We gave you a preview of the adidas adiZero Rose that Derrick Rose will be wearing for the upcoming 2011 NBA All Star Game earlier this week. Bright yellow and blue may not exactly be what you’d expect as a colorway but it has ties to Derrick’s high school days at Simeon Rice Academy in Chicago.

With an averages of nearly 24 points per game and nearly 9 assists per game, Derrick Rose has played his way into the conversation for the best point guard in the League this season. In accordance, adidas Basketball has set him up with a special colorway of his first signature model, the adidas adiZero Rose. The adiZero Rose in this yellow colorway will mark the mid point of the season and lead into the transition to the adiZero Rose 1.5. With high scores in our adiZero Rose Performance Review, and the way he has put the shoe to use thus far this season, we can only expect that Derrick Rose will better his 8 point, 4 assist total from last year’s All Star Game.

The All Star Game colorway of the adidas adiZero Rose will be available in early February at Eastbay.
