The Vertical's NBA Free Agency Show:

The Hype: Is Derrick Rose the best player in the NBA?

NBC on Yahoo Sports

In a recent interview Derrick Rose was asked to name the best player in the NBA. His answer: Derrick Rose. While the majority of fans would probably point to LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant before the Chicago point guard, the oft-injured Rose did win an MVP award in his last full season.

Michelle Beadle, who is an admitted former fan of Rose, thinks his self assessment is way off-base, saying "he may be the best player to have sat on the bench last postseason."
