I can dance. But there’s a time and place for that. And I don’t think that it was then and there.
Derrick Rose, on this year’s All-Star game intros. (Skip to around 4:48 to see what he’s talking about. Coach Thibs and Luol Deng make appearances too.)
Wanna party with D-Rose and bunch of other basketball/football dudes? You can Friday. Apparently Floyd Mayweather is throwing an MVP party for Rose at Excalibur. Why Mayweather? Who knows. Maybe he’s moving out of boxing and into hosting parties full time? More details about the event here.

At 22 years, 7 months, Rose will become the youngest MVP in NBA history, supplanting 1969 winner and Hall of Famer Wes Unseld by roughly five months. And he will do so by taking a huge jump, becoming the first MVP winner since Dave Cowens in 1973 to win the award without receiving one vote the previous year.
We’ve been chanting it for a while, but it still sounds good: MVP! MVP! MVP!
