After declining to talk about the subject on Wednesday, Derrick Rose finally addressed the mini controversy surrounding his decision not to go to New York on Tuesday to shoot an episode of the CBS show "The Good Wife."
"I talked to the producer today," Rose said before the Bulls played the New York Knicks at the United Center. "[I] just apologized to him. He said that it really wasn't anything that big."
Rose admitted that the attention the matter received caught him off guard.
"I never thought it would be like that," he said. "That whole atmosphere is totally different. I'm not the type of guy where I'd try to big time anyone or anything. It's not in my character as a person and I'm sorry I did it."
Rose said that when he agreed to shoot the cameo appearance, he had no idea what the circumstances would be. The Bulls played Monday night in Chicago and he didn't get to bed until about 2:30 a.m.
Rose overslept and the timing of going to and from New York didn't work out once he missed the early morning flight.
"The timing was messed up," he said. "They had me waking up at 6 o'clock for an 8 o'clock flight. That's kind of messed up. I told them that the timing would have to be different."
Rose, though, said he still may end up making an appearance on the show. "Hopefully, you'll probably see me in another episode," he said.
