Word out of the Chicago Bulls’ shootaround today is that Derrick Rose will not play tonight against the Miami Heat. However, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t the topic of much discussion today, as you’ll see in a minute.
Rapper Waka Flocka Flame tweeted this yesterday:
Now, again, as we just said, that’s not true. But reporters still had to ask, so…well, just watch.
Yep, that is in fact a group of mostly old white dudes talking about Waka Flocka Flame. K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune called it a career highlight.
Johnson then went on to produce this in his report from the shootaround:
Rose seemed flattered by that recognition and Thibodeau, who probably only listens to rap if it’s spliced into his game film, tried to keep a straight face in saying he knew of Waka Flocka Flame.
Best. Shootaround. Ever.
