Bulls PG Derrick Rose Angry With Hard Fouls

Monday April 16th, 2012

Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose is angry with the way some players are fouling him too hard, according to ESPN.

"I'm sick and tired of people trying to take cheap shots at me. You got to say something." Rose said to reporters after the 100-94 win over the Detroit Pistons.   The play which irritated Rose most against the Pistons was when he drove to the rim and was hammered by Pistons power forward Charlie Villanueva.

As a result of the hard hit to Rose, Villanueva received a flagrant foul and a technical for arguing with the officials.  After arguing with Villanueva for a moment, Rose went to the sidelines for treatment on his nose from the Bulls athletic trainer. After the game, Rose, referring to a lack of foul calls in his favor, told reporters, "I've gotta be the only superstar in the league that's going through what I'm going through right now.  But I can't say too much about it."  Rose, who has missed 23 games this year because of various injuries, is averaging 22 points a game this season.
