Kobe didnt get robbed, D-Rose deserved the MVP, Coach T deserved his honors as well.

Rose is not of typical mindset in the NBA, this guy is special both physically and mentally and when you consider,a mere 22 years of age, wow.

Dwight Howard got robbed.Rose team success was do to the defense not because of Rose and most Bulls fans I talked to felt Lebron should have gotten it.Many people said that Rose wasnt consistent half the year and they hyped it to make him MVP.People get caught up with the superstar syndrome and the Heat was banged up all year.I think Lebron leaving Cleveland proves his case.Lebron was the most consistent star all year.Yes,the late game shots this year was horrible thats why I would say him and Howard.Rose isnt proving anything this post season why he is MVP.He is another underserved MVP just like Iverson was way back,I'm a Iverson fan but thats the truth.Rose got it because Lebron haters' took it away from him.Many people didnt even put Lebron top 10 for MVP on their ballet.That is just hating.Kobe definately wasnt top 5.Wade and Dirk played better.Dirk also should of been on that list of top 5.His team sucked without him.the list should have been 1.Lebron,2.Howard,3.Rose and 4.Dirk 5.Westbrook.Westbrook to me played aswell as Rose the whole year until the media kicked in and hyped Rose games.Yes,I watched him but Westbrook was as good.The Bulls biggest improvement was team defense this year and thats what kinda made Rose seemed like the MVP but if you watched his games on NBA tv he was not as great as people made him look.Rose is getting hyped like Kobe did.Stern is pimping Rose and that Chicago media.My MVP is Howard and Lebron.Lebron had the best performances this year and has been a better defender than Rose this year.Howard has the whole Orlando team on his back.Rose has improved but Deng has played great.Noah,Boozer and great role players I've watch who has step their game up.Great year Rose but not the MVP.They got it wrong again this year.

Like almost any season, many of the top tier players could have a legit claim to MVP, and their supporters can make strong cases for them; many names on here are strong contenders, but I certainly believe Rose deserved it...

Taking a small sample of Rose's game or games witnessed doesn't do his season justice... This season, as a whole, put his name on a list of players that averaged 25+ ppg, 7.5 apg, and 4+ rpg.
That club only had 6 members prior to Rose: Jordan, Robertson, West, Bird, Wade and James.(If that list doesn't seem to put it in perspective, try reversing it and think of all the greats that AREN'T on that list...)

Take into account that the Bulls had 2 of their 4 best players,(Deng is arguably just as important as Boozer or Noah,) miss a combined 57 games this year- painting an even larger bulls-eye on Rose from the opposition, and his accomplishments seem even more impressive.

Rose's stats put him in an elite group for individual accomplishments for a season, did it with two of the talents on his team missing big chunks of time, while leading the team to the best record in basketball this season.

And, as Kratos pointed out, he did it at the ripe old age of 22... It would seem the future is bright for Rose- I can understand points being made for other players, but I don't see how anyone can minimize what he accomplished this year.

Every sport, every year... There's always going to be controversy over that sport's MVP. It just wouldn't be any fun if everyone agreed 100% of the time.

Enjoy the playoffs!

Derrick Rose deserved MVP anybody thinking any different is blind. Stevie Wonder can see how this kid improved his game one year to the next. The work he put in and his mentality is beyond approach. He is a class act.
