CHICAGO -- Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane said Saturday he was honored that Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose thought so highly of him.

Rose recently said Kane’s success had motivated him in his own career. Kane returned the compliments Saturday.

“A lot of people were sending messages about [what he said],” Kane said Saturday. “When you see that stuff, that’s pretty cool. He’s such a great athlete. He’s done so many great things on and off the court for the city of Chicago.”

Kane respects Rose’s game, but he also admires Rose as a person.

“What I like about him is his humble attitude,” said Kane, who lives in the same downtown Chicago building as Rose. “If you see his MVP speech from a couple of years ago, you can really see he cares about the people he’s closest to and cares about his family and the people away from the game. That’s what I like most about him. He’s got a positive attitude, always looking on the bright side.”

Kane has been rooting for Rose throughout his injuries and was hopeful Rose and the Bulls had a successful season.

“For some unfortunate things to happen to him, he’s still had a great career,” Kane said. “They seem like they have a pretty good team this year. Hopefully they can do some special things.”

ST. LOUIS -- Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose made it clear Friday that there’s a mutual respect between him and Chicago Blackhawks star Patrick Kane.

Rose and Kane will both look to put on a show at the Scottrade Center in the next few days as the Blackhawks and Bulls both happen to be in St. Louis at the same time. The Bulls play the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday and the Blackhawks face the St. Louis Blues on Saturday.

Kane, a basketball fan, has often spoken highly and been supportive of Rose over the years. Kane has attended a number of Bulls games.

Rose may not be as huge of a hockey fan and isn’t seen at many Blackhawks games, but Friday he sounded like someone who has seen Kane play enough to understand his ability.

“He’s a talent the way that he skates, how he is on the ice and the way he is able to play an aggressive game and still be productive in games,” Rose said after the Bulls’ shootaround Friday. “Even if the physicality of the game is a little bit more than he expects, he’s still able to play.”

Kane and Rose share a lot of the same fans because of their entertaining styles. The two players have also been linked together because they’re within a month of each other in age -- Rose turned 26 on Oct. 4 and Kane will turn 26 on Nov. 19 -- and both began their professional careers in Chicago at nearly the same time. Kane was a rookie in the 2007-08 season and Rose was one in the 2008-09 season.

Rose said he’s been following Kane’s career since early on and has even motivated by seeing what Kane has done with the Blackhawks.

“I think everybody knows Patrick Kane for what he did so young,” Rose said. “I know I’ve been hearing about him since we came in together. I’m a fan. He’s pushing me along with him. He’s pushing me.”

Kane and Rose also have something else in common -- the same building address. Both own condos in the Trump Tower in downtown Chicago. Rose said he rarely sees Kane, though.

“I live in his building with him and I see his mom more than I see him,” Rose said. “Who knows what he’s doing? You just know he’s doing something right. He getting where he’s supposed to be. Career-wise, he’s playing like he’s supposed to be.”

Day 6: Scoop's Odyssey: A perfect day

ESPNChicago.com writer Scoop Jackson is spending this week trying to prove that when it comes to sports, there is no city like Chicago.

Saturday

The day I decide not to go to see the Cubs is the day they decide to ball.

But when one has choices as one has today...

Option 1: Cubs vs. Reds
Option 2: Fire vs. FC (Toronto)
Option 3: White Sox vs. Mariners
Option 4: Wolves vs. Rampage
Option 5: Rush vs. Mustangs
Option 6: Bulls vs. Mavericks
Option 7: Blackhawks vs. Coyotes. Game 5

I don’t know if any other city in America can claim days like this on the calendar when it comes to professional sports. Seven teams all in action on one day.

Options.

So try doing this: Wake up at 5 a.m. to take youngest son to school on a Saturday because he’s in the band and the band is in a competition that starts at 7 a.m. Go back home. Take other son to driver’s education at another school at 10 a.m. Turn on WGN at noon to see what Cubs team is going to show up. Leave in the middle of the first inning to pick up kids. Return home, Cubs are winning 5-1. Find the Fire/Toronto match on TV. Scream “Goal!!!!!” 25 seconds into the match when the Fire score. Turn to White Sox game. Phil Humber looks good early. Go to get oil changed in the car. Come back, Humber still looks good. Leave home, head to United Center. Word is Derrick Rose might play. Get to UC, hear two words: Perfect game! Find out Rose is playing. Watch Bulls starting lineup start a game together for only the 13th time all season. Leave at halftime. Get home just in time for Game 5 puck drop. My son screams downstairs, “The Bulls are up by 10!” Go online to see Humber highlights. Text Kenny Williams. Check CN100 for Wolves update. They won. Eat dinner. Immerse myself into overtime No. 5. Goal! Text Blackhawks media relations coordinator for possible credentials to Game 6. Begin to write blog you are currently reading. Get response from Blackhawks: “See You Monday!”

The ability to watch, pay attention to or get locked into six professional games all in the same day? Unheard of. The chances of being a part of a day where the city you live in goes 7-0? Incredible. And, in the middle of it all, the 21st perfect game pitched in Major League history? Priceless.

We live for days like this. We live in Chicago because of days like this.

    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.”
