Quote of the Day

16 Feb 2012

“He had two jobs [offered]. You can ask him. He was leaning toward one, and I grabbed him by the shoulders and said, ‘Are you kidding me?’ You get a chance to coach Derrick Rose, and you’re ­going to take another job? Are you nuts? We laugh about it now. They were ­offering him a longer deal and a bigger deal. I literally said, ‘If it’s a penny to go there and $10 million to go to the other place, I’m going with the penny. In the long run, you’ll be allowed to coach and allowed to win, which will allow you to coach more.’ He made a great choice.”
