Scottish college student Brendan got the chance to fly to Chicago after winning an adidas “All In” contest to meet his basketball idol, Derrick Rose, and take in a Chicago Bulls game.

It’s been reported that the Bulls have offered a deal of Carlos Boozer and Nate Robinson to the Raptors for Andrea Bargnani and John Lucas III, available whenever Toronto decides to pull the trigger. However, the Raptors are reportedly not interested in Boozer’s $40+ million salary.
