Derrick Rose to Endorse adidas

Derrick Rose to Endorse adidasIn a piece of somewhat surprising news, it turns out that Derrick Rose is to sign an endorsement deal with adidas.  While many believed he was set to follow in the footsteps of the last three top picks and ink a deal with big spenders Nike, he instead opted to join Kevin Garnett, Tracy McGrady, Tim Duncan and others at the German sportswear giant.

"The details are being worked out, and I’m very satisfied with the work my agent has done, and I look forward to representing adidas."

Translation: "I’m getting paid."

So, do you think Derrick Rose made the right decision by opting to promote adidas over Nike and others?  Is this all about the money?  Why didn’t Nike, the richer of the two companies, offer him more cash than their competitors?  Let us know what you think by commenting in the box at the bottom of the page.
