Today on TV: You Can Strip D Rose of Fame and Fortune, But Not the Ball

Is Derrick Rose the new MJ?

Is adidas the new Nike?

Sacrilege.

But there’s no denying the comparison, or that D Rose badly wants to bring a championship to Chicago.

180LA taps into this roundball drama in the following spot, although it is hard to imagine the NBA superstar without his diamond-encrusted entourage.

Suspend disbelief!

 
The D Rose 4 basketball shoe is available now for presale at adidasbasketball.com and officially launches with the D Rose signature collection on October 10.
