Rose named NBA’s best

Tue., May 3, 2011, midnight

Chiacgo Bulls star Derrick Rose is the NBA’s MVP, becoming the youngest player in league history to win the award, a person familiar with the situation told the Associated Press. The person spoke Monday night on the condition of anonymity because a formal announcement has not been made. That could come to day, with a formal presentation before Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Wednesday. “If I get it? It’ll be nice, unbelievable, a goal that in the beginning in the year I said I wanted to achieve,” Rose said recently when asked what the award would mean to him. “It would be huge, not only for me, but for the city.”
