Derrick Rose is an NBA player currently on the Chicago Bulls. He won the MVP award in 2011 -- at 22 years and six months old, the youngest player to do so -- and the Rookie of the Year Award in 2009.
The Bulls selected Rose with the No. 1 overall pick in 2008 out of Memphis, making him the first guard to be drafted with the top pick since Allen Iverson in 1996.
Rose played one season of college at Memphis after growing up in Chicago.
After averaging 16.8 points and 6.3 assists per game as a rookie, Rose made his first All-Star in his second season after averaging 20.8 points and 6.0 assists. His shooting percentages improved across the board, as he made 48.9 percent overall, 26.7 percent from three-point range and 50 percent from two-point range. That season began his string of three consecutive All-Star appearances.
In December 2011, Rose signed a five-year, $94.8 million contract extension with the Bulls.
Later that season, Rose tore the ACL in his left knee during Game 1 of the playoffs against the Philadelphia 76ers. He had surgery on May 12, 2012.
Rose was given an estimated recovery period of eight-to-12 months. Although he returned to full contact practices in January 2013, he did not play at all during the 2012-13 season. The Bulls reached the postseason without him, losing to the eventual league champion Miami Heat.
Rose finally returned to action on Oct. 5, 2013, in a preseason game against the Indiana Pacers. After 10 regular season games that season, Rose had averaged 15.9 points and 4.3 assists per game, getting a decreased total of 31.1 minutes per game as he worked his way back from the injury.
On Nov. 22, 2013, Rose tore the meniscus in his right knee against the Portland Trail Blazers. He underwent season-ending surgery three days later.
