On Thursday September 13th, Adidas were unveiling Chicago Bulls superstar Derrick Rose new shoe. What they didnt know was how emotional he would get after showing a video of Rose going through his rehab process. D.Rose tore his left ACL in the first round of the playoffs last season. Rose recently returned to the court to do some light shooting drills. During the launch of the shoe Rose said, “I’m starting to shoot now, I started to jump a little while ago, like a couple of days ago, where I’m still improving every week. My leg does get sore sometimes, but I’m able to fight through it, but my trainers and the people that have been working on me have been making sure that I’ve been doing a great job … I’ve been good.”
Derrick Rose had surgery back on May 12th, and the expected recovery time for him was a full 12 months. Bulls chairman Jerry Reinsdorf has made it clear that he will not let D.Rose play until he is 100% ready to go. While fighting back tears Rose said, “It’s truly a blessing. With all this stuff that’s going on in this city, a kid from Englewood got something positive going on. That makes me feel so good man. The shoe is great, all this is great, but I can’t explain this. I can’t.”
The official release date worldwide for the “D Rose 3″ is October 4th.
