I’ve done lists before on the 25 best basketballs commercials ever. Given time, this new ad from adidas and Derrick Rose could eventually find its way into the conversation. This joint – titled “Wake Up” – will begin airing next week in conjunction with the worldwide launch of the D Rose signature collection and D Rose 3 basketball shoe on October 4. It’s meant to showcase the shock everyone in Chicago felt when Rose went down during last spring’s playoffs, but it ends on quite a high note.
