    Maybe he got terrible news and took off not caring about anything else?

    I have a bad feeling this has something to do with his mom or brother, both of whom Rose is extremely close to.

    Typically when a player is having some sort of family emergency he'll inform the team and they'll inform the media that the player is absent for a reason. They don't always say what the reason is (I assume that depends on if the player is okay with it or not), but the Knicks clearly didn't know where Rose was or at the very least didn't inform anyone that they knew (which is just a dumb PR move).

    We saw when Frye had his family emergencies this year, the Cavs publicly excused him from team activities, which appears to be the standard practice of most NBA teams.

    Similarly, players are generally smart and/or professional enough to inform the team paying them millions of dollars when they have an issue worthy of missing games.

    Neither of those happened here, or at least it appears that way.

    It looks like it was an emergency and Rose took off immediately. Hornacek said after the game that things will be clear soon and he wants to respect what Rose is going through. So he got information late or during the game I assume.

    Rose isn't getting bought out or traded, don't think that's happening....

    Starting to sound more and more like Rose is just homesick. I don't think he enjoys basketball anymore. And if he does, it's under certain circumstances.. like playing fourth quarters. You don't do this stuff in your contract year otherwise.

    Rondo really handling this "like a professional." Guy is a headcase. Literally calling out his coach - who is already on the hot seat - in front of the media. Clearly he wants out of Chicago, but this is a classic example of how a guy like Rondo can ruin a team very quickly.

    "ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!!" - KG referring to winning a title with a headcase like Rondo as the starting PG.
