GUANGZHOU, CHINA — Basketball may not be in session, but the Derrick Rose MVP tour is in full throttle mode. Rose is making stops all across China in an Adidas promo tour that is spreading Bulls love all over the globe and strengthening Bulls Nation’s loyal fan following.
This week, Rose was in Guangzhou, China at the Guangdong Olympic Stadium to hold a basketball clinic for nearly 1,000 fans.
The Bulls MVP also played emcee during the Adidas Summer League South Conference Finals where he was the one handing out MVP trophies to the tournament’s top players.
Rose was joined by Hong Kong singer//songwriter Pakho Chau, even going as far as scoring once on Rose. The game ended shortly thereafter when Rose burned the Chinese celebrity with the blazing speed and skills that put him on this very tour.
It appears that Rose is spreading the joy of what basketball can be, during a time where the sport is being looked down upon and forgotten as the NFL begins to gear up and take full frontal attention in the States.
The D-Rose MVP Tour continues this week with Rose making stops in Beijing and Taipei.
