LeBron James' move to Cleveland Cavaliers has been the biggest NBA talking point this summer, but there is one superstar player who doesn't think the blockbuster move is that interesting at all.

That man is Chicago Bulls' point-guard Derrick Rose, who after two consecutive seasons riddled by injuries, says he doesn't fear LeBron James ahead of the upcoming season.

LeBron's decision to join the Cleveland Cavaliers, Central Eastern Conference rivals of the Chicago, means one more game against LeBron during the 2014/15 NBA season for Bulls fans, but Rose maintains that it's business as usual for them.

"The same way I would if anyone else was in my division. Just because it’s him it’s not going to get me to play even harder," Derrick Rose told Sam Smith of

"I know that every night that I step on the floor, I’m going to do whatever it takes to win the game no matter who is on the floor. Just knowing how great he is and the game, I hope the fans appreciate the game even more."
