Winning the award means that the player has transcended past everyone else in the NBA during that season, elevating not only themselves but also the status of their team. It is the pinnacle of individual success and talent in the league. There have been truly outstanding players who have reached that peak multiple times in their careers, such as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Michael Jordan, and LeBron James. But while those players may boast that they won the achievement more than anyone in league history, none of those MVPs won the award when they were as young as Derrick Rose was when he received his. At age 22 in 2011, Derrick Rose was the youngest Most Valuable Player in the league’s history. The MVP not only signifies that the player has reached a transcendent level above everyone else but it also means that the player brought his team to a height of success that they would not have achieved had it not been for his presence. What this meant for D-Rose was that not only did he become the best player in the league when he won the award but he also led his team, the Chicago Bulls, beyond what they would have been capable of without him. Standing nearly 6’3” and weighing 190 pounds, Derrick Rose was always a massive point guard. His size at the one position was not his best asset, however. The best part about D-Rose from a physical standpoint was always his athletic ability. Coming into the NBA, Rose was one of the fastest players in the world. But he was not recklessly fast—Derrick was always in full control of his speed and quickness. Did you enjoy this excerpt?
