    It almost official, sources say Derrick Rose become the NBA's youngest-ever Most Valuable Player.

    A source tells NBCChicago the league plans to name the 22-year-old Bulls guard Tuesday. The last Bulls player to win the MVP award was Michael Jordan.

    Rose led the Bulls to a 62-20 record, the best in the league, and carried the team during stretches without teammates Carlos Boozer and Joakim Noah, who both spent time nursing injuries.

    He averaged 25 points, 7.7 assists and 4.1 rebounds in only his third season in the league.

    Rose will join Coach Tom Thibadeau in season awards. Thibs won Coach of the Year Sunday.
