  • Marvin

    When Derrick Rose was announced MVP, I was happy and impressed by him backing up the statement he made known to the basketball world; “Why can’t I be the MVP in the league?” This statement came from months of free agency intrigue that Lebron or Wade would join him in Chicago and they both refused the team’s offer. The statement he made and the winning of the MVP trophy showed that Derrick has the hunger and willingness to carry a team on his back that most of these so called “Superstars” of the league don’t have.

  • NoLo DoLo

    When Derrick Rose was announced MVP, I knew that it was beginning the start of a new era (humble stars, a point guards league, new Chicago Basketball) and I knew it was the end of a few eras (undeserving MVPs, Kobe 08, and the unofficial end to the 1990s draftee era, Kobe, Timmy, KG, Ray Ray, Dirk.) When Derrick Rose was announced MVP, I also cleaned up my Jordan Retro 1s (red white black) and put on my Chicago Bulls t-shirt, to honor the Windy City’s last MVP, and to honor 45 years of wonderful basketball.

  • Nate Hoff

    When Derrick Rose was announced MVP, I then knew that the awards were not rigged as Rose truly deserved the award! I felt a renewed joy for the NBA and pride for Rose showing that a hard working player can win in a game of names! I stood up and applauded! Well done Rose and the NBA!!!

  • Innsu Kim

    When Derrick Rose was announced MVP, I breathed a sigh of relief. Derrick grew so much this year in all aspects of his game. The leadership he has is the most important quality, yes people look at his hops, speed, and crafty lay-ups. However, his willingness to buy into a NEW head coach’s system and to lead by example at the point guard position makes him shine over the other MVP candidates.

If that doesn’t make you want to believe in yourself and keep working hard, I don’t know what will. Congrats to the young MVP! Stay humble, stay hungry.

  • Jackie Cooper

    When Derrick Rose was announced MVP I was overjoyed to see such a humble & hardworking young man being duly recognized for his selfless play on the bball court!

    When Derrick Rose was announced MVP, I was watching a highlight video of the kid ball it up and thought to myself “Wow this guy is incredible what cant he do”? i was also eating a bologna sandwich with nacho cheese chips inside the sandwich or a little crunch in my lunch. That sandwich now is my favorite, and i think of D-Rose every time i eat it. He is well deserving of this award and believe that i am well deserving of this signed jersey, because me and D-Rose have something in common, and that something in common is the will to win!

    When Derrick Rose was selected MVP, I didn’t react because I knew he would be the recipient of the award from midseason. He played with more passion and urgency than the other nominees and proved it by leading his Bulls to the top of the NBA ladder with the no. 1 seed. He deserves the award because of his hard work.

    I was happy.
    And I’d be happy if Julie Hendrix won the jersey.
    It would keep the “mothers and sons” theme going that started with an emotional Rose choking back tears as he thanked his mother, Brenda, and would continue with Mother’s Day this weekend, when I’m sure MANY sons will call their mothers for a rare SECOND time this week, after feeling compelled to do so the first time after watching Rose’s acceptance speech.
    I know I was.

    I flipped my lid, i was so happy. He deserves it because he worked hard and busted his ass to make his team one of the best contenders during the regular season and carrying that over to the playoffs. To me MVP means u carry your team and show an amazing form of leadership and set an example for your team on how u should practise and play every game and Derrick Rose not only does that but does alot more. For a guy thats usually so quite to make such a loud impact on his team and the league, it was no doubt he is worthy of the MVP. First Bull to be an MVP since MJ and what footsteps to follow, he took that like no other and excelled. So all hail to the new and youngest MVP in history, and i know its not the only thing he is gonna be the first at in the NBA. CONGRADS FAST DON;T LIE

  • t-sizzle

    First thought that came to mind: Derrick Rose is a bad man. He played like one, taking care of business in every game this season and leading his team to the best record, and he will continue to do so in the rest of these playoffs. He’s a bad man, because he played on with multiple injuries to his ankles. He truly deserves this Mvp, because no matter how bad he treats other teams, he’s a great teammate, friend and son, with a heart of gold.

  • t-sizzle

    When Derrick Rose was announced MVP, I could only think about how deserving he is of the award.

  • Danny Mota

    When Derrick Rose was announced MVP, I smiled. I was born and raise in Chicago, and I 26 years old so I have been through the Bull’s highs and lows as a franchise. I felt that 3 years ago when we drafted Derrick Rose, and he smiled with such joy to be taken by his home team that he would play his heart for us. I guess his love for this team and city produced a kid that can’t be #2 to anyone in this league.

    When Derrick Rose was announced MVP, I thought about Kobe Bryant and how he is only a one-time regular season MVP despite being the best player of this decade. I congratulate Derrick Rose for his tremendous year, but I also snicker at the thought of how many seasons Kobe Bryant put up similar numbers (even better) and had his team in similar position, but lost to an up-and-comer who eventually burned out in the playoffs. Down right outrageous.

  • J.G.

    When Derrick Rose was announced MVP, I was ecstatic. I’m from the Chicago area. I grew up as a young kid watching MJ. However most of those of memories were fuzzy. So most of the Bulls’ moments I remember are the Baby Bulls years. The Chicago area was patiently waiting for the team to lift off to new heights. We never got to see the core of Luol Deng, Kirk Hinrich and Ben Gordon but, we sure have gotten something better. The 2008 lottery was on TV and my dad asked if I wanted to watch. I remember that we had a 1.7% chance of getting the first pick. So I took off to the park to play some basketball. When i got home I had heard the news that we had gotten the 1st pick. I was uber excited and knew the two best players were Derrick and Michael Beasley. My friend said Michael Beasley (this was around the time that people in the Chicago area were falling out of love with Luol Deng). However I always was the type to draft regardless of position and take the best talent. The Bulls took the right step and picked up Derrick Rose. Derrick and the Bulls went through growing pains and we had to go through two seasons that with a record of 82-82, making the playoffs twice. However it just wasn’t enough, not for me, not for the city and definitely not for Derrick Rose. The summer came and Chicagoans wanted the Bulls to assemble an all-star starting lineup of Derrick Rose, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Joakim Noah. I knew that wouldn’t happen at all. However, people can dream I guess. We picked up Carlos Boozer in a move to try to entice LeBron to come over. Then the Decision was made. So the Bulls went on to build a more deep team with only one all-star. Early projections had us pegged as a 4th seed that would make a second round exit. The Heat went through ups and downs as well as the Celtics did. However the Bulls stayed consistent throughout the whole season with Derrick Rose leading the way. Even with key injuries to Carlos Boozer and Joakim Noah. Throughout the whole time the city was buzzing. Coming fresh off a Blackhawks championship the city of Chicago wanted more. We started off sort of sluggish and figured things out pretty soon. Throughout the whole season we were progressively moving up the Eastern Conference standings. Before you know it we were atop of the standings and the city loved it. By this time of course every major MVP rankings has Derrick Rose atop of their rankings. The city was loving it. I was fortunate enough to see Derrick Rose play in high school. To see him transform into floor general and never average 20 points per game in to one of the top scoring threats in the NBA is incredible. I truly believe if he wanted to he can average 12 assists per game. He is that good. So when Derrick won the MVP award I, just like the whole Chicago area, went nuts. So now whenever I say “the Chicago Bulls have the MVP!” I say it fast. Because FAST DON’T LIE!!!

    When Derrick Rose was announced mvp, I realized how unlikely the chances were that my Bulls would have gotten him. We only had a 2% chance of getting the first pick. We already had a solid PG with Kirk Hinrich. We needed scoring and Michael Beasley seemed like the obvious choice. But instead, we drafted the eventual MVP, a humble boy FROM CHICAGO, as our future….and we’ve never looked back since. Almost made me want to cry. GO BULLS!

    I was happy for the youngster. But 1 can’t make a case that all high schoolers should be allowed in. I don’t think hoppsters should be allowed in until after 2 years out of high school. In the NFL it’s 3 years and it makes college football and the NFL that much better. Players have time to learn and become who they really are, and not just a high school bust like some of these guys. And college basketball would be better with all players staying 2 years. what do u think, get at me, ezlolo@yahoo.com

    When Derrick Rose was announced MVP…

    I exhaled a breath that had been held in by the collective basketball community.
    Whether you agree with it or not, most people have different perceptions of what makes the MVP, and it just so happens that he fills alot of anyone’s (check: anyone who has a respectable opinion) criteria for the award. He took a decent, at best, supporting cast and took them to the league’s best record and obviously the #1 seed in the East, and put up some pretty good, but not great, numbers while doing so. 25, 7 and 4 are no numbers to laugh at.

    Same situation as with AI in 2001, he may not have been the best player in the league, but he led his team to the #1 seed in the East, even though he shot a horrid FG%. Know why he won it? Because MVP stands for MOST VALUABLE PLAYER… VALUABLE, VALUABLE, VALUABLE, VALUABLE, VALUABLE, VALUABLE, VALUABLE, VALUABLE. LeBron fans take note!

    Let me define valuable for you:

    val-u-able: of considerable use, value or importance, of great worth, costly, cherished, important.

    Obviously, Iverson and Rose were of considerable use in their MVP seasons. Both are maybe the most cherished players of their respective cities, of their generations. Fact is, Derrick Rose was the most valuable, pivotal and influential towards his team’s ultimate regular season outcome this year. The same goes for Iverson in 2001.

    Derrick Rose is a new breed of superstar. You saw it in his MVP acceptance speech. You saw it in his college days, his high-school days. You see it growing in his game. He has a real essence of realness, and humbleness that is not found in pro athletes these days, and especially the last 2 MVP’s… Ahem

    Congratulations, Derrick. This award was yours to win, and you won it, and made the world proud to root for a guy like yourself.

    PS: I am a Knicks fan.

    When Derrick Rose was announced MVP, I was ecstatic because not only was Derrick one of my favorite players, but he became the youngest player ever to win that award. With all the hard work that Derrick has put in to improving his game, I think he deserves the award. Not only has he increased his own productivity, but he is gradually improving to the level where he starts making all his teammates better, such as the case where he led his Chicago Bulls team to the number 1 seed in the revamped East division. I’m definitely happy for Derrick and the Chicago Bulls, and would be very intrigued to see what happens next to this young and exciting player!

    …it’s about time he receives his much deserved world wide respect. Hailing from Chicago, I can’t begin to imagine how good it feels for him to be the league’s best player, and first Bull to win in since Jordan, in his hometown. Keep doing your thing and expanding your game D Rose because soon enough you’ll have your gold statue outside the United Center.

    When Derrick Rose was announced MVP, i was bitterly disappointed. Yes the man has put in a tonne of hard work and has played very well this year but the fact of the matter is he is not the MVP of the league… the only reason he is is because of all his media hype… its time for people actually involved in the game to be the voters, not sports writers trying to sell papers. its time to give the vote back to the coaches….

    When Derrick Rose was announced MVP, I got a tear in my eye. This is one of the most humble, soft spoken guys in the league, but man does he have some game.
    His character and his personality are what gets me though. There is special talent in the NBA, but this is how Rose sets himself apart. That tear that I got was when he thanked his mom at the press conference. That was probably one of the greatest moments I have ever seen in the NBA, and it takes a different kind of guy to show that emotion, to show that love. That was a very happy moment for me, to see a kid (22 years old?!) achieve something that is an impossible dream.
    The best part about the whole thing is, you know this guy is staying grounded. He is going to fight for his place, he is going to keep getting better, and it is because of who he is and the person he wants to become. His game will always be at the forefront, but his character will continue to shine through.

    (For what it’s worth, I all but guaranteed he’d never be a top 10 player in the L, let alone an MVP. Broken jumper, one-dimensional, ball stopper, flash and no substance, etc.)
    Was he the worthy MVP of 2010-11? Sure, I buy it. And yet, I [i]still[/i] don’t think he’s as great as many are now saying.

    when derrick rose was named the nba MVP! i started to reflect on the greatnest he has put into the bulls team and franchise. From being a non-playoff team when they drafted him, to leading them to one of they most exciting playoff series in recent memory against boston Cs. i espcially started to think of the hard work he put in, in the summer. i rembered thinking he was a real deal when i watched him on youtube catching lobs on hot summer day in a small highschool gym ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q19VErS2iH4&feature=related) as soon as i saw that i begin to think of the real deal. Then i began to think of what he did this season, leading the team to 60+ wins without joakim noah, or boozer for half the year. then i looked up on my wal and saw the cover with NO BULL and thought that the nba was in good hands. when i heard Derrick Rose was MVP, i sat there for around 10 minutes thinking about the only time i ever saw him play and the awe i sat there in for the whole 48 minutes and how much he deserved it.

  • chi-town boy

    when i saw derrick rose was named the MVP i sat there just thinking about the first time i ever saw him play, it was his rookie season against NYK in the garden i can just rember sitting there in awe watching him play. It was a pleasure to watch so, its true hard work pays off congrats D-ROSE you deserved it

  • francis gopaco

    d.rose is the mvp and for me he’s also the most improved player. and right now i’m one of the millions who supports and believe in his game! I even bought an imitation jersey of his,cause i can’t afford to buy the original one!i bought it because of my support as a fan to D.rose. i hope to win this contest. I really admire him for being humble after all what he has got he always commends his team mates every after game! and i believe that bulls is going to take the crown.let’s go bulls!

    When Derrick Rose was announced MVp, i thought to myself, look what can happen to a man that belives in god and one who looks up to his mother because wothout god we can’t do anything. But to see him work so hard, and obey he is getting blessed and being able to wake up every day to help his team be victorious. I’m very proud to be a fun of Derrick Rose because he is only 22 years old and be a black man going down the right path. he said at the end of last season he wanted to be MVP. so he has worked so hard to be the MVP. I also play basketball and hope some day to be like Derrick Rose or maybe even closer.

  • Jen

    When the season starts I already notice the change on Derrick Rose’s game
    esp his outside shooting was better than ever, he is one of the most down to earth and soft spoken athleate that I’ve seen, I love basketball and from the start I know that Derrick is going to be the MVP , he is confident in a good way, his a smart and strong player a combination of Michael Jordan and Allen Iverson in my opinion game wise,not selfish keeps everybody involve,so he deserves It.

  • idrees

    When Derrick Rose was announced MVP, I cried as I watched his acceptance speech. I’m a long-time Celtics fan but I greatly admired his humility, especially when he thanked his mother for all the sacrifices she made for him. I believe that is a sentiment everyone can sympathize with. The culture of professional sports in general has become full of egotistic superstars and it’s refreshing that a down-to-earth person like Rose still exists in this League.

I’m Derrick’s biggest fan here in England but my parents will never let me get a jersey off the internet and they’re so hard to get in the shops where I live in England. So i have to show my support by listening to every one of D-Rose’s match’s that I’m awake for, and play like him when I play for my school as I’m the starting point guard. Thanks to D-Rose I got in to basketball.He is the best player in the L and the world and I’m proof that this fact is known the world round.

  • Darius Vincent

    When Derrick Rose was announced MVP, I was at work secretly watching the press-conference live online wile quietly going crazy for the most deserving, talented, and gifted athlete in the game. As I’ve watched him take the court every single game, I think about how lucky and fortunate the Bulls organization and fans are to have Rose in the first place with the nearly impossible odds to draft him #1 and how he dedicates his life to improving as a player and a leader. In just three years, Rose has ascended to the top and for a Bulls fan like me, who has endured the struggles of the post-Jordan era, Derrick Rose is more than I could dream. I thought back to his days when I watched him play high school basketball at Simeon winning two titles and how proud I feel that he is representing Chicago so well. His game has evolved and is almost too good to be true. But aside from his mesmerizing and explosive ability on the court, Rose’s humble and selfless attitude earns him this distinction as the best. I was touched by his speech of acceptance of the award knowing that my dream of a Bulls superstar had been realized. Rose wants to win more than anything, and that’s all I can ask for as a true Chicago Bulls fan. Leading his team to the best record in the NBA he is a winner, and with his unforgettable highlights this year and in the past, he is the league MVP. Congrats to my favorite player, hero, and now league MVP Derrick Rose.

    When Derrick Rose was announced MVP, he showed the World, how a true number one looks like. He was determined, he stepped his game up and became the youngest MVP in the history of the NBA. Nobody has ever done that before, and he won’t stop there. The whole city of Chicago and millions of people all around the World are celebrating him, but he can’t slow down. He led his team into the Playoffs as the first seed and I believe he and the Bulls can make it to the Finals. He has already made history but can he become the youngest MVP with a championship ring on his finger? I believe Derrick’s future holds much more than we can expect from him right now. He is going to light up this Bulls organization and if he works hard enough, we will hear his name amongst the greatest basketball players of all time. We’ve waited a long time for the next legend after Michael Jordan. The time is almost here. Even if you don’t like Rose or the Bulls, you have to admire what he has done for the league and the game of basketball. (I started playing basketball after seeing him a year ago and I’m looking forward to continuing it.) In a nutshell, he is a great player and he is going to be a major factor in this league for years to come. I wish Derrick and his team good luck for the Playoffs. They deserve to be champions.

The highlight reel in my mind, kept rolling one amazing feat after another of the GOAT and his legacy to this team. I was reminded from when Chi-Town’s lead Bull took them to the top to his final steps off that homecourt hardwood; Which left an entire city wondering in the back of their mind. . “Who will lead us now?” Suddenly i flashed forward to Rose and his incredible skill,and talent. Gettin the city back to a level of excitement i had forgetten existed. Chicago had a new leader. . .So when Rose was named MVP. . . i knew that Chicago would be back once again. . .

Now I know Rose has a legacy in the league and I am sure he will continue to build on it by winning a ring this year!

    i thought that my man Derrick Rose deserved the MVP hands down, I’m no Bulls fan but he is the best in the league

  • Delano L Williamson

    As a Bulls fan that went through the dynasty years in the 90′s and then through the years when they won just 15-20 gems a year, this whole year has been just unreal for me as a fan. 62-20, who would have thought that this team would have done that? And it’s due in large part to Derrick Martell Rose. He carried this team all season due to injuries to Boozer and Noah and never beat his chest or flap his gums about being the best; he let his game do the talking by putting up the numbers he put up. When he won the MVP award, I was in my car and all I could do was yell and do the Tiger Woods fist pump. Thang God my windows are tinted becuase I know I would have probably been admitted into a mental institution and not typing this had anyone actually seen me. Then, the 1.7% popped up in my mind. That was the percentage the Bulls had of getting that #1 pick; 1.7%. And three years later that #1 pick is getting the MVP. For me, it made me happier for Rose getting his first than when Jordan got his five becuase those lean years after he left and becuase we had a 1.7% chance of getting Rose in the first place.

Damn, Rose is so fast the U.S government should have employed him, would have caught up with Bin Laden 10 years earlier!!! It’s great that he won, A whole lot of justice being done lately!

    When Derrick Rose was announced MVP, I realized that i should go to the store and buy some bread. After a hour or so, after i had eaten my sandwiches emotions started to show.. The sandwich had tasted better than usual, the sun was shining brighter than normally. Than it hit me, Derrick Rose had won the MVP award. And it had brought something different to my world. For a second all the LJ, KB and DW rumours and speculations stopped for at least for me. Congrats to D.Rose for MVP and best of luck for the finals.

  • Kenneth

    When Derrick Rose was announced MVP,I totally knew at the beginning of the first few games in the season that he was going to win it and that I just had to wait for the official announcement. But most importantly after I heard the announcement I told my classmates that D-Rose just showed you that with hard work and team play we would achieve success in our basketball team and that we just have to keep playing our best at every game that we play.

    When Derrick Rose was announced MVP, I cried a single indian tear. Not really. But seriously, i wasnt surprised. I was a little distraught that my boy KD didnt get it but hes the shooting champ (Back to back baby!). DRose deserved the award and obviously worked from the beginning of the season to achieve it. NO BULL!
