Derrick Rose's new commercial hints at comeback
Derrick Rose used to be the star of the NBA - he was picked as the league's Most Valuable Player during the 2010-2011 season. However, his dreams were cut short in the 2011-2012 season due to a torn left ACL in the first game of his the Chicago Bulls' playoff series against the Philadelphia 76ers. Some people may have thought the former-NBA star was all washed up, but he has actually been behind the scenes rehabbing his injury and preparing for his big comeback.
HypeBeast.com reports Rose will showcase his struggles and triumphs over the past year in a documentary series filmed by adidas Basketball. The company recently gave fans a glimpse into the upcoming film on its website. Rose fans can also discuss what they see on Twitter by sending insight and messages about the documentary preview to @drose and @adidasHoops.
New England Sports Network reports the preview of the documentary will also be used in new Adidas commercials. The clip shows Rose working out despite his injury and uses words like "hope," "focus" and "push" to describe how dedicated the athlete is to getting back into fighting form.
Although the brief clip shows Rose working out in order to make his grand comeback, there has been no new information pertaining to when the former MVP will actually be able to hit the court.
Rose, 23, should eventually be able to get back to the level he was at before, his doctor Brian Cole, told ChicagoNow.com.
"Statistically, he should be [the same] player, and then some," Cole told the news outlet after performing the surgery on Rose. "Age is absolutely in his favor. We do everything possible with the things that we can control to stimulate healing, and the best part about it is that he's 23 and he has outstanding healing potential."
