Derrick Rose was named CDW/IBM Player of the Month for October-November of the 2010 season, Bulls.com reported:
He's third in the NBA in scoring (26.6 PPG), eighth in assists (8.2 APG), leading in field goals and attempts per game (10.3 and 22). "He also became the ninth different player in NBA history to amass at
least 300 points and 100 assists in his team's first 12 games of the
season; Rose tallied 307 points and 101 assists in Chicago's first 12
games," Bulls.com added.
Rose's 24.99 Adjusted PER is 8th in the NBA. The category is led by who I'd pick as Player of the Month, Chris Paul (29.85). But, that's me. I'm not hatin'. Just sayin'.
Congrats to D-Rose!
