First Derrick Rose/adidas “the return” video released


As we told you before, adidas is chronicling Derrick Rose’s return from ACL surgery through a series of videos and interviews, and the first official one is out.

Rose has said before that while he worked out and worked on his game, he had never really worked on his balance, his core, the things a lot of athletes focus on. He hadn’t needed to. He does now. Which like he says could help him bounce back, although the biggest factor there is he is 23.

Rose is expected to return after the All-Star break sometime. He may want to come back sooner but the Bulls are saying they don’t want to rush him. Which is the right thing. This is about the next five years, not getting back for a meaningless January game.
