Derrick Rose thinks Carmelo Anthony is one hell of a basketball. That fact alone still won’t get Rose to pick up the phone and make a call.
Rose told Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports that he loves Melo’s game, but will not recruit him.
Rose told Yahoo Sports on Sunday that he doesn’t plan to recruit Anthony – or any free agent, for that matter – even though he likes Anthony’s game and thinks they can play alongside each other.
Rose’s reason is simple: He said it’s “not his job.”
“My thing is if they want to come, they can come,” Rose said.
Rose says he respects Anthony’s game and believes they can co-exist.
“I love Melo’s game,” Rose said. “He’s a great player. Takes the game serious. He’s consistent. He shoots the ball great. I love his heart.
“I can play with anybody, no matter who it is. I believe I can play with anyone if they step on the court with me.”
