22-year-old Derrick Rose became the NBA’s youngest MVP on Tuesday and joined Michael Jordan as the only players in Chicago Bulls history to win the award.

With Rose winning the award, it was hardly a surprise after his spectacular season led the Bulls to the league’s best record at 62-20.

Rose outdistanced Orlando’s Dwight Howard by 539 points, who finished second. LeBron James of Miami was third, Kobe Bryant of the Lakers was fourth and Kevin Durant of Oklahoma City finished fifth.

A product of Chicago’s South side, Rose averaged 25 points and 7.7 assists while putting the Bulls in position to compete for an NBA title for the first time since the days of Jordan, Scottie Pippen and John Paxson.
