Derrick Rose Invoked Don Draper’s Ice Cold Ruthlessness For His Return To Chicago

It’s been over a year since the final episode of Mad Men aired on AMC, but it will be a long, long time before we ever stop thinking about Don Draper’s legendary burn on Michael Ginsberg. “I don’t think about you at all” is as vicious as it is simple, and naturally it’s the first thing that came to mind when New York Knicks point guard Derrick Rose told the Post’s Marc Berman that he hasn’t been thinking about his return to Chicago on Friday.

Granted, Rose seemingly takes the high road in this conversation, giving his former team very little bulletin board material, and explaining, “Only when probably it’s game day, I’ll think about it. There’s no bad blood there either. I understand this is a business. They made a business decision. On my end, I just got to stay prepared.”

It is, of course, understandable that Rose has focused solely on his game and role with his new team after missing a chunk of training camp dealing with a civil rape trial. But we don’t really believe that he’s not thinking about the Bulls, do we? He calls it a “regular game,” while trying to pretend that it doesn’t mean anything that the Bulls have left his No. 1 unclaimed, with the recently injured Michael-Carter Williams deciding not to wear No. 1 after the Bulls initially offered it to him.
