    It's only a quarter billion dollars. Goodness, he needs to feed his family!

    That is on top the $19 million/year he is getting from the Bulls.

    My God.

    Wow, and who says you need a education to be successful,lol. Hell Rose might not even be able to spell contract, let alone know the meaning of it, but he sure just received some nice pocket change to go along with his Team contract.

    The elite athletes make far more $$$ in endorsements than they do in salary.

    He earned it IMO though. Adidas really wasnt know for b ball shoe they have mainly known for soccer. Drose and his shoes has out sold Nike's Lebrons shoe that is quite the accomplishment IMO.

    I have never been a fan of the Lebrons they need better designers

    I will stick with my Jordans

    I would guess (besides Jordan currently) But he has put Adidas basketball on the map so he is really worth it.

    The commercials for Rose's shoes are pretty good as well. Lebron is probably the most hated player in the league which holds down his shoe sales.

    Jordan is almost 50 years old and has been out of the league for eight years. Incredible.

    I read that he still rakes in $40 million/year in endorsements.

    I doubt that is the reason I remember when I was a kid lol. I would never go near Lebron's because they just dont look good. I think my list of shoes would go.

    Jordans
    Kobe's
    Drose/ Eric Gordon's (I do like the ones that Josh Smith and Eric Gordon wear over the Drose's)
    Kevin Durant
    John Wall

    then Lebron's
    Under Armor

    I just dont like them and never have. Most of them just are ugly.

    I'm sorry but no player is worth that kind of money for shoes, just ridiculous IMO. But to each his own.


    Just like Pujols contract with the Angels....

    I'm going to trust Adidas and MLB history on that one.

    If the players earn that company/ team the amount on their contract plus any extra, then yes they were worth it. Can I say that they will for sure? No. However each of them have a ton of guys paid pretty good money to make those determinations. I'll trust their judgement on it.

    I agree, no one is worth that for even playing a sport, let alone for representing a shoe for a sport.

    Rose: it's shoes, enough said, $250 million??!?' I don't care how good Rose is, or what he does, that's nuts

    Pujols: He is sort of already trending downward, you saw it in the WS, aside from the one game he happened to hit three homers, he will be over 40 at the end of the contract, the Angels will regret this.

    I think baseball set the table for other sports (and now shoes I guess) with the ridiculous contracts.

    how is it ridiculous both make money for there companies. Pujols already paid for himself they got a new TV deal. Drose's shoes sell and has put Adidas basketball on the map. He makes a **** ton for Adidas and without him the shoe company would drop big time. Like it or hate it he is a huge draw.

    They did over pay Pujols in terms of winning in 7 years but he will still be a draw he is very marketable. This is a business and the goal is to make money and win. Not just winning.

    Adidas wouldn't do it if it wasn't worth it. If you don't like it, go play better bball than D-Rose.

    Or, don't buy Adidas shoes. If Adidas doesn't make money, they won't pay DRose so much to market their shoes.

    Sports shoes are a huge racket anyway. Production cost is something like $10. Nike or Adidas slaps on their brand and that adds $50 to the "value". Jordan or DRose tacks on their endorsement and that bumps up the price further. If you want to know how star athletes can get massive endorsement deals, blame those people willing to shell out $100+ for a pair of shoes (no offense p4e).

    Hey, it's a free economy. If you can get people to buy your stuff, more power to you.

    Fixed.

    I swear...these type of comments always bug me. I'm sorry, but this my biggest pet peeve. Just because a person don't have a college degree, it doesn't automatically mean the individual is stupid or lacking. I'm pretty sure that Rose knows how to spell contract.

    I don't have a college degree either (went to college collectively for 3 years), but I know that I have outperformed a LOT of people who do.
