With another summer of uncertainty surrounding his career on the horizon, Derrick Rose is joining rare company as part of the select group of athletes to reach a ninth signature sneaker. Tech information hasn’t officially been revealed, but the Adidas D Rose 9 features a knit build, bootie construction with an extended pull-tab, speed lacing and AdiWear rubber. Boost cushioning appears to be out of the mix and replaced with Bounce, which would likely result in a price reduction from the D Rose 8’s $140 tag. This particular colorway, almost Spurs-like, is highlighted by festive, multicolor detailing along the lining and outsole.
He led all rookies in scoring with 20.5 points per game in the regular season then became the first rookie to lead a playoff team in scoring since Carmelo Anthony. “I was a teammate with Derrick Rose when he was a rookie, Russell (Westbrook) and (Kevin Durant) when they were young in their first two seasons in OKC, and the talent level is right up there with those guys,” said Jazz veteran Thabo Sefolosha. “He’s fearless, relentless. He goes and has incredible confidence in his ability, and he’s just a good overall basketball player and I’m surprise that he was able to show it this early, but I think that he showed even in the summer of us getting ready in practice in stuff that he’s going to be great for years to come.”
Are Thibs &/ or The Wolves considering bringing back Derrick Rose and, if they are, what does that mean for Tyus Jones? Jon Krawczynski: No question that they are interested in bringing Rose back. Thibs certainly heard plenty of questions when he first brought Rose in. But in that role as a combo guard off the bench, Rose was good. He played solid defense, scored well and was a great teammate. […] There is also no question Rose is interested in continuing to play for Thibs. These last few years have been chaotic for him and he wants to play for a coach he knows and trusts. What does that mean for Tyus Jones? His playing time dwindled late in the season and in the playoffs as Rose’s increased. He certainly would seem to be a candidate to be traded.
