Derrick Rose is still alive, but not at the same level as last season.
The Chicago Bulls star has not missed a game in nearly three years.
Now, the NBA is looking at the player who was voted to the All-Star Game as a player who will be inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame in 2021.
Here are five things you need to know about Derrick Rose, the star of the Bulls and one of the best point guards in NBA history.
He is an All-NBA selection, but the Bulls aren’t done yet.
The Bulls are hoping to select Rose as an All “B” player for 2021.
But, he’ll have to make the cut for the team to be eligible for the All in the First All-Defensive team.
Derrick Rose’s impact on the Bulls was so great, he was voted as the Most Valuable Player of the 2020 NBA season.
Derrick had a huge impact on this Bulls team, averaging 16.9 points, 8.9 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 2.2 steals per game.
The best part about Derrick is that he was one of only two players to have three different All-Stars, along with Michael Jordan, and he was also voted to be the league’s Defensive Player of The Year in 2020.
Derrick’s numbers are still amazing, but he has only missed 15 games since the season started.
He averaged 13.1 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.6 steals per contest in 2020, and the Bulls were ranked No. 5 in the NBA at the time of the All Star break.
Derrick was voted MVP in the 2021 All-Pro game, but will be eligible to be enshrined in the Hall of Famer’s Hall of fame.
Derrick, along the Bulls, led the league in assists, steals, scoring and field goal percentage.
He was voted the league MVP in 2020 and was voted a second team All-American and All-Decade team.
The MVP is only part of the story.
The team won the All Stars title in 2019, but Derrick missed the playoffs due to injury.
His injury didn’t hurt the Bulls too much, as they went on to win the NBA title.
Derrick is also the only player to lead his team to the NBA Finals in two of the last three seasons.
This year’s Bulls team is primed for a run at the title.
Here’s what you need.
The Bulls will have a lot of firepower in the backcourt.
The backcourt of Derrick Rose and Pau Gasol is a force to be reckoned with.
The three-time MVP and All Star guards will be able to guard almost any team on the court, including the Golden State Warriors.
They also boast one of NBA’s best backcourts.
Derrick and Pau both have a good shooting touch, and both are excellent passers.
Pau’s shooting is elite and his passing is elite, too.
He has averaged 26.5 points per game, and can hit the big shots with his wide range of skills.
The MVP award is up for grabs.
Derrick will be the first player in Bulls history to earn a vote to the MVP, but Pau will get the nod.
Pau averaged 15.1 assists and 7.6 rebounds per game last season, and his game-changing dunks and floaters are one of his most effective weapons.
Derrick is one of two players in NBA History to have played in five All-Time NBA Finals.
The other was Jerry West, who played in four All-star games and won three MVPs with the Houston Rockets.
Derrick also has one of basketball’s best statistical seasons, averaging 20.4 points, 5.9 assists and 5.6 assists per game in 2019.
Derrick won the MVP in 2010, but missed the 2017 All-Durant MVP award due to injuries.
Derrick was the first All-Defense player to win MVP.
The rest of the top five are still playing well, but there are a few players who could be in contention for the award.
Derrick has led the Bulls to back-to-back titles, and Pau has been among the league leaders in steals, assists, rebounds and field goals made.
Derrick Rose was voted Most Valued Player of 2020.
Derrick averaged 20.3 points, 7.1 rebounds, 4.9 steals and 3.4 blocks per game during the 2019-2020 season.
Pau Gasoline is also one of three players to win All-America honors.
Derrick and Paul Pierce are the only players to lead the NBA in blocks, assists and steals per 48 minutes.
Derrick led the NBA with 3.3 blocks per 48, and Paul’s 3.5 assists per 48 was also the highest among all players.
Derrick’s offensive efficiency was tied for the league-best in 2020 with Russell Westbrook.
He finished with a league-leading 17.9 field goals
