The NBA just released the news that the Chicago Bull's point guard Derrick Rose is the winner of the 2010-2011 season. By winning the Maurice Podoloff trophy today, D-Rose has become the youngest player to ever be named NBA MVP at the age of 22. He also has become only the second Bull to win the MVP award, next to, you guessed, Michael Jordan.
Rose received the trophy at a press conference earlier today and spoke to the audience about the inspiration that he received as a child from his hard-working mother. He said that his mother inspired him to work hard at his job just as she worked hard at hers. Rose was very humble during his speech, thanking his coach, his teammates, the managerial staff, and the owners for allowing him to play the game he loves.
Rose finished the MVP voting with 1,182 points ahead of Dwight Howard, who had 643 points, and Lebron James, who had 522 points. Fans everywhere, especially me, are excited to watch the young point lead his Bulls to many championships for years to come, and maybe win a few more MVP awards along the way.
