Derrick Rose has heard the critics and is preparing to be at his best for New York’s opening game against the defending champions in Cleveland.
“I feel like I’m not done,” Rose said. “It’s a new start. I feel rejuvenated, and when you put all that together, when I step on the floor, I really don’t know what to expect.

"I think a lot of times we have a tendency to dislike each other on the court. ... We've got to be able to put that to the side," Wall, the 2010 No. 1 overall pick, told Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic.

I was playing reckless, and I was just ballin'. I had raw talent," Rose said in an interview with The Vertical. "Now, with the No. 25, I think you'll see a more mature player. You'll see the player that you saw toward the end of last year. More under control-type of game, and I got a lot more options now this year. That No. 1 will always be engraved in me, and it's not going anywhere. Twenty-five is just a new step, and a new step in the right direction."
