NBA > (Video) Derrick Rose Named MVP

~ The case could’ve been made that Derrick Rose should’ve been handed the MVP award at the All-Star Break. At that point, it was pretty much a conclusion that Rose would become the first Chicago Bull to win the award since the great #23. The NBA made us all wait though until after the season to officially name him the Most Valuable Player. Rose is the youngest to ever win the award at 22 years of age. He also became the 2nd player in history to win the award while playing for his hometown team. Wilt Chamberlain did it in Philedelphia.

For all of the highlights that Rose provided in the regular season, his acceptance speech for the award has to go up there as one of the great acceptance speeches in recent history. It was a personal and emotional thank you to his mother for the sacrifices she made to help him.

At only 22 years old, Rose wining the MVP is truly a remarkable accomplishment. He is only going to get better which is scary for the rest of the league.
