Writer and Director Scott Diener joins Justin on Extension 720 to discuss his film, “Pooh: The Derrick Rose Story.” Scott talks about how Derrick is such a polarizing figure in Chicago sports, the amount of pressure Derrick was under while playing for the Bulls, how the game of basketball was more about survival than a sport for Derrick Rose, why Derrick felt the need to be so close to his family, Derrick’s love for the city of Chicago, why Bulls fans gave up on Derrick Rose and if there is a chance we see Derrick in a Bulls uniform once again.

This is the podcast for Extension 720. The show originates from Chicago on WGN Radio and features newsmakers, tastemakers and trailblazers.  Hosted by award-winning broadcaster Justin Kaufmann, this talk show/audio magazine goes in-depth to help you better understand the city (and world) that you live in.
