Congratulations, Derrick Rose.
You are the 2010-2011 Most Valuable Player of the NBA.
Ever since he announced to the world that he could be the NBA's MVP, Derrick Rose was-- to most.
Although many debated whether he should win MVP, Rose became the media darling with his acrobatic finishes and improved shooting. Rose will narrowly beat out Dwight Howard for one of the highest honors of the NBA.
But does winning the MVP mean you're the best player in the league? Many might argue that LeBron James, Kobe Bryant or Kevin Durant is the best player in the NBA.
Does it mean you're the best player at your position? Others might argue that Chris Paul, Deron Williams or Steve Nash are better point guards than Derrick Rose.
Derrick Rose will be the first PG to win the MVP award since Steve Nash won it twice in '05 and '06. So is he the best PG in the league? Has Steve Nash finally passed the torch to the next generation?
No. Not yet, at least.
Steve Nash is still the best PG in the NBA, so why not compare him directly with this year's MVP, Derrick Rose?
