Yep, this one is true. Taken from Sam Smith's
Coach K impressed by Rose
-- Krzyzewski also said he’s impressed with what he’s seen of Derrick Rose after Rose played against the 2008 team last summer.
“Derrick’s a much better player now,” said Krzyzewski. “Vinny (Del Negro) and his staff have done a great job with him. I don’t think the NBA gets credit with the amount of teaching they do. With Derrick you can see the maturity. I’ve talked to him about his shooting and he said, ‘Coach, I know I have to get better. I work every day.’ I said, ‘Your defense has been better.’ And there’s his commitment. I watch the NBA game a lot during the year. In trying to get to know these guys I talk to them. I said to Derrick, ‘You were a rookie who never hit the wall. How did that happen?’ He said, ‘I play basketball. That’s all I did.’ He said, ‘You hit the wall if you are doing other things.’ I think that shows his passion and love for the game.”
First, the NBA SUPERstar Luol Deng thing, now the Vinny del Novice actually does something news happens
AMAZING, Derrick Rose improved because of his talent and pure will alone. Vinny doesn't have to get a credit. God, I get irritated everytime Vinny is associated with a news about the Bulls. Earlier i saw a post containing Vinny's quote thet read something like, the starting line up isn't fixed yet, and they are going to continue playing the small ball. Then what the fuck is the point of letting Ben Gordon go then? Isn't this upcoming season's focus is DEFENSE? If this is really Derrick's team, then Jerry Reinsvoldemort should hire a coach that will teach him something, and will arm him different weapons on the floor, so that he can reach his full potential. Not just a guy who is pretending to be a head coach. Come on Vinny, I know you are a good man, but don't do this, resign now. You are only hurting yourself, the team, and us fans. Reinsvoldemort does not even acknowledge you. Please, step down.
