Derrick Rose is a name that could be on everyone's lips come the London 2012 closing ceremony. The young American Basketball phenomenon is already a household name in the United States, especially after winning the highly prized 2011 NBA Most Valuable Player award. This recent success comes after a meteoric rise to the top in one of the most competitive sports in the world.
Rose plays for his hometown club, the Chicago Bulls, and his journey is a true life story of a local boy who came good. Chicago has a rich Basketball history (ever heard of Michael Jordan?) and Rose could add to that if he steers them to a NBA Eastern Conference Finals victory in the coming week.
However, all eyes will be on him on the international scene in a years time as he tries to add the Olympic Games gold medal to the gold medal he won for the USA at the World Basketball Championships in 2010. On that occasion the USA went the whole tournament unbeaten.
