Bosh: Derrick Rose ‘Playing Like the Best Player in the League’

The Heat and Bulls face off tonight at the United Center. DRose and LeBron are this season’s top MVP candidates, but Chris Bosh ain’t giving it to his teammate: “One day after Miami Heat teammate Juwan Howard said Derrick Rose should win the NBA Most Valuable Player award, forward Chris Bosh also picked the Chicago Bulls guard over the Heat’s LeBron James. ‘LeBron has won the last two,’ Bosh said. ‘He is my teammate. But Derrick has had a phenomenal season. Looking at their record and how improved they are as a team and how much improved he is as a player, I think it’s close. But I think I would give it to Derrick if I were a voter. He’s playing like the best point guard and the best player in the league. He’s the most valuable player. If you take him out of the lineup, there’s no telling what you get.'”
