Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose told CNN's Pedro Pinto that he is the best player in the NBA during a recent interview.

Rose, who missed the entire 2012-2013 NBA season while recovering from knee surgery, won the 2009 Rookie of the Year, as well as the 2011 NBA Most Valuable Player Award.

In the interview, Pinto asked Rose who the best player in the NBA is right now, and Rose replied confidently; "Derrick Rose."

Rose has averaged 21.0 points-per-game, along with 6.8 assists a contest, over his three NBA seasons.
