NBA's youngest MVP doesn't know what he's going to do with his millions, but said he'll never forget where he came from: the rough streets of Chicago's south side.
Derrick Rose is 23 years old and a very, very rich man.
The Chicago Bull and reigning MVP of the NBA is with the team for the next five years, having signed a $94 million contract extension this week.
What he's going to do with those millions he's not yet sure, but he said he'll never forget from where he came: the rough streets of Chicago's south side.
He said he's going to try to do more to build the area back up.
"That's what I have been thinking about, especially in the future, just building, especially starting with my neighborhood, Englewood, building it back up first and trying to expand from there," said Rose. "I haven't really thought about it, but when I do think about it and get an idea, you'll hear about it."
In September, Rose unveiled a renovated playground at Murray Park, where he honed his childhood hoops skills.
