Derrick Rose

From the Series Basketball Heroes Making a Difference

Success in the NBA came early for Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose. His outstanding passing and scoring earned him the 2008-2009 Rookie of the Year Award. Then just a year later, at age 22, he was named the 2010-2011 Most Valuable Player, making him the youngest NBA player ever to receive this honor. Though Derrick is proud of his accomplishments, he knows that he couldn’t have reached his goals without the support of his family. It’s the reason he works hard to make a difference in other people’s lives. From providing backpacks to needy schoolchildren to pledging money to help victims of natural disasters—such as the people affected by the 2011 earthquake in Japan—Derrick Rose is a true basketball hero! In Derrick Rose, readers will follow this point guard’s amazing basketball career and discover how he has made a difference in people’s lives both on and off the court. Large, full-color action photos and engaging text will keep readers turning the pages for more.
