NBA: Derrick Rose says his surgically repaired left knee is getting better and he is even jumping on it.
The Chicago Bulls’ superstar started doing that “a couple of days ago,” another step in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
Rose spoke Thursday at an unveiling of his new shoe and apparel line for Adidas.
James’ shoe bargain at $270
NBA: That $300 LeBron James sneaker? It won’t be $300.
In the wake of speculation that Nike’s impending James release would eclipse the $300 mark, Nike said that the top end of the “LeBron X” line will go on sale on Sept. 22 for $270.
That model, however, will include Nike’s high-end technology package. The more standard model of the shoe will retail for $180.
