 DEERFIELD, Ill. (AP) -Derrick Rose had a lot of questions at his first practice with the Chicago Bulls on Thursday.
``I asked a lot of them. I lost count,'' the 19-year-old guard said following a two-hour practice at the Bulls' suburban training facility. ``(But) I felt very comfortable out there. I can't wait to get down to Orlando and start playing.''
The 6-foot 3-inch Rose, selected first overall in the NBA draft, was among 17 players at a four-day minicamp held before next week's Orlando Pro Summer League in Florida.
Along with drills and introductions to various plays and scenarios, Rose also played in a 15-minute simulated game.
``His quickness, his athleticism is impressive,'' Chicago coach Vinnie Del Negro said. ``And he'll get better every day as he becomes more comfortable. I'm not really worried about Derrick. It's just a matter of time.''
Rose played a single college season at Memphis and led the Tigers to this year's NCAA Division I title game before falling to Kansas. A Chicago native, Rose also led Simeon Career Academy to state high school championships in his final two years.
