“I think it would have been as devastating as Derrick Rose’s ACL injury [in 2012] was to adidas,” one industry marketing source told The Vertical. “Nike has the brand equity to survive injuries to their signature athletes. When injuries happen to star players at competing brands, consumers often assume it’s the fault of the sneaker brand the athlete is wearing. Yet, with Nike, consumers never blame the product.”

“I wasn’t consistent enough. I had good games, average games, decent games and some terrible games. I don’t want to have terrible and decent games. Average games can get us over the hump. Really good ones can make us win.” Butler said he plans to work out with Derrick Rose in the offseason. “I think we will,” he said. “When we lose, you’ve got to find something to talk about, and why not talk about that? That’s a great story. I think that has nothing to do with anything. But, yeah, we’ll work out together and figure out ways to make ourselves coexist.”

Rose interjected during a question about how the team’s struggles will affect his 2017 free-agency outlook, especially since the Bulls’ guard had just finished reiterating how his main goal remains bringing a championship to his hometown. “I’ll think about that when that time comes,” Rose said. “As far as right now, the only thing I can think about is this offseason. I’ve had that mentality ever since my injuries. I learned to deal with reality and live in the moment. I feel I’m doing all I can for this team, myself and my family. And that’s all I can control right now.”
“I always say to myself that people are going to appreciate me after I’m done,” Rose said. “Especially the players in the future when they look back on my career. Hopefully they learn from some of the things that I achieved and how I achieved them. “I sometimes feel people forget I’ve endured three surgeries, three rehabs. But even when I was younger, I always had the underdog mentality. People always would put people in front of me. I always had to fight my way to the top.
