You’d be hard-pressed to find another professional athlete who has experienced a more high-profile rise-and-fall over the last decade than Derrick Rose. The former No. 1 overall pick went from being the youngest MVP in NBA history—who led his hometown team, the Bulls, to the Conference Finals at the age of just 22— to becoming a reserve for the Cavaliers who occasionally skips out on his team midseason without much explanation. The main culprit behind this transformation for the worse was a string of injuries that hampered Rose’s ability to stay on the court. But according to a pretty shocking new Sports Illustrated report, Rose’s fall from grace hasn’t hurt his pocketbook much, as it appears as though he has continued to rake in a ridiculous amount of money from Adidas despite his lack of production in recent seasons.

50 thoughts on “Derrick Rose’s Leaked Adidas Contract Reveals How Much He’s Still Getting Paid Off Deal”
Adidas is actually likely to keep paying Rose because of his huge, and I mean HUGE, fanbase, especially in China. Adidas makes so much money from Derrick Rose's endorsements because of how much fans across the world love him.
Check out this song tribute to d rose
Shout out to D Rose for hustling them white folks out they paper ✊🏿
He doesn't care about fuckin money because he's got the FUCKIN money.
Let him have 200 bucks in his account and bills averaging 3k a month.
My boy d still got that bagg he will never be broke i mean never
Its not rose fault all he do is ball. Get that money rose
Derrick Rose and his agent finessed the shit out of adidas, shout out to his agent for securing the bag for Rose, even if they try to get out of the deal he done already made millions off them
Nah, Addias is NOT good for these guys to wear, Rose bruh C'Mon Man!
Its not thnx to adidas its thnx to drose is the shit n adidas tried to take advantage and use rose to make money but drose dont give a fuck boit that money but if they tried to bs him hell sue the shit outta adidas. Adidas dont take it personal its just business
In the famous words of Detroit's own Jalen Rose and I quote " In life or sports..you never get what you feel you deserve..you get what you have the leverage to negotiate." End of story. Do you Derrick Rose!
If you think this is something. Check out Christaino Ronaldo’s $1 billion lifetime contract. Yup you read that right.
Who cares his washed up
GOTT DAMN!!!! He won't go broke puttin his people on!! #SALUTE
And he gets his own shoe every year
Who the fuc* is his agent!
haha finesse game strong even got his fam into the contract deal so they can get paid haha good shit
Rose got unlucky with lots of injuries. He did deserve the MVP the year he won it.
Now I regret not buying his Shoes, I was about to. But I changed my mind.
Laaaa la la laWait till I get my money!!!!
Dude is the biggest flop to adidas. I'm pretty sure if adidas can take that deal back they would.
nd he's playing well in the playoffs as we speak…addias better stand by that man despite his injuries you never know when someone turns it around.
Let that man get money. Haters. Hes lived a life only some of us could hope to live. He winning
It's 20 million a year
Suckaz!!! You were stupid enough to reject MJ and yet you sign this foo?
Rose is a smart man
now this man just stated Rose is getting 185 mil. and Kawhi is getting 20 mil. and Rose isn't even peak. don't y'all think Kawhi is worth that if not the same. and they say something about the rep for shoe has to be vocal because Kawhi doesn't say much. when have we ever heard Rose be vocal ? I rest my case.
D Rose took care of all his fucking peeps !!!!!! tho ! Facts Damn !
I think that Deal gives D ROse a little leverage in the league, Addidas put pressure on the league to make sure he got 1 of those 500 spots. Too much of an investment to keep paying him if he retired. So as long as he wants/can play he will prob have a spot next few years.
Money aint a thing if you got it
I never gonna see a player like Derrick Rose in his Chicago Bulls era. Definitely a beast. #Drose
Not caring about no money means he cares about money, right?
Adidas is cursed big time
Finesse kid lol
He’s a future half of failure
Good for d rose I'm happy he got paid I hope he invests it wisely . The dudes got a wife and kid thats what really important Not basketball .
Get that bread D.Rose….tightwork
He ain’t trippin
Your shit is Wack and you need to hire me. Being a guy who played in league and Europe and sponsored by MJ you need my hook
But all of that news turning d'rose shoes as one of the best basketball shoe at the market even this year 2018
He look like meek mill in the thumbnail.
Get you're money
He leaves to take care of his Gang Rape Charges
That boy got himself some gooood lawyers/agents👌
Damn Rose is a real 1.. he put his homies and his family on lol
I relate to d rose a lot I really hope he finds peace of mind
Derick Rose’s agent is the real MVP. Lol fucken 🐐
