Just 1 quick question when was the last time you heard MVP chants in the United Center?
I'm just saying, that should speak volumes.
I'm ready for the DRose Where Amazing Happens commercial, because this sh*t is AMAZING!!!!!
No one really talks about how the Bulls could actually win the east. I agree Rose is the definite MVP in my eyes.
Tonight, was a statement game. 42 vs the best team in the league.
JUst sayin...the bulls last game.... vs Boston? Win. vs. Miami? Win. vs. LA? Win. vs. Dallas? Win. vs. San Antonio? Win. Orlando? Win.
The last time theyve played the 6 best teams in the league, they won all of those games. All without Noah. Look out NBA, this is a title calibur team.
He said before the game how bad he wanted this one...a measuring stick.

MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP! MVP!
And enufff with all this D Will/CP3 bullshyyyt. Westbrook is the only baller who can even consider himself on D Rose's level. Williams and Paul arent doing anything special, sure they average marginally more assists than Rose, but Rose can do so many things neither of them could ever wish to do. Westbrook is still not the explosive force Rose is, but i would put him No.2.
And dont say hes not a point guard. Hes just a point guard who happens to be extremely good at scoring. Stop acting like it matters when come playoff time all the contemporary "stud" PGs, Williams, Paul, Nash, etc all have to put up scoring numbers in the playoffs anyway. Rose has officially at the All Star Break of 2011 become the best Point Guard on the planet.
Paul and Rose are completely different PGs.....they should never be compared to each other. Both are amazing.
Lol so nice to hear the MVP chants at the United Center but not for #23...haha and even on MJ's birthday.
Paul in 2008 was THE MAN. ANd i was his biggest supporter. But since those injuries, he runs a real nice offense but he himself just isnt a weapon that can be put in a D Rose discussion.
He is having an incredible year, but i dont see him passing up Darko unless they win the east
Paul may not be the scorer Rose is but, he is a better shooter, passer, and defensive player.... I don't think Rose is head and shoulders better than Paul...
What has CP3 done? Is his team 22 games over .500? No.
Is it me or has Paul not looked healthy all year? He's still shootingcrazy percentages, dirt low turnovers, and leads the league in assists. He's putting up MVP Steve Nash numbers with a worse team than the Suns those years, and NO ONE CARES!!!!! Paul is stupid good.
Derrick Rose is the mvp right now, but don't be so sure Lebron won't have anything to say about that
Prob because he isnt putting up Nash MVP Numbers
10-11 Paul: 16.4 PPG 9.7 APG 47.7 FG% 43.9 3FG% Team 33-25
04-05 Nash: 15.5 PPG 11.5 APG 50.2 FG % 43.1 3FG% Team 62-20
05-06 Nash 18.8 PPG 10.6 APG 51.2 FPG % 43.9 3FG% Team 54-28 (No Amare)
Rose is on a better team true, but I feel that Paul could play on the same level as Rose... Paul controls the flow of the game better than any PG in the league... Paul is coming off surgery so he is still rounding into form... Paul is the most efficient PG in the league..BTW it's not like the Hornets suck...
Did you just say Paul is leading the league in assists? You're aware that Rondo is averaging 12.2apg right? Not to disrespect Paul, I'm a huge fan, but give Rondo his due.
LebRon is definitely having an MVP season...but....voters hold grudges.
And Rose is the darling of the NBA right now, is in a big market and has Madison street jumping again.
Rondo also cant hit a mid range jump shot to save his life.
And pretty much doesnt look at the hoop.
And is the 4th best player on a team that is 25 games over .500, while Rose is the best player on a team thats 22 games over 500.
I never suggested that Rondo was better than Rose, just that he was leading the league in assists. Rose is my MVP candidate, hands down.
Rondo actually is becoming a capable shooter from 15-18 ft..
Remember when D-Will was the best PG last year, then it was clearly Rondo not two weeks later in the playoffs. Now it is Rose, who is barely in the top 10 in assists this year. Lebron is the runaway MVP. Rose is the flavor of the month.
Rose is the only player in the league in the top 10 in both points and assists.
Flavor of the month?
He has also made 162 of his last 180 FT attempts, which comes out to a tidy 90% on the nose..and 7.5 attempts over his last 24 games.
Flavor of the month?
Rose has carried a lot of burden of the Bulls team this season. I'd say he has to be a serious MVP contender for the following reasons:-
1. Boozer has missed 18 games this season.
2. Noah has missed 30 games this season
3. Steve Nash was 2005-06 MVP with Kurt Thomas at C, D-Rose has had Kurt Thomas at C for maybe 30 games and Kurt is now 38 years old and the 2nd oldest player in the NBA
4. D-Rose's SG is Keith Bogans who whilst being a good role player is only averaging 3.9 ppg.
So D-Rose with only help all season from Luol Deng has taken Chicago into contention to be the top team out East.
Derrick Rose is the MVP of the first half of the season.
You just have these LeBron biters who want LeBron to have the best of both worlds. LeBron was tired of carrying the load in Cleveland, so he took the easy way out and joined an All World player in Wade and a power forward who could go off for 40-50 himself in Bosh. Now, since LeBron is no longer carrying the team, people want to say he should get it simply because he's the best player in the league lol.
LeBron hurt his own chances of MVP... He sacrificed personal awards the day he decided to join Wade and Bosh. Rose is doing what LeBron did the last two seasons. He's the MVP.
amen... it's about time he gets 40...
You're gonna lose argueing for Paul. Todays NBA fans view it like this..If you score more then you're a better player. Doesn't matter if its the point guard position or that you're a better shooter,passer,defender, To fans these days scoring puts you over the top
He's definitly in serious contention. Right now I think the top three contenders for MVP are Rose, LBJ and Dwight Howard.
Rose and Dwight have less help than Lebron though, and I think voters might look to give the MVP award to somebody who hasn't already won a couple. In the end it might just come down to who has the best record out of Chicago, Orlando and Miami.
