Rose uncomfortable with his fame

Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose admits the celebrity status that goes along with being biggest star in his hometown makes him uncomfortable and "doesn't fit my personality."

"Sometimes it's too much," Rose told GQ Magazine in a story posted on its website Tuesday. "Chicago isn't used to stardom.

So I always have someone with me. I can have a hat on, glasses on, whatever. People still notice me. If I go outside without a hat on, I feel like I'm naked."
