In this new commercial from adidas, Derrick Rose speaks about his love and dedication to the game of basketball. “Basketball is Everything” begins with Rose training for the upcoming season then cuts to various scenes that portray his life which include, outside of his home, at his birthday party with family and friends including hip-hop artists Common, 2 Chainz and Dom Kennedy, at a music video shoot with rapper Big Sean and at a famous high-end jewelry store with his brother Reggie Rose.
The commercial comes full circle by showing Rose training alone in the gym once again, emphasizing that even if you take away all of the aspects of his life that he feels so blessed to have, he would still have the one thing that matters to him most, basketball. Chills.
“Let me tell you something. If you took away the money. If you took away the fame. The spotlight. If you took away the lifestyle. And all the things that come with it. If you took away all the flash. What would you have left? Everything.” – Derrick Rose
