Detroit Pistons point guard Derrick Rose’s oldest son, PJ Rose, is seven years old now.

Rose says he’s not going to force PJ to play basketball like him, but admits the little guy is “getting the itch for it right now.”

“My son, I don’t want him to hoop, but he’s getting the itch for it right now,” Rose told Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe. “If he wants to hoop, then it’s cool to hoop, but I’m not going to be that dad where if he don’t see he’s talented like I was then we’re going to focus this energy in another direction. I’m going to be that dad. He’s not going to hold on to dreams that’s not like reachable.”
