Everything about Chicago Bulls stars Derrick Rose seems genuine and real… from his love for the game and his hometown of Chicago, all the way down to his newly introduced logo and its personal meaning. That’s what it broken down by the baller himself, in this newly released clip from Adidas.
This week, the NBA superstar’s new D Rose 3 sneaker and its accompanying apparel line was released by Adidas Basketball… and on each piece is his new logo, a rose-styled D, surrounded by three petals and a #1 in the middle. While in the clip, Rose’s voice vaguely explains what the logo means, here’s what it stands for: The three rose petals surrounding the “D” in the middle represent his three older brothers, who have guided him through life; while the #1 in the very middle represents his mother… the #1 person in his life, and of course, his jersey number.
The D Rose 3 sneaker and signature collection (shorts, socks, headwear, tees, jackets, hoodies) are available now at authorized retailers now, and Adidas.com.
