New York Notes: Rose, Noah, Lin, D-League

Derrick Rose wasn’t bothered by the boos he heard in Friday’s return to Chicago, writes Ian Begley of The former MVP had 15 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds in his first game against the Bulls since a June trade that sent him to New York. Rose received a mixed reaction when he was introduced and was booed the first several times he touched the ball. “It was all fun, man. I love competing,” he said. “I love when the crowd is into it. I knew it was going to be some yells. I knew there was going to be some boos. I’m from here. I’m used to it. I’ve been getting it ever since I was in sixth grade, going on the West Side of Chicago and playing and me being a South Side. I’m used to it.”

There’s more this morning out of New York:

  • The homecoming was a little friendlier for Joakim Noah, relays Marc Berman of The New York Post. The former Bulls center, who signed with the Knicks in July for $72MM over four years, was cheered loudly during introductions. He responded with 16 points, nine rebounds and four assists in the 117-104 victory. “There was a lot of love in this building,’’ said Noah, who spent nine seasons in Chicago. “I wanted to keep my emotions in check in this building.’’
  • Nets guard Jeremy Lin said his experience with a cancer patient helped him get over any self-pity regarding his hamstring injury, writes Brian Lewis of The New York Post. Lin tweaked the hamstring in Wednesday’s game and will be out of action for at least two weeks. That’s when doctors will re-evaluate the injury and determine when he might return. “At first, I was pretty upset. I was really upset,” Lin said. “I came back to my locker, and I wore those pink shoes that day for Ava [Lee, who is battling leukemia], and I immediately saw the shoes and started thinking about her, and I immediately ended my pity party. It could be a lot worse. I’m still blessed that I’m going to be back on the court.”
  • Long Island Nets head coach Ronald Nored understands that his top priority is developing players for the parent team, according to The new franchise shares facilities with Brooklyn in Barclays Center and the HSS Training Center, so it will be easy to have a close working relationship. “Those assignments, that’s the No. 1 reason for the D-League,” Nored  said Friday at the team’s media day. “We’re a resource for them. Also for the players to come down and get better. That’s our focus. Our guys know that. The guys in this gym, they know that. If guys were to be assigned to our team, we’re hear to help those guys grow and get better.”

    I get rose might not be seen as a great guy. But what has he done to earn boos? Not his fault he got hurt. Bulls are better off without him. But rose still gave them some great years
