Last time we checked in with Derrick Rose, he was in Croatia. This time, his world-wide tour has taken him to Paris.

From our friends at adidas:

Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls visited Paris July 12-13 where he met fans across the city and at several events at D Rose Place, a premium, stylish loft created for his visit to the city. He visited Playground Champs de Mars near the Eiffel Tower where he selected the final participant in a one-on-one tournament held at D Rose Place. adidas held a special party at D Rose Place that night where attendees included hip-hop artist Big Sean, Nic Batum of the Portland Trail Blazers and several other French athletes and celebrities.

The following day, over 800 fans packed the adidas store at Champs Elysees to meet Derrick during a special appearance. Derrick capped off his visit to Paris by holding the D Rose Academy for several youth players.

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.
