Derrick Rose “all in for Chicago” (video)

First, Robert Griffin III was all in for Week 1.

Now, it’s Derrick Rose’s turn. He’s “all in for Chicago,” although it took him 17 months to recover from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and he missed all of last season because he didn’t feel ready. Until now. And his state of readiness just happens to coincide with a  new ad for the launch of the D Rose 4 this weekend. Fancy that.

“It’s time to show the world that I can still do this,” he says. “I’m all in for Chicago.”
