ESPN: The Gamer Blog - Bulls phenom Derrick Rose talks video games, custom systems and crossing up Andre Miller

It's Rose's speed that earned him the trophy at the PlayStation Skills Challenge over All-Star weekend, a competition Rose had never really seen until he played the virtual version in Sony's NBA 09: The Inside just a few hours before the event.

"I'm glad I played the game earlier," he told me after he won. "It helped."

As for the big dunk to close the contest, was Rose in the wrong event Saturday night? Should he have been taking on Kryptonite and Superman?

"No, not at all" he says. "I can jump but I'm not creative."

Here's what else Rose had to say as I sat with him inside the PlayStation player's suite during NBA All-Star weekend as Sony designed a custom red PS3 for him with the name "Pooh-1" laser-etched across the top. (PS3)
