Derrick Rose Visits Croatia (PHOTOS)

The Bulls star makes another stop on his European Tour.

Yesterday, we told you about Derrick Rose’s European Tour and its stop in Belgrade, Serbia. Rose’s next stop on the tour is in Zagreb, Croatia. Adidas is here to tell you about it:

Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls visited Zagreb, Croatia where adidas held a press conference at the Drazen Petrović Memorial Center where he received a special jersey from the late NBA player’s mother, Biserka Petrović, and toured the museum. Later, Derrick met fans who won a special contest through Facebook at an adidas Store, and then dedicated the newly refurbished Tuškanac “D Rose” basketball court with Croatian-born former NBA player Gordan Giriček and Croatian women’s national basketball team Olympic silver medalist Antonija Mišura.

Inspired by the exciting and attacking on-court play and smooth, understated off-court style of Derrick Rose, fans attending the tours will have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet and have unique access to Derrick through a multitude of premium, exclusive events including basketball demonstrations and games, contests, in-store appearances, social media and more.

The tour continues through July 15 with stops in London, England; Paris, France and Madrid, Spain. The Asia tour is September 4-16 and includes visits to Tokyo, Japan; Manila, Philippines and Beijing, Wuhan, Shenzhen and Hangzhou, China. The tour will culminate with a late September event in Chicago, where Derrick will connect with fans in his hometown before beginning the NBA season.

    The pictures of him and Drazen Petrovic’s mother are pretty cool. I was just in Croatia, really really nice place, I didn’t get to Zagreb though. One of the (many) things that makes me jealous of NBA players is the travelling they get to do!
