ADIDAS biggest sponsor is no question Derrick Rose. The Bulls superstar point guard is recovering from an ACL injury, and ADIADAS is following Rose’s recovery. Recently ADIDAS recently the second video of Rose titled “The Return”. Check it out below.
Here is some of what Rose says in the video
“The whole time the playoffs was going on I only watched a couple of games from every series, but I wasn’t into it like I was if I was playing. I know that’s going to push me to work even harder … thinking of them winning the championship. It’s just going to drive me and I know I’m gonna have another year.
“I was just worried about my health. My trainers that’s back in Chicago that work for the Bulls – they interviewed people – they told me to come here to LA to (Athletic Performance). These things I never learned before, where I used to just go out there and just hoop. Just learning how to march again, walk, run all that stuff.”
Rose suffered the injury with 1 : 22 left in the game in a 1st round playoff game against the Philadelphia 76ers. He tried to leap off his left foot in the lane but on his way up you could see that he did something wrong to his left knee. There was no contact on the play and this is true of most ACL injuries. Besides this latest injury Rose was having an injury prone season. He missed tons of games and hurt a lot of different body parts. This is for sure a season last year’s MVP will want to forget.
The Bulls have made in clear that they will not rush Rose back to the court. They have hinted that he may not even play until after the ALL Star Break. I could see this happening as along as the Bulls are still in the playoff hunt if not fans will want him back a lot sooner.
