Thursday Afterschool Special: Rose's Garden

Thursday June 23rd, 2016

Derrick Rose traded to Knicks

Roses aren't red anymore — they're orange and blue. The Bulls traded Derrick Rose to the Knicks yesterday in exchange for Robin Lopez, Jose Calderon and Jerian Grant. New York will also receive Justin Holiday and a 2017 second-round pick.

Rose, the youngest MVP in league history when he won in 2011 at age 22, will now play at Madison Square Garden alongside Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis. The Knicks also hope he will be joined by Kevin Durant, as Phil Jackson told Rose he would pursue the coveted superstar in free agency. Here's a throwback to perhaps his best play as a Bull:
