More NBA hardware is expected to be announced (unless CJ Watson has
already leaked the news) on Tuesday when Derrick Rose is expected to be
announced the 2011 NBA MVP. The award ceremony is expected to occur on
Wednesday, May 4th during game 2 against the Atlanta Hawks.
Let’s hope you go 2 for 2, @quietstorm_32.
