The rule allows a player finishing his rookie contract to make 30 percent of a team’s salary cap — up from 25 percent — if he’s twice been voted an All-Star starter, twice been voted All-NBA or won an MVP award.

“It’s unbelievable,” Rose the current MVP told CSNChicago.com. “But the rule, I guess, it fits me for what I’ve achieved at a young age and hopefully there will be a couple more people like me.”
