    Seeing as NBA basketball won't be happening anytime soon, Bulls star Derrick Rose has had plenty of time for other pursuits.

    Such as filming a slick new Adidas commercial for the release of his new shoe, the adiZero Rose 2.

    The 60-second spot was filmed in Madrid, Spain, and features the reigning MVP showcasing his athleticism inside a bull ring, complete with a matador.

    The commercial will begin national TV rotation on October 5 on ESPN, the Cartoon Network and during NFL broadcasts.

    The shoe will appear in stores October 6 in home and away colors, and will eventually roll out in five additional colors. It'll be sold exclusively at Foot Locker and Eastbay for $110.

    And if the owners and players doesn't get their act together soon, it might not be the only time you'll see Rose playing in Europe.
