Derrick Rose's career with the Bulls has been filled with success but also plagued by injuries. Rose has exceeded expectations since being drafted No. 1 overall and has been one of the NBA's brightest stars during his career. These are his five greatest accomplishments so far.
Rose was a part of the gold medal-winning Team USA in the 2010 World Championships where he averaged 7.2 points, 3.2 assists and 2.1 rebounds. Rose is currently a part of the 2014 World Cup team.
Rose was named to the All-NBA First Team in 2011 along with LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant and Dwight Howard. It is the same season Rose won the MVP Award.
Rose was named the 2008-09 Rookie of the Year after leading the Bulls to the playoffs. Rose was the third player in franchise history to win the award. He averaged 16.8 points, 6.3 assists and shot 48 percent from the field in his rookie campaign.
Rose was named an All-Star in three consecutive seasons (two-time starter) in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Rose scored 14 points in the 2012 All-Star game.
The highest honor Rose has received is the 2010-11 MVP award when he became the youngest player ever to earn the award at 22 years old. Rose averaged 25 points, 7.7 assists and 4.1 rebounds in a breakout season.
