(The New York Post)—The never-ending soap opera surrounding Bulls star Derrick Rose continued on Thursday, and it has nothing to do with another unfortunate injury.

Joakim Noah emotionally defended his teammate after Rose received another round of criticism for saying part of the reason he sits out games is because he’s thinking of his life after basketball.

“I just, I don’t want to see him down. I know sometimes it’s frustrating, you got injuries, you got tweaks,” Noah told reporters after the Bulls beat the Raptors on Thursday night, a game which Rose left with a “minor” hamstring injury.

“Every time something happens to him, people act like it’s the end of the world. And that’s f—ing so lame to me. Relax. Like, OK, he’s coming back from two crazy surgeries. Obviously we’re being conservative with him, and when things aren’t going right, he’s got to listen to his body more than anybody. So everybody needs to chill the f— out. I mean, I’m sorry for cursing, but I’m really passionate. I don’t like to see him down. And he doesn’t say that he’s down, but I don’t like it when, like, people portray him and judge him. ‘Cause it’s not fair to him. It’s not.”

Charles Barkley disagrees.
