Derrick Rose doesn't just play ball in Chicago. He's also from there, and he lives there year round. So, over the course of the last couple days, he's been keeping a close eye on the Chicago Public Schools teachers strike that's taking place right now. And, last night on Twitter, he let it be known that he is not happy with the way that the strike is being handled. Here's what he had to say:

D-Rose isn't a guy who usually says a whole lot about, well, anything. But, good for him for taking a stand on this issue. Will it help bring the strike to an end? Uh, no. But, it will make it a relevant issue for a whole lot of people out there who weren't paying attention to it before. Way to put on for your city, man.
