Derrick Rose has reportedly left the Cavs after suffering an injury back in October. The former MVP was forced him to play just seven games since the start of the season, which seemed to have discouraged for good the Chicago native, that since his first ACL injury back in 2012 is been living a true calvary, spending more time between surgeries and rehabs than on the hardwood. It looks like Rose is even considering an early retirement – at just 29 – tired of the continuous injuries that are mining his NBA career
And if on a personal side Rose is gathering nothing but nice words and encouragements from his teammates and opponent – like LeBron’s, that he’s waiting for him no matter what – on an economical side his retirement would have substantial effects. According to a report from ESPN, in fact, adidas could save up to $80M in case of a Rose retirement, not being forced to pay him the other seven years of his agreement with the German brand.
