The New York Knicks veteran guard Derrick Rose said he’s attempted to find the balance between mentoring young players such as McBride and Quentin Grimes and letting them figure things out on the court.
“When you’re placed in a position like that everybody’s talking to you. You’ve got the assistant, the head coach, you have the outsiders, your agent, your family members, your friends, everybody’s talking to them,” Rose said. “Q, he’s been starting, what, the last couple of games? Deuce, I think he is going to start tonight.
“So I don’t want to overload them with too much info. But things I do see in games I go up and tell them during the game. But never when we are off the floor, because they’re with a coach or obsessing over things themselves.”
