SLAM Online ranking Derrick Rose as the 23rd best active NBA player isn’t the kind of MJ linkage you’d expect for a guy who will for many years to come be the youngest-ever MVP. It’s a ludicrous assertion that there are twenty-two players better than D-Rose at this moment, but their ranking hinges on the fact that Chicago’s favorite son can’t contribute all that much until he gets back onto the United Center hardwood. That’ll be next spring at the earliest, so keep your eyes peeled to see if the Bulls 1 starts off in his adiRose 3, or if he goes straight to the postseason/upgrade edition and opts for the adidas Rose 3.5. Today we see both home and away colorups and another that’s roughly inverted as compared to the ‘South Side’ Rose 3 we just showed you. Sneaker News will keep you posted on all the Derrick Rose adidas release dates and you can check out more photos below in the meantime.
