Rose raves about Thibs, admits disdain for Knicks' offense

Derrick Rose, just hours before the NBA trade deadline, was talking about the Timberwolves' head coach.

Derrick Rose doesn't like playing in the "The Triangle" offense the New York Knicks run. He loves playing in the pick-n-roll offense the Timberwolves run under Rose's former head coach, Tom Thibodeau.

We'll know within an hour or so if the two will be pick-n-rolling together again. For now, Rose isn't hiding his disdain for the Knicks' offense.

“It’s a different offense,’’ Rose said after Knicks shoot-around today, according to the New York Post. “As a point guard, you’re always in the corner and just got to play off reads and play that way. It’s new for everybody here. I get all my points off random baskets. Unless you see it go to the post, all the other stuff is just random basketball.’’

A Rose for Ricky Rubio swap has been widely reported for days, and it's still garnering major reports from well known reporters like Adrian Wojnarowski and David Aldridge as the 2 p.m. trade deadline quickly approaches.

Meanwhile, Rose is still raving about Thibodeau.

“Great coach — I haven’t had the time to think about the opportunity to play there,’’ Rose said, via thePost. “I’m here. We have a game today. He was a great guy, great coach. Learned a lot from him and won a lot when we were together.”

Stay tuned.
