The Chicago Sun-Times put out an exclusive article today that claims Derrick Rose is aware of "growing tension" with the Bulls organization.
Team owner Jerry Reinsdorf was understandably less than thrilled with the story. Here's his official statement on the matter:
"I am confounded by the irresponsible report in the Chicago Sun-Times suggesting there is anything approaching discord or confusion between the Bulls executive office, coaching staff, and Derrick Rose or any other Bulls player. To the contrary, I can remember no time when the organization has been any more focused, optimistic, and cohesive. I've got to assume suggestions otherwise are intended to undermine the goals and objectives, spirit, and reputation of the Chicago Bulls. I am deeply disappointed that unnamed sources and totally inaccurate statements and assumptions can be used to foment nonexistent friction. The report is totally without basis or fact. It is pure malicious fiction."
I think we can safely assume that Reinsdorf won't be granting the Sun-Times any exclusive interviews any time soon. We'll keep you posted with all the latest on Derrick Rose's situation in Chicago, which is either perfect or considerably less-than-perfect, depending on which story you choose to believe.
