MWP: He deserves to [wait until he feels ready]. He could damage his knee again. When he comes back next year, he'll be the old Derrick Rose.
What's your take on Warriors guard Stephen Curry?
MWP: When Steph was in college and he didn't make the NCAA tournament, I was hoping they'd rig the tournament so he could play because he's so exciting. He reminds me of Kobe. He has it in him to take over games and make shots like Kobe, Derek Fisher, Robert Horry, Shane Battier or Jason Terry.
Who would you rather guard, Kevin Durant or Carmelo Anthony?
MWP: I would rather guard whoever is the toughest person to guard.
Who's harder to guard?
MWP: Kevin's a little tougher. He's just tall. I can't really block Melo's shot either, but when Kevin rises up, there's nothing you can do. I like that. It's fun.
