adidas Sticks With Derrick Rose After Rape Case

Derrick Rose is still an Adidas athlete. In the wake of news breaking on Wednesday about Rose being cleared in the high-profile rape lawsuit brought against him, Adidas confirmed that it's standing with the three-time All-Star. "Our partnership with Derrick remains unchanged," the brand said in a brief statement acquired by ESPN's Darren Rovell. Rose and two friends were accused of gang raping his ex-girlfriend in August, 2013. Rose has been an Adidas endorser for the entirety of his NBA career and has long been a centerpiece in the brand's roster of professional athletes.
