When a lion sings, it really does make a difference
Posted On June 22, 2021
Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose has learned a valuable lesson about singing to the lion in his career.
The Chicago Bulls superstar was singing to a lion in the parking lot of a Chicago Cubs game Thursday night when the animal began barking and flapping its wings to express its displeasure with his efforts.
Rose quickly got back to work and scored the game-winning basket with 9:12 remaining, but the song has brought about a new kind of respect and respect for the animals.
“The song was a blessing,” Rose told reporters.
“I have to say, the song is very important to me.”
In his rookie season with the Bulls, Rose played in five games for the first time in his professional career, but he’s never really sung to a big cat.
He said he doesn’t know why the song was necessary, though.
Rose, who had never played in the NBA before, said the song helps the animals to communicate.
“If I didn’t sing the song, I don’t think they would be able to understand,” Rose said.
“They don’t have to know how to talk to me, so they don’t.”
Rose said he has learned to respect the animals as part of the song and has used it in his workouts.
“It was a nice thing to do,” Rose explained.
“You want to be a part of something that helps a lot of people.
If you can sing, you can be a leader, you’re a leader.
It helps people and it helps animals.”
Rose is currently in Las Vegas to promote the release of his upcoming autobiography, “A Song for the Lion,” which will be published next month.
The Bulls have lost five of six, though they’re currently on pace for their best record since they won the 2006 NBA title.
