Knicks show off Derrick Rose's new jersey

Feast your eyes, New York Knicks fans: It's Derrick Rose's jersey with the team.

Rose, who wore No. 1 in his time with the Chicago Bulls, will sport No. 25 as a Knick, his number from his high school days at Simeon, where he wore it in honor of slain star Ben "Benji" Wilson.

Twelve players before Rose have worn No. 25 for the Knicks, most recently Anthony Carter and Timofey Mozgov, who both wore it in 2011. Kevin Seraphin currently wears No. 1 for New York.

Rose was acquired by the Knicks from the Bulls on Wednesday.
