Bulls G Rose guarantees multiple championships
Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose doesn’t lack for confidence.
The NBA’s Most Valuable Player guaranteed to HoopsHype.com that he expects to own more than one championship ring.
“I won’t be satisfied until I win a championship. I’m not satisfied at all,” he said. “There’s not a doubt in my mind that I’m not going to win a championship. I’m going win multiple championships. It’s not a doubt in my mind.”
Rose became the youngest player ever to win the league’s MVP honor.
The 22-year-old Rose averaged 25 points, 7.7 assists and 4.1 rebounds this season to guide the Bulls to first place in the league with a 62-20 record. In 2009-10, Chicago finished eighth in the Eastern Conference with a 41-41 record.
Rose became the fifth player to record 2,000 points, 600 assists and 300 rebounds in a season, a feat achieved by Michael Jordan, Oscar Robertson, LeBron James and John Havlicek.
The first overall pick of the 2008 draft, and subsequent Rookie of the Year, Rose was named a starter to the All-Star team last season for the first time and also became the first Chicago player since Jordan in 1998 to win the MVP.
