Bulls' Rose pulling for the Hawks

5/29/2010

Blackhawk fever has swept the city, and Derrick Rose is showing symptoms.

In an interview with ESPNChicago.com’s Scott Powers, Rose said he is a “big fan” of the Hawks.

Although he is on the bandwagon, the budding superstar is still picking up the nuances of hockey.

“I'm not a fan like that where I know the game, but I'm a Chicago sports' fan, period,” he said. “As long they're in Chicago and doing well, I'm going to be watching.”

As for his finals pick?

“The Blackhawks, man,” Rose said. “I think they can get them. They're a young team. They're playing with a lot of confidence right now. I'm looking for a sweep.”
