If yesterday’s performance was any indication, we very well might see Derrick Rose dethrone LeBron James as this year’s NBA Most Valuable Player. D-Rose is enjoying a career year that includes his best stats so far and easily his best campaign in terms of signature sneakers. Rose had not one but two special edition kicks for the All-Star Game and will now break out a St. Patrick’s Day edition adidas adiZero Rose 1.5 for next week’s holiday. These joints are done in a tonal green mix of suede and SprintSkin, a luxurious performance-oriented look that rivals the LeBron 8 V1’s SVSM colorway profiled yesterday on Sneaker News. We always thought it’d be LeBron vs. Carmelo or maybe LeBron vs. Wade that’d define the league but when it comes to explosive point guard play, a rose by any other name simply can’t compete.
