Rose said Monday night that the league has yet to tell him anything about the award.
“Not yet. Still hearing from it,” he said. “But right now, I’m sorry to say that’s the last thing I’m thinking about. I’m sorry.”
“I think it’s great. I think he’s very well-deserving,” teammate Joakim Noah said. “I think it’s a situation where everybody knows it’s his. It’s not like somebody else deserves it. It’s for him and I’m happy for him, but there’s really no time to celebrate it right now. We’re in a dogfight against Atlanta.”
