“There’s nothing that we don’t have on this roster.”
“I feel so bad for him, man. I wish he could be here with us…We know that he belongs here. He’s just another athletic guard that can mix it up from the one and the two, that can guard full court, that can penetrate and dish…it’s tough not having D-Rose here, just having him around” – Kevin Durant
“He’s a fantastic player as we all know, so I just hope he’s taking his time and I know he wishes he could be here as we all do (for him to be here)” – Kobe Bryant
“He was working hard to be a part of this squad, so for him to not be here today, especially with the injury that he has, it saddens a lot of guys here because we know that D-Rose would have been a valuable piece to this team.” -Kevin Love
EDIT: It appears Nick Friedell may have took Lebron’s quote out of context when he posted it on his Twitter account with the misleading message “ Safe to say almost everyone wishes DRose were still with the team”. Hours after Friedell’s Tweet, he released an additional article with James’ full quote, and it appears he meant no harm. Really, Friedell?
