It’s a sad truth, but injuries are very much a part of professional sports. There have been as many success stories as sad ones, but with a work ethic and determination like that of the star Chicago Bulls guard and former League MVP, it’s a bit easier to lean toward ‘success’. Had it not been for the knee injury in the Playoffs, Derrick Rose’s Summer could’ve been singing a much different tune; a potential re-match with the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals and a certain roster spot on Team USA is how Rose’s June, July, and August could’ve played out, but although Rose was not part of the roster, his fighting spirit is certainly with his NBA brethren currently vying for Gold. Here we have a look at a Olympic/USA Gold inspired colorway of the adidas adiZero Rose 773 that D-Rose might have been wearing at the Gold Medal Game (we already showed you a USA colorway), so check out angles below and cop your pair now directly from adidas.
