The NBA has made it official: Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose is the MVP.

Rose officially became the NBA's youngest MVP on Tuesday. He joins Michael Jordan as the only Bulls players to win the award after a spectacular season in which he led Chicago to the league's best record. Rose got 113 first-place votes from a panel of media voters.

Orlando's Dwight Howard finished second, Miami's LeBron James was third, the Lakers' Kobe Bryant was fourth and Oklahoma City star Kevin Durant finished fifth.

Rose is in his third year with the Bulls.
