But when think pieces start popping up around the Internet chastising those who view Chicago’s Derrick Rose(notes) as the player who singlehandedly has done the most to elevate his team on the court and in the standings—thus, the MVP by a very acceptable definition—something clearly is amiss. The case against Rose? He isn’t "efficient" enough. His defense is mediocre. His personal "win shares" calculation isn’t as impressive as some. He doesn’t dominate in any one statistical category. And so on, generally using evidence that comes more from slide rules than eyewitness testimony. What gets neglected is Chicago’s improvement, which has been in lockstop with Rose’s individual development. ... All the committee is saying is that Derrick Rose doesn’t have to be the best player in the NBA this season to be its most valuable. That’s where he remains in this week’s rankings.
