NBA Chicago Bulls player Derrick Rose gets very emotional during  the launch of his Adidas D Rose 3 shoe promotion.  Rose, who hung his head in his hands. He took nearly 30 seconds to try to compose himself, using a tissue handed to him by one of his three brothers, who sat with their mother, Brenda, in the front row.

Finally, through all the tears, Rose spoke, even referencing the violence that has plagued his Englewood neighborhood again this summer.

“This is truly a blessing,” Rose said. “With all this stuff that’s going on in this city, a kid from Englewood (has) something positive going on. That makes me feel so good. This shoe is great. All this is great.

Just watching the video, It’s so damn touching to see someone of his magnitude to be soooo grateful and we all know here in Chicago….Derrick is very humble.  

We here in Chicago all LOVE you D.ROSE!!!!
