The man is an amazing player who just seems to get better and better. He's the single reason I have the Bulls ahead of the heat this year in the east during the regular season. That said, I do believe the heat will make the NBA Finals. The Knicks are obviously getting closer, especially if they can get healthy and add a piece in March like Kenyon Martin.
But Rose is the game's best player in my mind.
We've seen similar skill sets as it relates to strength and explosion, but Rose somehow seems stronger and more explosive than the young editions of the likes of Baron Davis, Marbury and Steve Francis.
