Rose is yet to play a score of games for the New York Knicks, but he is already looking at having a long-term career with the club.
Rose, a free agent this summer, said in a recent interview, “Of course I want to play the rest of my life [in New York].”
Rose expressed that sentiment when discussing his overall experience with the Knicks in an interview Thursday with Slam magazine.
“We’re building the culture,” Rose said in the interview. “We’re building the foundation now. I’m under a one-year contract so of course I want to play the rest of my life here. But it takes time, it takes patience to figure out how every one is going to fit, if it is going to fit and going from there.”
“I love the atmosphere (in New York), I love the environment, I love the staff here, I love the team,” he said. “… My job is to come out here and play as hard as I can and try to win every game while I’m on the floor. But as far as my future and everything, who knows? I’ll have to wait until the end of this year and figure things out but I would love to be here, though.”
The PG is averaging 16.8 points, 4.8 assists and 4.2 rebounds through 19 games.
