If and when D-Rose is crowned (but lets be serious), he will be the youngest MVP in history. Will he have a better career than Lebron?...Kobe?

It is possible. That is asking a lot though. We should mention Durant's name, too.
No we shouldn't. Derrick rose is the front runner in the mvp race by a significant margin. There's no one else out there guys. we have the youngest mvp in the league. Let's just hope we're in the playoffs long enough to enjoy it.
record wise, long as we get the 1st or 2nd seed in theEast, MVP.
To speculate is one thing, but to make a blasphemous thread title like that before anything is official... I just lost a lot of respect for the vendor. And yes, I'm superstitious about some things.
I don't think he will, based on the labor uncertainty. Rose is going to be a good player, but he may lose a lot of the supporting cast from this year because the owners want to cut salary.
Warning, the following may be Not Safe For Work or a storyline spoiler.
i think rose is a better player than kobe right now. This season, i'd rad rather have keith and rose than kobe and fischer.
i don't think he has the physical tools to be a better player than james. he's still a really good player though.
And to those who blow off Durant presently and for the future is ill-advised. He is as good as any player in the league not named Lebron in my opinion...a legit top 5 player. Durant was already on the pinnacle Rose reached this season...
If you ask Rose, why the team, and he, is playing so well, hell say, its thanks to his teammates. Rose has a slightly deeper team, than Durant, and yes, to quote houheffna, this aint a Cubs forum, and Rose aint Andre Dawson.
durant is just too one dimensional for me to put him up there...rose at least creates and is part of the best defense in the league. not saying he's an all world defender, but obviously he's not terrible.

People have posted many things...one guy posted "The Bulls are getting Lebron" last year...was that superstitious? I don't think so...

I think Wade is more talented than Lebron.
But handing Rose the award that he hasn't earned. This individual sells T-Shirts, why not sell Chicago Bulls 2011 NBA Champions shirts? Beat everyone to the punch! Makes just as much sense to me, as claiming Rose to already winning the MVP.
This is not like the Miami Heat celebration...which actually might affect MVP votes and has turned some of the media against them...THAT is a dumb move that sends the wrong message. And even that is not a curse...its just a dumb move.
Don't count your chicks before they hatch. LeBron James and Dwight Howard are still in the running for this hardware and every bit as deserving. Let's wait till they hand it out to go out awarding the MVP.
My post was about rose and the mvp. C'mon guys. Rose is getting the mvp. We don't have to worry about superstition. As to rose and durant, it'll be a fun battle to watch over the years.
Seriously though, i know theres like 13 games to go but Rose has been either 1st or 2nd in the MVP race basically the whole season and now the Bulls are in first and he's been in the drivers seat for quite a bit now. Most of the ESPN talking heads thinks its Rose. The guys on TNT say it too. Its basically a foregone conclusion around NBA circles that Rose is the front runner for MVP and good for him, he deserves it.
I have already posted in this thread...thrice! And I have said since then that things have changed....
Let the Bulls go on a 5 game losing streak and see how many people jump off the bandwagon. Depending on the criteria used, Lebron still has a very good chance to be MVP...best player in the league...having one of the best years statistically...so I find no reason to recant what I said weeks ago...
If the MVP was awarded today, he would get it.
But all it takes is LeBron or Dwight to lead their teams on a huge run (or Rose struggling through rest of year) to close out the season and it could very easily go to LeBron or Dwight.
All I'm saying is...let's wait until the press conference is called to decide who got it.
