Derrick Rose is something else. Something else in that he stands out from the crowd. At age 22 he become the youngest player to capture the NBA Rookie of the Year award. In his second season he was selected to the Eastern Conference All Star team as a reserve. Rose was the second Bulls player to play in an All Star game next to Michael Jordan.
The following year, 2011, Rose was elected as the Eastern Conference All Stars starting point guard. As if all this wasn’t enough, Rose become the leagues youngest Most Valuable Player in history. Again, sharing the spotlight with Michael Jordan. The only two in Chicago Bulls history to win the award.
The 2012 season just started and so far so good. The Bulls are 3-1 and had a very impressive 1 point victory over the Lakers on Christmas Day! Putting all his success aside, Derrick Rose is such a humble guy. He turned 23 in October and the sky is the limit.
