Rose Becomes First Bulls Star to Appear On Sports Illustrated Cover Since Jordan

Derrick Rose has led the Chicago Bulls to the #1 seed in Eastern Conference and is the odds on favorite to win the 2010-11 NBA MVP award, now the star point guard will grace the April 18th cover of Sports Illustrated.

In case you're wondering who the last Chicago Bulls player to be featured on the cover of SI, it was none other than Michael Jordan (January 25th, 1999). Jordan has appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated a total of 49 times.

The theme of the upcoming Derrick Rose issue revolves around the NBA's evolving usage of smaller, perimeter players as offensive catalysts, rather than the beastly post players that ruled the paint for years.
