Meeting the King

Think you're Derrick Rose's biggest fan? The title might have to go to a 15-year-old from Omaha who got a big surprise last weekend during NBA All-Star Weekend.

The folks at adidas explain:

To reward their most passionate and active fans of the adidas Basketball Facebook page, adidas and Derrick Rose surprised Adam Turner, 15, of Omaha, Nebraska, during his review of the adizero Rose 2.5 during NBA All-Star Weekend.

Adam is an avid reviewer of Rose's signature shoes and adidas flew him to Orlando under the guise that he would be the first person to review the NBA All-Star edition of the adizero Rose 2.5. Adam got a big surprise when Derrick popped on the video set to help him finish his review and he also enjoyed access to all NBA All-Star events courtesy of adidas.
