07:20 AM ET 11.05 | At least to this point of the season, there seems not to be anything close to The Rose Rules, and it's clear Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau is upset Derrick Rose isn't getting more calls. Rose, who has shot just 28.8 percent (15 of 52) from the field through the first three games, has been to the free throw line just 10 times. After initially declining to answer a question as to why Rose hasn't gone to the line more, Thibodeau paused before giving his opinion. "I'll say this," Thibodeau said. "I don't know anyone who drives as hard as he does, nor as fast as he does. I think sometimes he's penalized for being a nice guy. I'll leave it at that." For his part, Rose has tried to take his recent struggles in stride. "I can't complain about it," he said. "It's just the way the game is going."

I thought Rose kept yapping about better and stronger he is. This is what you get when you yap too much. I keep saying to let your game do the talking instead of yapping away.

Rose should never have won the MVP award, LBJ was/is better but the league did not want to give it to LBJ for 4+ consecutive years. Rose still can't shoot from outside of 15 feet and that makes teams guard his driving which should translate to less free throws.

The League decides the MVP? Check again.

Rose can't shoot, end of story. Now if he cannot get calls, then he simply cannot score either.

Part of Thibs job is to work the officials, media and whoever else he needs to in order to put his team, and its' players, in the best position when they are on the floor. That's all this is. Relax. This also isn't a new story. Thibs and Rose complained about his lack of getting foul calls back in the early spring of 2012. Rose was fined for what he said.

Also, Rose will be fine. He has had a "bad" three game stretch (which included a game winner). Chill. He won't shoot 30% from the field all season. So much overreaction all the time.

Would have been okay if he didn't yap too much before the season started. He is better, stronger, jump higher, and can shoot 3 pointers...ya right

He should just let his game do the talking...
