Will Derrick Rose ever fully recapture the greatness he displayed in earning the NBA MVP award at an age younger than any previous recipient? D-Rose is still rehabbing a catastrophic knee injury suffered during the opening game of last season’s playoffs, but adidas continues the rollout of his third signature as a reminder that even if Chicago’s 1 isn’t on the court come opening day, the Bulls are still a threat the second he returns. The adidas Rose 3 ‘Alternate Away’ reads like a traditional Bulls road getup, but even with a colorway matching some of Michael Jordan’s most famous, it’s just a bit off until Derrick himself rocks them on court. You’ll have your chance first, with a Thursday, November 1st release at adidas Sports Performance locations in Chi-town and New York, plus the adidas Basketball e-store, and you can see more images below in the meantime.
