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.”
