Rose not exactly overjoyed by honor

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Derrick Rose was named the NBA's Eastern Conference player of the month on Friday. It's the first time he's won that honor, but the award didn't exactly have Rose jumping for joy.

"Everybody was texting me saying what happened or whatever," Rose said before Game 1 of the Bulls' first-round series with the Cleveland Cavaliers. "It's alright, but, hopefully, one year I want to be the best player in the league.

"That's fine, though. But it didn't get me excited."
