Those familiar with the NBA will be aware of the fact that not too long ago, last years MVP Derrick Rose signed a 5-year contract extension with the Chicago Bulls worth nearly $95 million.

As if that wasn’t enough, it seems as if D-Rose is rapidly approaching another astronomical payday. Word has surfaced that the point guard is close to signing on the dotted line with current sponsor Adidas for a fresh endorsement deal. At first this may fairly run of the mill, but wait….

According to ESPN‘s Marc Stein, one of his sources reports that the two sides are very close to finalizing a deal worth $250 million. Yes that is correct, two-hundred and fifty million dollars. Thats a hefty sum of dough to rep some sneakers don’t you? Can’t knock the hustle though, dude is getting his.
