Chicago Bulls Star Derrick Rose GETS SEXY For May 2012 GQ Cover, Talks Becoming The Next MJ & HATING Celebrity Status

Derrick Rose is 23-years-old, mature (despite the fact he recently got caught up in an alleged groupie/baby mama scandal), sexy & extremely talented.  The Chicago Bulls star has taken on the task of filling Chi-Town's Michael Jordan void...something he says he has no issue with attempting. 

 

Now, Mr. Rose is covering the May 2012 issue of GQ magazine, and revealing all from avoiding LeBron's mistakes to hating his celebrity status....

 

The Chicago native, who signed a $95 million contract, poses on the GQ men's magazine cover in a sleek sheen suit and tee while holding one of his most prized possessions.

Reigning league MVP Derrick Rose, who has a homes in the Trump building in Chicago as well as in the Northbrook area (closer to the Bulls training facility) and a HUGE $250 mill 14-year Adidas deal, helped the Bulls become one of the best teams in the NBA last season and this season....so it's only right we get to know the man who's causing chicks who allege to be his girlfriend to create scandals to have his baby.

Here's a few highlights from D. Rose's cover story:

On being compared to Michael Jordan: “…His titles drive me. What’s wrong with getting close to the best person that ever played the game? I’m not scared of him; if anything, it makes me work harder when I do train.”

On the attention he receives for his playing: “The more you win, the more they come. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t take anything for granted. But it seems like the better I play, the more attention I get. And I can’t get away from it. You play great, you get attention. But I hate attention. It is weird. I’m in a bind.”

On LeBron’s infamous on-air decision to go to the Heat: “I won’t ever put myself in a bad position so that people can say bad things about me. I make smart decisions... I’m very mature for 23 years old, and I know that whatever I do can hurt someone.”

On the people of Chicago treating him like a star: “Chicago isn’t used to stardom. …They don’t know how to act toward celebrity. So I always have someone with me. I can have a hat on, glasses on, whatever. People still notice me. If I go outside without a hat on, I feel like I’m naked. This life doesn’t fit my personality.”

On feeling like a recluse: “It gets on my nerves that I can’t just go out. It’s just boundaries now, people are like, ‘You can’t go here, you can’t go there, you got to let that person know where you’re going.’ It’s just weird. I’m never alone. Ever.”

On Obama being a fan of his: “I remember when he wasn’t our president, when I was a kid, when he’d just be walking down the street, a state senator. He was just always there. I didn’t appreciate it then. I was in high school and just wanted to see rappers.”

Check out more pics and the full cover story now over at GQ.  And pick up the issue on newsstands April 24th.

It's not that people don't

It's not that people don't know how to act about celebrities in Chicago. It's that he's one of the few that's still in this city. So of course people are going to want to walk up to him, and start a conversation with him.

If his girlfriend is pregnant how do we know she is 7.5 months? The tweet never said anything about how far along she was.

When Lebron made his decision

When Lebron made his decision he was thinking about the kids from the boys and girls club. UNLIKE Derrick Rose he acts like his $ hi+ don't stink Lebron is always trying to find a way to give back. Derrick Rose acts like his is better then everyone. Lebron is a better person and player then Derrick Rose.

So confused to why Lebron was

So confused to why Lebron was brought up in this interview! Rose is a good player but he seems to be very sneaky! I would not be surprised if two yrs from now he is involved in some drama

Love D.Rose! My #2. Kobe will

Love D.Rose! My #2. Kobe will always be my #1! But Derrick reps Chi-Town really well and it doesn't hurt that he's led his team to the best record in the NBA for two consecutive years. Nice cover! He cleans up nicely.

Derrick Rose would never

Derrick Rose would never "wish" to be Lebron. What ignorant comments. The kid is good, if you know basketball and got off Lebron's balls (Just like Wade) you would know that too. Bron is good, but so is Rose. That's a fact.
