Evan Turner grew up on the West Side of Chicago, within walking distance of the United Center. If there was any place he dreamed about playing when he was a kid it was at the Bulls' home court that loomed over the neighborhood.

Meanwhile, Derrick Rose grew up on the South Side of Chicago, but those great Bulls teams encompassed the proceedings around his neighborhood, too. Two kids from Chicago with the same dream of playing big games at the United Center.

One would think that with so much in common that Turner and Rose would be close friends and confidants, especially since they have been playing with and against each other since they were 15.

Guess again.

"I've known him since we were 15 and I might have had one or two conversations with him," Turner said. "He's a quiet guy. He doesn't talk a lot."
