Adidas Basketball continues its behind the scenes coverage of Derrick Rose in the the latest episode of it “The Return of D Rose” documentary series. The first episode, called “Belief,” caught the Chicago Bulls point guard shortly after his season ending knee injury. Episode two, titled “Hope,” finds D Rose talking about having to watch the rest of the NBA Playoffs from home, heading to Cali to rehab and tight knit circle of friends he keeps around.

“The whole time the playoffs was going on I only watched a couple of games from every series, but I wasn’t into it like I was if I was playing,” says Rose in the clip. “I know that’s going to push me to work even harder … thinking of them winning the championship. It’s just going to drive me and I know I’m gonna have another year.”

Check out some photos of the Chicago native’s latest Rose 773 shoe in the gallery (adidas will be unveiling his latest signature model, the D Rose 3 next week) . Watch the the “Hope” episode of “The Return of Derrick Rose” below.
