While the Chicago Bulls are definitely in the thick of the playoff hunt in the Eastern Conference with a 27-16 record, the team’s point guard Derrick Rose doesn’t seem too pleased these days.

Following a 108-94 loss to Cleveland earlier this week, Rose had the following to say.

“Everybody has to be on the same page,” Rose said. “Until then, we’re going to continue to get our ass kicked. We’re not communicating while we’re on the floor to one another. Everybody is quiet. Trust plays a part, but communicating on defense in a team sport is huge.

Rose saw no fire in his team and seemed genuinely bothered.

“We’ve got to give a better effort,” Rose added. “It seems like we’re not even competing. It’s (bleeping) irritating.”

Chicago plays host to the defending champion San Antonio Spurs later tonight at 8 PM/ET
