Derrick Rose is now $94 million richer, but at the Chicago Bulls' press conference today announcing the star's five-year max extension with the team, he was as soft-spoken and humble as he's been since stepping into the NBA.
Derrick Rose: "I’m tremendously blessed and I don’t take anything for granted." He added, "Mom, we finally made it." #Bulls— Chicago Bulls (@chicagobulls) December 21, 2011
Rose: "I never would have thought in a million years I’d sign a contract like this. ... Sometimes I think, why me?" #Bulls— Chicago Bulls (@chicagobulls) December 21, 2011
