Players new to Chicago accuse Rose of false modesty. Then they get to know him. "There's no one in the league like this," says Noah. Rose lives with his roommates in a three-bedroom town house north of Chicago. He drives his pickup. He hates to spend. He likes to have money around for friends in need. This season he released his first signature shoe, but not before he gave instructions to Adidas's vice president of global basketball, Lawrence Norman: The shoe had to be versatile enough to wear with pants as well as shorts, so people wouldn't have to buy a second pair. "He takes pride in being normal," says assistant coach Rick Brunson.

Its always refreshing to hear about professional athletes with their feet on the ground. This kid could be a role model.

Good read. He seems like a class act. Not wasting all his money on stupid things.

I think the Bulls, if healthy, are better than the Heat, I really do. I also think James as really, really stupid NOT to choose Chicago this off-season.
