Piggybacking on Srirachana's post below, earlier today at the adiZero Rose 3 launch, there was an emotional moment where Derrick shed humble tears of reflection — both personally on what he and his family overcame growing up in Englewood, and with everything going on in our hometown (the crime and the CPS teachers strike which Rose tweeted on the other day) that we really feel Rose cares about. It was simply an incredible moment that epitomizes once again why Chicago roots so hard for one of their own, one who represents the city and one who rises above. Yup, adidas got it right: D. Rose will rise.
