Derrick Rose Tears ACL, Nike Exec Blames Adidas

The NBA landscape was altered dramatically yesterday afternoon when Bulls MVP Derrick Rose blew out his knee well after the outcome of the game was determined. 

Not only do the Bulls Finals chances dip dramatically without their best player, the Celtics and Heat are the biggest beneficiaries of his injury as they basically have a BYE until the ECF's. The injury has long standing implications next year as well and if anyone is keeping score at home Iman Shumpert(another Adidas rep) blew out his knee in the Knicks-Heat game right after.

Look away if you're squeamish at heart, a Bulls fan or an NBA fan in general.

Jason Petrie the mastermind behind the LeBron 7, 8 and 9's took to Twitter to take advantage of a marketing opportunity. Here's what he had to say on his Twitter.

Pooh being Derrick Rose's nickname given to him by his Grandmama. The #GWS get well soon hashtag was a nice touch.

Stay classy, Nike.
