Joakim Noah Explains How Derrick Rose's Rape Accuser Was Only Trying to Make Money

Joakim Noah is happy to have Derrick Rose back in the fold, and is relieved to be done with the “distraction” that was the point guard's civil rape case.

“It’s great the truth came out,” Noah said Wednesday, according to the New York Post’s Marc Berman. “We didn’t have a point guard for all of preseason. All because of a girl who was trying to make money off my friends … is just wack.”

Noah, who will likely catch flak for his chose of words regarding that young lady, said Rose is “a tough kid” who was the main reason he signed with the New York Knicks.

“We spent a lot of time working out together over the summer,’’ Noah said. “He was in great spirits, but you could tell, having something like that is heavy.’’

Rose was cleared of all charges in the sexual assault trial Wednesday.

Tayshaun Prince Reveals How Many Titles Pistons Would Have Won If They Drafted Carmelo Anthony

Joe Dumars is a Hall of Famer, a member of the Detroit Pistons "Bad Boys" era, and someone who has won titles as a player and general manager. Dumars' career will likely have a huge asterisk next to it because of what he cost the Pistons organization back in 2003, though. 

Rather than keep it simple, turning Detroit into Golden State of the Midwest before it was cool, Dumars chased the next Dirk Nowitzki when he selected Darko Milicic with the No. 2 pick in the 2003 draft and letting Carmelo Anthony slide to No. 3 on the Denver Nuggets.

What should have turned into the next dynasty saw Milicic flame out the league within a few years, while Melo went on to become the best scorer of this generation.

Tayshaun Prince joined CBS Sports host Nick Kostos on the Crossover and said that the Pistons could have won as many as four championships if they had drafted Anthony with the No. 2 pick instead of Milicic.

“I think if we did take Melo, maybe two, maybe three, maybe four championships,” Prince said. “And then after my fourth or fifth year, now you have to decide what you want to do. But at least you know going in, if you take Melo we got a guy. And who knows, he comes off his bench the first year or two, or maybe they insert him into the starting lineup, whatever.

“But we knew coming in, if he could come in off the bench and accept that sixth man role, we’d be pretty awesome for the next five or six years before they make the decision if they’re going to keep me or him.”

Prince is currently a free agent after spending last season with the Minnesota Timberwolves, while Darko fights in the MMA or something like that. 

CBS NBA analyst and former Pistons star Rip Hamilton said part of the process that drove Detroit into taking Darko was the Dumars need to find next great stretch four after the rise of Dirk Nowitzki.

“You had a guy like Dirk Nowitzki on the Dallas Mavericks, and everyone was trying to find the next Dirk,” Hamilton said.

Dumars threw off history, because who knew if Chris Bosh still became a Raptor, Dwyane Wade actually went to the Nuggets and King James leaves Cleveland for Los Angeles in The Decision?
