Derrick Rose's brother Reggie Rose doesn't think the Chicago Bulls are good enough to beat the Miami Heat right now. So, yesterday, he took his concerns to the media when he spoke to ESPN Chicago and ripped the Bulls organization for not pulling the trigger on any big moves before the NBA trade deadline.
"What have you pieced together?" he asked. "Have you made any moves? Have you made any trades to get better? You know all roads to the championship lead through Miami. What pieces have you put together for the physical playoffs? Joakim Noah is a great player. Luol Deng is a great player. But, you need more than that. You have to put together pieces to your main piece. The players can only do so much. It's up to the organization to make them better."
Shortly after Reggie's comments went public, D-Rose himself put out a statement distancing himself from his brother's opinion.
"I have always felt that the Bulls organization's goals have been the same as mine," the statement said, "and that is to bring another championship to this city."
And, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau also reiterated the Bulls' commitment to getting better and, more importantly, to getting Rose healthy again. So, maybe Reggie should stick to focusing on that instead of trying to play GM for his brother's team.
