Knicks star Derrick Rose went AWOL before Monday’s 110-96 loss to the Pelicans, but was back with the team on Tuesday.
Derrick Rose has rejoined the team and has been fined. He is expected to be in uniform tomorrow in Philadelphia.
Now that we know he’s ok, we can share some of the funniest Twitter reactions after the Knicks, including coach Jeff Hornacek, revealed they didn’t know why the point guard didn’t show up to Monday’s game.
“There’s no market more important for us than Mexico, we already have discussions earlier (Saturday) about bringing other games here,” Silver said in a press conference before Saturday’s Spurs-Suns game in Mexico City. “But ultimately it will make more sense to bring more teams rather than just have two teams play each other for a single event to maybe bring multiple teams and to have some sort of midseason tournament, sort of like a round-robin tournament.”
Silver has become known for his ideas, big and small. He’s experimented with a 44-minute preseason game and is considering adopting a new playoff system that takes the best teams regardless of conference, among other visions.
“In terms of a franchise here in Mexico City, it is something to look at,” Silver said. “Obviously, it’s an incredible market with over 20 million people, the largest market in North America and, while we have no immediate Nike Elite Cheap Jerseys plans to expand, one of the things that we look at, it’s whether expanding will be additive to the league as a whole and clearly coming to Mexico City, not just because the population of the city but as a gateway to the New Cheap Jerseys rest of Latin America could potentially be very important for the league.”
Saturday’s Spurs-Suns game was the fifth regular-season game played in Mexico, which has hosted 24 NBA games since 1992.
