Derrick Rose Overwhelmed By Emotion at Adidas Shoe Launch

This kid continues to amaze me.

Derrick Rose, after having achieved superstar status in his sport by single-handedly reviving the Bulls franchise (and fan base) with electrifying performance after performance, actually broke down in tears yesterday at an Adidas shoe launch.

Think about that people. Who does this? What 20-something millionaire, superstar athlete cries at a public event like this? Derrick Rose does. He does it because he has not forgotten where he has come from. His Englewood roots are strong and he obviously remains emotionally raw four short months after the devastating ACL tear that he suffered.

Here’s to you Derrick. Wishing you a full recovery and I’m glad that you got to sit still long enough to know that CHI-TOWN LOVES YOU. You are our adopted son Fam! Can’t wait to see you back out on the court, doing what you love to do. Much love.
