Reigning MVP Derrick Rose turns 23 years young today. Sadly the Chicago Bulls’ star guard isn’t enjoying the day with his teammates in training camp, but probably honing his skills on a basketball court somewhere in Chicago. “Right now, it’s looking pretty tough, but to me I think the lockout is unnecessary. There’s no reason why billionaires and millionaires should be arguing about money. There’s other things in this world that we should be arguing about, but money shouldn’t be the problem.” Proclaiming his frustration for the lockout, Rose shows his drive and determination that helped him become an NBA MVP.
One of the new signature athletes for adidas Basketball, the 2010-2011 NBA season was not only a MVP year for Rose, but also the first year with his own signature shoe. The adiZero Rose released at the beginning of the season, and was followed by a mid-season version, the adiZero Rose 1.5.
Along with his signature shoes, Rose was also one of the featured athletes to showcase other adidas shoes like the Crazy8 retro and the 9-ounce Crazy Light.
Although we are not sure when Derrick Rose will be seen on the NBA hardwood again, we can expect to see his next signature shoe, the adiZero Rose 2, at retailers and the Sneakerpedia wiki very soon.
