Game 1 of the 2011 Playoffs was not a disappointment. The Bulls, young and inexperienced but with the best record in the league and arguably the best player in the league, came real close to a disastrous start by losing their first game at home to a Pacer team with a 37-45 record and nothing to lose. Derrick Rose though did what he does best, stepped it up in the 4th quarter and led this team to the W. Rose finished with a career playoff high 39 points along with 6 assists 6 rebounds and 3 blocks. The 3 pt shot definitely wasn't there as he went 0-9, but when it mattered late in the game he had a couple of nice drives in the lane including an unbelievable layup where he was fouled and completed the 3 pt play. Derrick Rose proved today, what he has proven all season, he definitely deserves the MVP award. I really wish I would've jumped on Rose early in his career, as his stuff is way to high right now, as a matter of fact besides the auto'd ball that I have, I only have a few Derrick Rose cards, and this one is my best one. Numbered to 25, this 09-10 Panini Timeless Treasures Rookie Year Materials, is the patch parallel and features a nice two color black and red patch from a Rose jersey. If he keeps playing at this level, I'll probably never be able to afford another nice Rose card again!!
