Derrick Rose claims the Knicks training camp is the best of his career

After an interesting summer of activity, the New York Knicks are perhaps the most interesting team in the NBA heading into next season.

For years, Carmelo Anthony has been crying out for some help in the Big Apple and the first stage of the cavalry arrived in the form of 7'3" Latvian Kristaps Porzingis last year.

However, team president Phil Jackson also traded for Derrick Rose this summer and brought in Joakim Noah in free agency to build one of the most interesting starting fives in the east.

Question marks still surround Rose's fitness and many believe he hasn't been the same player since wrecking his ACL back in 2012.

The point guard has put those fears to bed for the Knicks faithful by insisting this is the best training camp he has had in his career.

"I look at it as the years that I've played on the league, this the most focus I've had knowing the situation, what I'm getting myself into," Rose said. "The big year we have ahead of us. We're focused, we're dedicated, that's all you want from this group."

Rose has even suggested the Knicks training staff have had to drag him off the court so he doesn't over do it.

"This is my first time paying attention to it," Rose said. "And the training staff went into depth about how hard I go and how much distance I cover and the impact of how I just play. And they have to kick me off the court here and there cause of how hard I work."
