The Finale of Adidas’ ‘The Return of D. Rose’

By// Chandler Rollins

Episode six, the culmination of the Adidas web series The Return of D. Rose, aired this week. The documentary following the Bulls point guard gave fans a glimpse into his rehabilitation and return to the court. In March, Derrick Rose tore his ACL in a playoff game against the Philadelphia 76ers.

In the web series, Rose opens up about his progress and the close relationship he has developed with his fans through the process. “My true fans, they know man,” the Chicago native said. “I’m never gonna stop. I know I got my family, my friends, and the city, behind me. I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for my fans. They mean a lot to me. I can’t thank them enough.”

As we all wait patiently for the NBA player to return, Rose ensures us that his recovery is headed in the right direction. “I’m good, man. I’m at peace with myself. Every week I’m moving on to something new. My core has gotten a lot stronger. Now I’m combining my lower body with my upper body and I’m doing it six times a week. All that stuff is definitely helping me build my body.”
