Derrick Rose was all smiles when showed off his new signature shoes, the DRose 5 Boost, yesterday in downtown Chicago. The first 50 people who lined up at the Footlocker got to actually meet Rose who is coming off a couple of impressive preseason games where he scored a total of 57 points, shot 59% and hit 7 of 12 3-pointers.
“I think the whole preseason I’ve been switching up my gears,” he said. “I haven’t been playing at one pace the entire time. You see little bursts of speed here and there. You don’t get a steady diet of it. I’ve been trying to use little things in my offensive game, floaters, using the backboard on my floaters, hitting my jump shots. Just using little things to keep them off balance.”
Rose also talked about being ranked #28 on the now infamous and controversial ESPN list that KD & Kobe didn’t care for.
“I mean, I hear about the rankings here and there,” Rose said. “But I know where I am with my game. I know I’m not a top-30 player, I know I’m much higher. But everyone has their own opinions, so I can’t get mad.”
Here’s a look back at what Rose did during the preseason.
