posted rose up the entire game. we will probably start seeing more players posting rose up, but once noah is back, it will provide more of a safety net for rose.

And last time they played, Roy was playing. Remember, Andre Miller is more of a pure PG than a point guard that hogs the ball.

There is also a difference between a player being hot, and a player having his way with his defender.

Rondo is still weak in man to man defense. And Rose came nowhere near Rondo in the 7 game series.
