According to Stilletto Jill, Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose has been named the NBA’s MVP for the 2010-2011 season. An official announcement is expected to be made later this week. Below is how it is being reported:
As expected, Bulls guard Derrick Rose has been named MVP for the 2010-2011 NBA season. At 22, Rose is the youngest to ever win the award and the first Bull to receive the honor since Michael Jordan.
In an impressive third season, Rose is averaging 25 points, 7.7 assists and 4.1 rebounds. The Bulls have had an incredible season. They secured the best record and their coach, Tom Thibodeau also won coach of the year honors. They’re the 12th duo in NBA history to win both awards.
Monday night the Bulls lost to the Hawks 103-95 in the first game of the second round of the playoffs. Derrick Rose re-injured his ankle and is listed as day to day but I can’t imagine him sitting out any games. It’s the PLAYOFFS after all.
