I recently caught up with 2008-09 Rookie of the Year (and NBA 2K Draft Combine cover boy) Derrick Rose for a friendly game of simulated hoops, via NBA 2K10.

While we played, I also had the chance to chat with Chi-Town's finest about his gaming skills, his love of the 2K franchise, and more. Check it out!

Oh... I beat Rose, btw. 18-14 (it was a shortened game). Yeaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!

 

SIKIDS.com: How did you feel when you found out you were on the cover of the 2K Draft Combine download?
Derrick Rose: It’s an honor. When I was younger I used to always play. So I’m a pretty dedicated gamer. All my friends play. So to be on the cover, it’s great. I remember when NBA 2K was on Dreamcast!

SIKIDS.com: Do you play a lot with teammates?
Derrick: Nah. I play with friends mostly. Or anyone that comes over to the house.

SIKIDS.com: Do you ever play with friends online?
Derrick: I played online one time. My friends, they just come over when I’m in town. Or we’ll all go to another friend’s house. No matter where we are, though, we keep a copy of 2K around.

SIKIDS.com: How many copies of the game would you say go through in a year?
Derrick: Hmm… probably about 12.

SIKIDS.com: What is it about 2K that makes it the hoops game of choice for you?
Derrick: It’s just perfect. The way people are moving is realistic. They have the real play-sets. The signature moves are there. The way people really shoot, their form, and even the way they take layups… it’s all there.

SIKIDS.com: Do you play on the road?
Derrick: I’m supposed to be getting a briefcase with an Xbox inside it so that I can hook it up to any TV I’m near on the road.

SIKIDS.com: Basketball players get all the perks.
Derrick: I didn’t even know about it! I saw Gilbert Arenas with one. You just open it, power it up, and go.

SIKIDS.com: How do you think the 2K guys did with regard to capturing your abilities?
Derrick: They did  pretty good! I can shoot a little better in the game.  I didn’t look at my rankings, but they told me I’m an 83. I’m just honored to be in the game.

SIKIDS.com: You’ve gotta live up to that improved shooting now though.
Derrick: They knew what they were doing [laughs]. They made my team better too. 74. That’s an improvement.

SIKIDS.com: Better than last year.
Derrick: Way better.

GO DERRICK ROSE!!!!!!!

HEY BROS

It couldn't have been such a difficult "quest" to beat Derrick Rose on NBA 2K10. He's not THAT good as a real life player, so why should he be any better in virtual basketball games? :)

I hope ur not serious racingoutfielder. LeBron should have been on the cover but Rose is good 2! GO CAVS!

I hear ya there!

I think they should have put a Milwaukee Bucks player on the cover.

congrats

for what? beating him? lol... honestly, i think by the time he realized i could play, the game was over. we were on 2-minute quarters.

I agree, congrats.
