Derrick Rose’ Assessment Of Knicks Is Technically Right… Yet So Wrong

Derrick Rose’ confidence has never wavered. No, not one bit.

Almost two months after calling his New York Knicks one of two “super teams” in the NBA, the 2008 MVP has doubled down on his comments, saying– gasp– that the Knicks has a chance to go 82-0 this season.

“I think (the Knicks) have a chance to win every game, and in the league, that’s rare,” he told Yahoo! Sports.

No matter how you slice and dice Rose’ comments, it seemed like his belief on a 32-win team from last season is a little bit off the mark from reality. Technically, the Knicks has a chance to win every game before the season even started, but so does every other NBA team. Bottom line: It’s not that RARE, D-Rose.

Sure, a team with Rose, Brandon Jennings, Joakim Noah, Carmelo Anthony, and Kristaps Porzingis in it are probably in the upper tier of Eastern Conference right now but is it better than the Raptors or the defending champion Cavs? No freaking way.

So if Rose is simply talking about the Knicks’ chances, well he’s theoretically right. But if he meant, like what his previous “super team” comments would indicate, that his Knicks are a Warriors-level type of team right now, then that’s just so wrong.
