Derrick Rose was born and raised in Chicago. He won two state championships at Simeon Career Academy High School and was rated by scouts as one of the top point guard prospects in the country. He then went to college at the University of Memphis where he played for their NCAA Division I team, The Tigers. His team reached the NCAA national championship game in 2008, but were beaten by Kansas in overtime. Rose then declared for the 2008 NBA Draft. With only a 1.7% chance at the first pick through the Draft Lottery, the Chicago Bulls defied the odds and selected Rose first overall, thus bringing him back home after only a year away from Chicago. In his rookie year in the NBA, Rose was voted the Rookie of the Year and was also selected to the All-Rookie Team. He was then selected as an NBA All-Star for the 2010 NBA All-Star Game in his second season and also named a starter for the U.S. team at the 2010 FIBA World Championships, where they won the Gold Medal. In 2011 he was again selected as an NBA All-Star, this time as a starter. He also made history, becoming the youngest player ever to win the NBA Most Valuable Player Award at 22 years old.
