    Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose made an appearance at a mall in Florida on Sunday, signing autographs for the NBA All-Star weekend.

    Rose was also promoting the launch of his new shoe, the Adizero Rose 2.5.

    Fans waited patiently at the Florida Mall in Orlando, to get a close-up glimpse of the rising star, and for a lucky few, even Rose's signature.

    The scene was markedly different from the melee that happened at that same mall Thursday night, after the release of another basketball shoe. That launch was postponed after police in riot gear closed down the mall and made everyone leave.

    All indications are Sunday's event was a much more orderly affair.
