NBA Rookie of Year BasketballIt shouldn’t come to anyone’s surprise that the Chicago Bulls’ guard Derrick Rose is the rookie of the year.

The speedster who attended the University Of Memphis, and who is also a homegrown product of Chicago grabbed 111 out of the 120 first place votes to finish up with 574 total points…

Right now the hometown kid and his squad are dueling against this writer’s beloved Boston Celtics in the first round of the playoffs, and he’s playing with no fear (as he should).

And if his rookie season is a sign of things to come, the executives that run basketball operations for the Bulls better get out their check books come contract-extension time, because a player like him will keep fans in the seats just like some guy named Michael did once upon a time…
