Some of adidas’ top ballers ventured over to China for the Quick vs. Fast Tour from July 1 through July 5, demonstrating the quick and fast qualities of the new Crazyquick and adizero Crazy Light 3. John Wall, Ricky Rubio, Jrue Holiday, Damian Lillard, and Mike Conley made stops in Beijing, Shanghai, Xi’an, Guangzhou and Dongguan putting their kicks and skills to the test for fans, some of which adidas chose to participate in speed challenges and games against the pros.
While the boys were reaching out to China, Derrick Rose was on the D Rose Tour, covering adidas World Headquarters on July 5 and stopping in Milan on Jul 6 and 7. While in Herzogenaurach, Germany, D Rose checked out HQ, met with execs, and played adidas employees in basketball and ping pong competitions. Once in Milan, Derrick met with fans, and checked out the local Foot Locker store and NBA 3X event. Derrick’s tour continues through July 15 in Belgrade, Zagreb, London, Paris and Madrid, then switches over to an Asia tour from September 4 through 16 in Tokyo, Manila, Beijing, Wuhan, Shenzhen and Hangzhou. At the close of this leg, an event in Chicago will take place where Rose will get to connect with fans before the 2013-14 NBA season gears up.
