Derrick Rose has made some pretty bold claims about the New York Knicks being a super team in the same vain as the Golden State Warriors lately, but he also has some thoughts on the famous triangle offence.
The point guard is still the youngest ever player to win the regular season MVP award and there was a time during his stint in Chicago where it looked like he might bring the Windy City their first title since Michael Jordan.
After suffering multiple injuries and struggling to recapture his form, the 27-year-old was traded to the Knicks this summer. With Phil Jackson serving as the team's president, it's almost guaranteed New York will run his fabled triangle offence.

However, Rose told NBA.com's Lang Whitaker that with the players they have, that shouldn't be a problem like it has been for previous Knicks teams.
“Because you have [Carmelo Anthony], you have [Kristaps Porzingis], who can post up a lot.
"If they was to put me in that position, that would be my first time having an isolation at the elbow, or just having an isolation period. It can work that way,” Rose said.
“It's really whatever they decide to do, and I have to find my way around it,” Rose said of the Knicks’ offense. “This is the first time I think the triangle will really ever have an athletic point guard in that position. So who knows? All I have to do is make sure my catch-and-shoot is pretty good with this team, and like I said, be prepared.”
Can the Knicks live up to the hype next season?
