I doubt MJ would even acknowledge Derrcik Rose if the two met on the street.
"I'm very happy for him," Michael Jordan told ESPNChicago.com via text. "The Bulls deserve an All-Star. [Rose] is a very special player."
When asked about Jordan's remarks during a teleconference, Rose said with a smile, "I wish I could have recorded that conversation."
"For him to say that, that's crazy right there," Rose continued. "I was just amazed he even knew my name when I first met him. He's a legend in the game of basketball, in the NBA and in Chicago. For him to say that it means a lot."
