In a game the final week of the season, when the Chicago Bulls beat the Orlando Magic, Derrick Rose was doing the standard, cliché-filled post-game television interview when Jameer Nelson interrupted to congratulate him.

The exchange included Nelson telling Rose “see you in the second round.”

Except, the Magic never got to the second round, due to the Atlanta Hawks.

But in case Nelson wanted to see Rose in the second round, the Atlanta Hawks left two tickets for Nelson at the United Center Monday night. Hawks spokesman Arthur Triche did it, the Associated Press reports.

The tickets went unclaimed.

But nice little dig.

    This reminds me of game 7 between the Sixers and Celts back in the day. Who’d Katz have tickets waiting for him? None other than a certain Skibby MaRue. True story.
