The Bulls' superstar Derrick Rose revealed in a recent interview that though he loves winning, he hates the attention that comes with it:

“The more you win, the more they come,” Rose told GQ in the May cover story. “Don’t get me wrong. I don’t take anything for granted. But it seems like the better I play, the more attention I get. And I can’t get away from it. You play great, you get attention. But I hate attention. It is weird. I’m in a bind.”

It's no surprise to anyone to see Derrick Rose say that as a superstar, attention isn't his favorite thing. Saying that he hates attention is a bit much and not really credible. As a basketball player, attention is all you get when you are successful. He has received a lot of attention from being a high school All-American, the number 1 pick of the NBA draft to becoming the youngest MVP in the league. If he hated attention, he probably would not be where he is today. I understand that too much attention can get to his nerves though.

If attention is such a hassle, why pose in tight clothes for GQ Magazine?

well we can never tell what people are thinking. although ive been asking the same question. im still a fan of derrick rose no questions asked but i guess this interview will be controversial. but if you're a celebrity, its hard to have privacy so i guess i could understand his part.
