Earlier in the week it was revealed that Rose’s jersey was second in sales worldwide among NBA players for the 2012-13 season despite the fact that he didn’t play. “Oh it’s the second? That’s my first time hearing that. It’s a blessing it’s an honor at the same time” Rose said when informed of the fact. “My fans they stuck with me from the beginning and they’re faithful. I do everything for them. I am them and they are me.”
