The Derrick Rose Greatest Hits Collection



What a magical season it has been for the Chicago Bulls, who secured the best overall record in the entire league. And what a 2010-11 it’s been for Derrick Rose, who has become the man-crush of the third largest city in the United States. He is to “us” what pre-2008 Brett Favre was to the entire state of Wisconsin. To quote “Zoolander”….”Hansel- he’s just so hot right now,” perfectly describes Rose’s current Q rating.

Rose made headlines this NBA preseason for saying “why can’t I be the MVP? Why can’t I become the best player in the league?” I was there at Media Day when he said it, and I didn’t understand why everyone made such a big deal out of it. It’s not news-worthy; if you’ve paid close attention to Rose’s talent and ambition, you would have seen his natural progression to this stage. It’s what #1 overall NBA Draft picks are supposed to do.

I’ve been covering Rose’s games and writing about his career extensively these past three years; so the MVP season is no surprise.

With the playoff series versus the Indiana Pacers set to tip off, it’s perfect time to reflect on his greatest hits.

“Fast don’t lie” became a slogan and a mantra this year.

The McDonald’s All-American game to Chicago for the first time in nearly 30 years. Three of the kids are local, and Rose came to greet them at a Bulls game this year

Will he be the MVP? Here’s what the 32 member ESPN “expert” panel has to say. If you value “The Mothership’s” opinion.

The man himself, this Flipshare video I shot in post-game press availability has been viewed almost 10,000 times!

Rose’s performance this year has inspired awe in his teammates from the Memphis Tigers team that came an overtime session from being 2008 national champions. Exclusives with Chris Douglas-Roberts of the Milwaukee Bucks and Joey Dorsey of the Toronto Raptors discussing Rose.

Is Derrick Rose the next Deron Williams? Maybe he’s on his way to being something better?
