  5. It's only been a few months since Derrick Rose left the Windy City for the Big Apple, but he's not looking backward.The Knicks guard says he hasn't given Hassan Whiteside Jerseys much thought to facing his old team, and probably won't until the two teams meet Chris Paul Jerseys up in Chicago Friday night. “I haven’t been thinking about it, man,’’ Rose told the Golden State Warriors Jerseys New York Post . “Only when probably it’s game day, I’ll think about it. There’s Karl Anthony Towns Jerseys no bad blood there either. I understand this is a business. They made a business Lebron James Jerseys decision. On my end, I just got to stay prepared.”Rose has averaged 15 points and Moncler Jackets two assists through two games in 2016-17, matchups against the Cavaliers and Grizzlies. The former Custom NCAA Jerseys top pick who spent nearly a decade playing for his hometown Bulls said, as far as he's concerned, it's another game on the schedule, even though he'll have a big audience of family and friends. “Friends and family are going to come,’’ Rose said. “They’re Ricky Rubio Jerseys going to support. It’s just going to be a regular game for me. People are making it a big thing because of the trade and me being from there and being traded here. Brook Lopez Jerseys I can’t think that far down the line because we have this back-to-back.’’

It was one experience of many on James' sports bucket Demar DeRozan Jerseys list. He relayed the rest of it to reporters on Friday, ahead of Game 3 Cleveland Cavaliers Jerseys
