DEERFIELD, Ill. (AP) Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose insists the NBA has not informed him he has won the MVP, regardless of what teammate C.J. Watson has said on Twitter.

He said “no, not yet” Saturday when asked if he had been told he won the award.

Rose’s comment came a day Watson caused a stir by posting a congratulatory post on Twitter.

The message read: “Congrats to drose on winning the MVP he’s played unbelievable this season!!! now just need tibs to win coach of the yr.”

Rose is a top MVP candidate after averaging 25 points and 7.7 assists while leading Chicago to a league-best 62-20 record. Tom Thibodeau also is a favorite for Coach of the Year.

Rose made light of Watson’s post, saying “C.J. knows a lot of people. A lot of famous people, too, so watch that guy.”
