   ORLANDO, Fla. -- Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose didn't wince, didn't grin, didn't change his expression one tiny bit Saturday night when asked about his nonchalant proclamation last month that he should be considered a legitimate candidate this season for the NBA's Most Valuable Player Award.

He found nothing unusual about it, even if most everyone else did. Biding his time and paying his dues has never been his style.

After all, he arrived as the No. 1 pick in the 2008 NBA Draft, and went from Rookie of the Year his first season to NBA All-Star the next. So why not set his sights on being the best player in the world's best basketball league in his third year?

For him, it's the natural progression.

Maybe that's why the Chicago Bulls didn't hesitate when LeBron James went to Miami instead this summer. Maybe that's why they haven't tried as hard as they could have to trade for Carmelo Anthony.

They already have their budding superstar. And they might be better this season than anyone yet realizes.

"There is no point in playing the game if you're not trying to be the best. I'm just trying to be the best in the NBA,'' he said with his typical quiet confidence before the Bulls played the Magic Saturday night. "If that's not the case, retire and start doing something else.''

ďThe way I look at it within myself, why not? Why canít I be the MVP of the league,Ē he asked. ďWhy canít I be the best player in the league? I donít see why [not]. Why canít I do that?

You can Derrick! And right now there is no player in the league More Valuable to his teams early success than Derrick Rose. Huge roster turnover, new coach, and their prize free agent acquisition (Boozer) is out. Yet they are still 6-3 and winners of 4 straight. If they have success on the current circus trip he will emerge as the early leader.

Who's your pick?
