Despite not playing since the 2012 playoffs, Derrick Rose is still supremely confident in his abilities. So much so, that when asked who he felt was the best player in the league in an interview on Wednesday, he responded with a simple answer of: Derrick Rose.
When healthy, Rose is undoubtedly one of the best players in the league. He was the 2011 MVP, after all. But many would have a hard time picking a player who hasn’t played in more than a year over the four-time MVP and back-to-back Finals MVP in LeBron James. James is regarded by most as the best player not only in the league, but in the world.
Still, it is nice to see Rose confident, and now that he is 100 percent both physically and mentally, he should return to his pre-injury form as one of the most exciting players in the league.
