LeBron James: Derrick Rose Is MVP (VIDEO)

The two-time MVP doesn't think he deserves the award this year.

LeBron James said before the Heat's win over the Wizards on Wednesday that he thinks Chicago's Derrick Rose is the front-runner for this season's MVP award.

"I think [it's] Derrick Rose," James said. "What he's done for that team, with all the injuries they have and them being first in the Eastern Conference -- they're playing some really good basketball."

Rose is averaging 25 points, 7.9 assists and 4.2 rebounds per game. The Bulls are leading the Eastern Conference with a 54-20 record.
