Kobe’s career is really coming to an end and after he played in Chicago for the last time, he had some words for Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls. Much respect was dished out by Kobe and he had some great advice for the team:
“I think it’s important to remain patient,” Bryant said via ESPN.com. “I think what you’re seeing with this team is an adjustment period. Derrick is at a position in his career where he’ll have to adjust his game. And what I mean by that is start using his size a lot more instead of his speed and quickness and start going to the post a little bit more. But they have three tremendous players with Rose and [Jimmy] Butler and Pau [Gasol]. If they can figure out how to defend, I think this team can go very, very deep in the playoffs.”
With Kobe on his way out, he looks to continue giving advice to the current stars of this league now in hopes that they will pass on the blessing to the next generation.
The question we ask our fans is, do you agree with his statement of Derrick Rose needing to adjust his game? Fans may feel there are a lot deeper problems brewing in the Bulls front-office, the coaching staff, and the player injuries. It’s true the Bulls have a great team on paper, but their record reflects a much worse position. Ailing injuries have made it so the team has not had the full opportunity to play healthy together.
