Antoine Griezmann professes his love for Derrick Rose after winning World Cup

Antoine Griezmann, you just won the World Cup, what are you going to do next?

Apparently, profess his love for Derrick Rose.

In the celebrations of France winning the World Cup on Sunday, French forward Griezmann spotted his teammate Paul Pogba getting interviewed by FOX Sports. Recognizing this was the American audience, Griezmann took the mic from FOX's Jenny Taft and had one thing to say:

"I love Derrick Rose."

Griezmann, who scored a goal in France's 4-2 win against Croatia in the final, is a big NBA fan. He has been spotted at multiple games over the years, including Game 5 of the 2017 Eastern Conference Finals between the Celtics and Cavs.

This also isn't the first time he has made a comment about D-Rose. He recently signed a contract extension with his club team, Atletico Madrid, but a year ago said the only way he would leave was to play with Rose.

"I would only leave Atleti to play with Derrick Rose," Griezmann said through translation.

In 2015 he posted an image of himself in a Derrick Rose Bulls jersey to his Instagram.

Later that year he took in a Bulls game and got a photo with Joakim Noah.

Maybe when the 27-year-old is ready to leave Europe, he will join a Major League Soccer team just so he can watch more NBA games.

UPDATE: Rose tweeted congratulations to Griezmann.

Jay Cutler is the most unsurprising 'breakout star' of 'Very Cavallari'

Jay Cutler is the most unsurprising 'breakout star' of 'Very Cavallari'

After producing one-liners as amusing as “I’m looking to do the exact opposite of work,” in his reality TV debut, Jay Cutler was at it again.

The former Bears quarterback had more gems to offer in the second episode of his wife’s reality show, “Very Cavallari.” Cutler’s general apathy towards, well, everything continued.

In one of the more unintentionally funny lines of the show, Kristin Cavallari, Cutler’s wife and the star of the show, said Cutler has no game. Keep the giggles to yourselves, Bears fans.

She wistfully talked about how much fun the couple used to have early in their relationship until Cutler cut her off and said “You decided to go to bed at 8:45 every night.”

“He can be a little s*** sometimes, but he makes me laugh,” Kristin Cavallari said of her husband on the show.

That line might be something Bears fans can relate to.

While the show has plenty of your standard reality show drama, Cutler’s scenes are a humorous change of pace. The way things are going, Cutler could be in for a bigger part. In the meantime, maybe Bears fans will skip around until Cutler appears on camera.

Who knew? Bears fans, Kristin. All Bears fans knew.

Signs are pointing towards David Nwaba leaving the Bulls

Signs are pointing towards David Nwaba leaving the Bulls

The Bulls have been mostly quiet in free agency, but it sounds like David Nwaba could be leaving.

The guard had a semi-breakout season with the Bulls last year. In his second year in the NBA he averaged 7.9 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 70 games. On top of that he was often tasked with defending the best perimeter players on opposing teams, a nod to his high-effort defense.

Nwaba entered the offseason as a restricted free agent, but the Bulls have now allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent. Yahoo's Shams Charania reported that the Bulls rescinded their qualifying offer to him.

Letting Nwaba go isn't going to clear a ton of cap space for the Bulls. It could mean the Bulls knew Nwaba wanted more money than they valued him at.

This could also mean he is heading elsewhere and the move is already in the works.

NBC Sports Chicago's Vincent Goodwill, ever the pot-stirrer, hypothesized something else. The Bulls waived guard Sean Kilpatrick earlier in the day.

The savings from these two moves is small despite the timing. The Bulls have just over $20 million in cap space as things stand.
