While brand new Chicago Bulls guard Anthony Morrow did not play in his first game with the team, a 128-121 overtime victory against the Phoenix Suns, he still managed to make waves and draw the attention of fans. Unfortunately, it wasn’t in a good way.

Morrow received some heat from loyal Bulls fans for his choice to don the number one on his jersey, due to the fact that number is associated with former Bulls MVP Derrick Rose.

Well Morrow heard the fans loud and clear, and gave this response on Twitter:

The former Oklahoma City Thunder guard chalked it up to an honest mistake and has decided to wear a different number going forward — though his new number is yet to be announced. He wore the number two in Oklahoma City, which is currently taken by Bulls starting point guard Jerian Grant.

Morrow came to Chicago in Thursday’s trade which saw the Bulls sending forwards Doug McDermott and Taj Gibson to the Thunder in exchange for Morrow, Cameron Payne, and Joffrey Lauvergne. None of the new Bulls played Friday night against the Suns, but Payne is expected to play tonight.
