With Rose now intending to rehab the injured ankle before deciding whether to go under the knife, there’s a chance at least that he never sees the floor again for the Cavaliers.

It also stuck with Tiger Woods through his sex scandal in 2009. 1 overall in the NBA draft, was worth over $1 million per year for four years. Of course, Adidas could have also benefited from such arrangements. As the contract shows, Adidas can request that certain social media postings be made. “So, afterwards, we may have to have a procedure but who knows.”. Adidas executives were seated baseline at the Moda Center, adjacent to the Bulls bench, and watched the face of their brand head through the visitor's tunnel to the locker room after yet another season-ending injury. We’ve seen this happen before, though it doesn’t happen often. Take Reggie Rose, who is Derrick’s older brother, mentor and business manager. Kobe Bryant was aging. McCann: Like in any player endorsement deal with a major company, Adidas negotiated for language that would allow the company to exit its deal with Rose in the event he encounters controversy. Athletic endorsements have become somewhat of a Rorschach test.

Point being: Adidas and Rose have largely contracted away the possibility that they will ever face off against one another in court. That is true of the Rose-Adidas deal. At the same time, it’s hardly fair to blame Adidas. McCann: To put it mildly, Rose broke the bank with his Adidas contract. Adidas didn’t sign Rose to an endorsement deal. He was coming off his best season in the NBA. Neither Adidas nor Rose would likely want a court to solve any such dispute. Rose is hardly the kind of athlete Adidas would prefer to be the face of the company in 2018. Clauses were written into his deal that includes deductions if he did not make the All-Star team. If Rose files retirement paperwork with the league, the terms of any remaining years on the Adidas deal will not be paid out. McCann: Rose has repeatedly said that he owes much of his development as a player to his time in AAU and high school basketball. So far in 2017-18, Rose has played in 13 of the Cavaliers’ 50 regular–season games. Reggie Rose, Derrick’s older brother, is paid between $250,000 and $300,000 annually as a consultant. For more on Rose’s contract with Adidas, check out Michael McCann’s breakdown on SI.com. It’s possible the drive to win alone would be enough incentive. As a result, both are treated as separate entities for purposes of liability—a significant point for Rose given that he was (unsuccessfully) sued by a woman who claimed that he had raped her. And yet, according to records made available to SI, Adidas continues to pay Rose in full. The Derrick Rose contract with Adidas International Marketing illustrates such an arrangement. McCann: At different points in the contract, Adidas protected itself from being obligated to pay Rose. It’s not about that. The company also agreed to provide up to $50,000 worth of sneakers and other products to high school(s) of Rose’s choice. Rose wasn’t even sure that he wants to continue playing. Rose is being paid by Adidas along with his brother Reggie Rose, as well as his childhood best friend, according to a report from Sports Illustrated. Adidas also pledged to contribute $150,000 annually to the AAU team of Rose’s choice. The sports-apparel company has pledged $185 million to Rose over 13 years in an ambitious effort to attack Nike head-on in the $3.7 billion basketball-shoe market. And it could get humbling still for Rose, whose market might finally dry up completely come free agency in July. 1 overall pick from the 2008 NBA draft electrified his hometown Chicago Bulls in ways that were reminiscent of Michael Jordan. There are, of course, $80 million reasons why Rose would not retire at the age of 29. Like I said, coming back here, starting with rehab that’s my first step.
