D-Rose Doesn't Care About the Money or the Fame in New Adidas Basketball Spot

180 L.A.'s New Spot Says It's The Game That Matters

Published on Oct 02, 2013

Editor's Pick

180 Los Angeles debuts "Basketball is Everything," a new spot featuring Derrick Rose alternately showing off everything he has -- fame, fortune, money (lots of it -- he reportedly earned $37 million last year) -- and then declaring it doesn't even matter. The spot, directed by Stacy Wall out of Imperial Woodpecker, is a stirring piece exploring the basketball star's dedication to his game, because even if you took all of the trappings of being a sports celebrity away, he'd still have absolutely everything that matters to him. The D Rose 4 basketball shoe comes out in stores next week.
