Derrick Rose Named NBA Rookie Of The Year

Despite heavy competition from a strong rookie class, Bulls point guard Derrick Rose was a runaway winner today in the voting for the NBA’s Eddie Gottlieb Trophy as the 2008-09 T-Mobile Rookie of the Year.

Rose was officially presented with the award at a news conference at a North Shore hotel. He also will be presented with it again before Game 3 of the Bulls’ first-round series with the Boston Celtics on Thursday night at the United Center. Commissioner David Stern is expected to be on hand for the honor.
