Derrick Rose’s NBA career has been on the downswing since his MVP season, with injuries taking a major toll on his body over the years. Nonetheless, the current Cleveland Cavaliers point guard still has a strong fan base across the globe – perhaps nowhere stronger than in China.
Rose made a stop in Shenyang to promote his new shoes Saturday, according to Dan Gartland of SI.com. There, he saw a tribute video featuring a number of fans from the country expressing their love for the three-time All-Star.
The warm messages tugged on Rose’s heartstrings, as he became openly emotional after viewing them.
