A few weeks ago, Derrick Rose caused a bit of a stir when he said that some people put the New York Knicks in the same “Super Team” class as the Golden State Warriors. In an interview published earlier this week from Seoul, South Korea, Rose expanded on those comments and explained that they stemmed from confidence in himself and his team.
“I still believe that,” Rose said. “Like I said, with that Super Team term, you have to be very careful, I guess, if you’re in the United States. But I feel like if you’re in any team in the NBA — it don’t have to be the NBA, it could be the college level, high school level — you should believe in yourself and have the confidence in yourself that you’re playing on a super team anywhere. So I have a lot of confidence, and I’m not taking that back.”
