  • At least one person unhappy with the lack of moves made on Thursday Reggie Rose, the brother and manager of Derrick Rose. Scott Powers of ESPN Chicago has details: “Derrick Rose’s brother and manager, Reggie Rose, said Thursday that the franchise hasn’t put enough quality players around the Chicago Bulls star to win a championship and that could be a “big factor” in whether he returns this season from a knee injury Reggie Rose said he was speaking for himself and not his brother. “What have you pieced together? Have you made any moves? Have you made any trades to get better? You know all roads to the championship lead through Miami,” Reggie Rose told ESPNChicago.com. “What pieces have you put together for the physical playoffs? ”Joakim Noah is a great player. Luol Deng is a great player. But you need more than that. You have to put together pieces to your main piece. The players can only do so much. It’s up to the organization to make them better.”
Statement from D. Rose: "I've always felt Bulls organization’s goals have been same as mine & that's to bring another championship to city.”

  • Jermaine O’Neal will finish the season with the Suns and explained the reason, from Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today: “O’Neal was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat in January, and his 13-year-old daughter, Asjia, will undergo heart surgery in early March. “I have a tough situation coming up with my daughter,” O’Neal told The (Phoenix) Arizona Republic last week. “She’s having heart surgery in Boston on March 5. She has a leaky valve that has to be corrected because her body is having to work too hard. She is having chest pains. “For me, it’s one thing after another. … Every time I think about basketball, real life tends to talk to me a little bit. My focus is to finish my job and what I signed up to do.”
  • The Knicks traded Ronnie Brewer to make room for Kenyon Martin, according to Al Iannazzone of Newsday: “The Knicks made a small move before the trade deadline, opening a roster spot for another big player: Kenyon Martin. With Marcus Camby and Rasheed Wallace still out with foot injuries, the Knicks want insurance up front and will sign Martin to a 10-day contract. General manager Glen Grunwald said he hopes the veteran power forward will remain with the Knicks for the rest of the season. “Kenyon is more than just a big man,” Grunwald said on aconference call. “We think he’s a very versatile defender that can guard at least three positions. We’re looking forward to adding a good defender who can help us in our quest this season.”
  • Tyson Chandler provided the cold truth about the status of the Knicks and their defense, from Iannazzone: “Tyson Chandler had some choice things to say after the Indiana game, but probably put it best when he said: “We’re fooling ourselves if we think we’re going to get somewhere playing this kind of defense” The Pacers scored 125 points. It’s been an ongoing thing. The Knicks are not nearly the defensive team they were earlier in the season. Maybe Kenyon Martin helps.”
  • Mike Woodson was still upset with the play of J.R. Smith and the team a day after getting clobbered by the Pacers, from Iannazzone: “One day later, Mike Woodson still was unhappy with the way the J.R. Smith and the team as a whole performed in Indiana. “I’m not happy about how we played number one and two how we carried ourselves professionally on the basketball court,” Woodson said. “We can’t do that. I’m not going to tolerate that.” Smith got into it with Lance Stephenson and was thrown out in the third quarter. Raymond Felton and Amar’e Stoudemire also were whistled for technical fouls.”

  1. As for Derrick Rose’s brother, I think Derrick should look to put a muzzle on him. I understand his brother taking up for him, but this is stupid.
