06:50 AM ET 02.22 | With a brief statement released through the team, Derrick Rose tried to distance himself from comments made by his older brother/manager, Reggie, to ESPN Chicago on Thursday. "I have always felt that the Bulls organization's goals have been the same as mine, and that is to bring another championship to this city," Derrick Rose said 30 minutes before the game against the Miami Heat. Reggie Rose had said that the Bulls' lack of activity could be a big factor in whether Rose returns from knee surgery this season. Bulls vice president John Paxson, along with general manager Gar Forman, grabbed Rose in the hallway of the United Center right after his shootaround and brought him into a room for a talk that lasted nearly 10 minutes. When Rose came out, he had no comment and promised that a statement was forthcoming. Despite the statement, there was still a cleanup job in progress because of Reggie Rose's comments.

I gotta say, it is really annoying how cheap our team owners are, I mean we don't do ANYTHING! They are a top 5 team as far as revenue, yet don't spend at all.
