Today in NBA Sneaker History: Derrick Rose Drops 29 Points, 16 Assists on CP3 in the adidas adiZero Rose 2

It’s been a roller coaster ride for Chicago Bulls fans this season. After the long-awaited return of standout point guard Derrick Rose, the Bulls hit a snag in late November as Rose tore the medial meniscus of his right knee.Unfortunately, the injury woes didn’t end there, as Joakim Noah and Luol Deng have also missed time recently.

As the Bulls look to get back on track, Rose continues to rehab and hopes to join his Chicago teammates on the bench in the coming weeks. Tonight, the Bulls will head to Memphis to take on the Grizzlies in what promises to be an evenly-matched contest.

Derrick Rose might be out right now, but hopefully it’s only a matter of time until he’s back in top form. Like on December 30, 2011, when the Bulls hit the road to face the Los Angeles Clippers. LAC came into the game armed with an incredibly strong starting five, including Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, and Caron Butler. However, the Bulls proved to be too much to contain as they rallied to a 114-101 win. Joakim Noah and Luol Deng both chipped in 19 points, but it was Derrick Rose who took over the bulk of the workload with 29 points, 16 assists, and 8 rebounds. Performances like this are exactly why Chicago fans can’t wait for Rose to be healthy again.

Earlier today, the latest D Rose signature model was officially unveiled. adidas has been lacing Derrick Rose in signature models since April 2010, and during this 2011 performance he was in the adidas adiZero Rose 2. Inspired by the adiZero Crazy Light, this model featured elastic straps for support and was worn by Derrick Rose as he finished his first MVP season.
