The Twilight Sky’s High to the Hoop

The New D Rose 4 “Chicago Nightfall”

Adidas D Rose 4

Derrick Rose is Back in action for the 2013-14 NBA Season.  He’s already given Chicago a blast of excitement with a   swishing floater with less than 6 seconds left  to beat the Knicks 82-81 on Halloween. This week he has a slight set back with a sore hamstring, but he’ll be around this season to light it up in Chicagoland.

The new Adidas D Rose 4 Sneaker’s newest colorway Rocks the City of Chicago with accents of the City.  Including the purple that represents the twilight sky soaring above Lake Michigan. Growing up in Chicago, I know this color very well, It  wasn’t quite this bright when I lived there, but it sure was a sweet combination of purplish, grey toned Black. This color is embedded in my memory bank for the rest of my life. Nice how they Adidas designed these kicks with the sky-line in mind.

Also notice the purple, white, yellow and aqua accents in the lining representing Chicago’s City Lights or as someone who grew up in Chicago, the Summer hues that allowed us to play B-Ball into the night.

If I wasn’t on my annual October 1-December 18, no new kicks/no new clothes buying Time-Out, I would consider picking up a pair of these joints. I’ll just have to see what’s brewing in NYC on December 18 and Chicago on December 23rd. I so can’t wait until my self-imposed no new kicks no new clothes Time-Out is done.  For the rest of you, the “Chicago Nightfall” drop on November 21, 2013.

D. Rose is lookin’ Good!

Looks like D. Rose is getting pretty healthy. From the looks of this VID, He should be playing before Christmas. Last I heard he wouldn’t be back until April 2013.

At Christmas time I’m debating between seeing the Knicks play the Brooklyn Nets or the Chicago Bulls in NYC. Right now, I’m swaying towards the Nets-should be more celebs in the house. But if Derrick Rose is back, I’d for sure rather see the Bulls vs The Knicks. Does anyone know when he is due back on the court?
