Video: Derrick Rose tells his mom “We finally made it”

Dec 21, 2011, 3:11 PM EDT

Derrick Rose was everything a Bulls fan — everything a true fan of the game — could hope for in the press conference announcing his new five year, $94.8 million contract extension. He was humble. He was emotional with his mother. He was classy. He talked about the love of he game not the money. He talked about winning.

Watch this and I dare you not to love Rose just a little bit more.

Thanks to for the video.

      Seven minutes to come up with this joke? Maybe you shouldn’t be questioning the intelligence of others.

        Came up with the joke immediately. Took a few minutes to look up the Simpsons episode that “Pulling a Homer” was coined. The episode took place like 20 years ago. Other than that, it was pretty much right away. Give me a break bro.
