In a move that shocked that the NBA world, the Chicago Bulls traded former league MVP Derrick Rose to the New York Knicks earlier this week. Since the announcement, the hype and buzz in and around the city of New York has been nothing short of electric as fans look forward to what Rose can bring to the team.
