|Bulls' Rose Says He Hasn't Been Informed He's MVP
|DEERFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose insists the NBA has not informed him he has won the MVP, regardless of what teammate C.J. Watson has said on Twitter.
He said ``no, not yet'' Saturday when asked if he had been told he won the award.
Rose's comment came a day Watson caused a stir by posting a congratulatory post on Twitter.
The message read: ``Congrats to drose on winning the MVP he's played unbelievable this season!!! now just need tibs to win coach of the yr.''
Rose is a top MVP candidate after averaging 25 points and 7.7 assists while leading Chicago to a league-best 62-20 record. Tom Thibodeau also is a favorite for Coach of the Year.
Rose made light of Watson's post, saying ``C.J. knows a lot of people. A lot of famous people, too, so watch that guy.''
