Derrick Rose spoke at an adidas event in Madrid and said he would be ready to rock and roll for the start of next season.

Derrick Rose is currently barnstorming around Europe on an adidas tour, with his most recent stop coming in Madrid. It appears that HoopsHype was in attendance at the event, as they tweeted out a few things that Rose said:
