Derrick Rose wants to lead the Detroit Pistons to the playoffs and is planning to use Jimmy Butler as an example.

Rose compared what he and fellow NBA veteran Blake Griffin have to do next season with the young Pistons team to what Butler did with the Miami Heat.

“I look at that and I look at our team, we have the same thing. We have a lot of young guys. It’s up to them how good they want to become. We’ll do as much as we can do to push them and set an example,” Rose said, via Keith Langlois of

Butler led the Heat to the 2020 NBA Finals, where they lost to the Los Angeles Lakers (4-2).
