by October 31, 2010

Via Yahoo!: “Fans chanted ‘MVP! MVP!’ for Derrick Rose on Saturday night, and it probably won’t be the last time he hears it. Rose matched a career high with 39 points, helping the Chicago Bulls stage a big rally in a 101-91 victory over the Detroit Pistons. ‘I’m just taking the shots that they gave me,’ said Rose, who was 13-of-27 from the field. ‘They’re giving me wide open shots. I’m going to take them. They’re giving me wide open lanes, I’m going to drive it. My teammates gave me the confidence to do that.’ Chicago trailed by 21 early in the third quarter and was still down 86-73 about three minutes into the fourth when it went on a 19-2 run to pull out a dramatic win in the home opener.”
