Derrick Rose has had a busy summer so far and has moved all across the globe playing in exhibition games. And knowing Rose, he has likely spent five hours a day in the gym working to bring his three-point shooting to 40 percent.

He took some time off from his hard work to give an interview to Hoopshype.com, which you can see here. He talked about lots of topics, including Carlos Boozer and Tom Thibodeau, but the most interesting part was when he talked about the NBA championship. 

 

HoopsHype.com: Time has passed since you won the MVP trophy award. What are your feelings about it now?

DR: "It was great, but I’m not satisfied. I won’t be satisfied until I win a championship. I’m not satisfied at all. There’s not a doubt in my mind that I’m not going to win a championship. I’m going win multiple championships. It’s not a doubt in my mind."

Derrick Rose is known for being very humble and not the most outspoken player in the league. When he says something along these lines, people tend to step back and take notice. 

Judging by the comments on the Hoopshype.com page, some people have been likening this claim to something LeBron James would say. True, this is certainly a bold claim to make. But Derrick Rose's normal humble and honest statements to the media are much different then the things that come from LeBron James' mouth.

It's certainly a good thing Rose is confident. He believes in himself. He believes in his team and his coach. He's a pretty good predictor of things to come as well. A little more than a year ago, he said he would wanted to win MVP. Look how that turned out.

And if Rose says Chicago will win multiple championships, city hall should start planning the parades now.
