Derrick Rose, Charlie Villanueva

Derrick Rose says he doesn’t know anything about being MVP. Yet.


Derrick Rose will be announced as the NBA’s MVP in the coming weeks. We all know it.

But it’s not official yet. So it was a bit of a shock when Bulls guard C.J. Watson tweeted Friday:

Congrats to drose on winning the MVP he’s played unbelievable this season!!! now just need tibs to win coach of the yr

Rose said after the game he has been told nothing official yet by the league. But maybe Watson knows something Rose doesn’t.

“C.J. knows a lot of people around here, a lot of famous people. A lot of famous people,” Rose said. “So watch that guy.”
