Derrick Rose Getting Mobbed By Fans (Video)

Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose is in his third NBA season. The Chicago native and Memphis alum has quickly developed into one of the best players in the sport.

This season, Rose has emerged as the favorite to take home NBA MVP honors, averaging 25.1 points and 7.9 assists per game. His great play has the Bulls on top of the Eastern Conference, with only six regular season games remaining.

Rose’s league wide popularity was on full display last week in Minneapolis, outside of the Minneapolis Grand Hotel. Take a look at this original video showing Rose getting mobbed by fans prior to the Bulls 108-91 win over the Timberwolves. Rose returned the favor by signing autographs for as many people as time permitted.
