Anthony Davis Signs With Nike
Take a look at the corral of top tier athletes assembled for this year’s Team USA basketball squad and you’ll see it; Nike is running the roost right now as far as drawing in the biggest of NBA superstars to rock their gear. And as far as future NBA superstars none loom greater on the horizon at the moment then Anthony Davis, NCAA Championship winner and first overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. Yep, they got him too. While the details are still hazy, sources report that Davis has decided he will don the Swoosh upon entering the NBA in the fall. What will he be wearing when he hits the hardwood? Will Davis’ greatness result in a signature model somewhere far down the road? Let us know what you think and we’ll keep you updated as details from the Davis deal emerge, and continue ahead for a quick Q&A between Davis and Sneaker News from the Nike World Basketball Festival. via Darren Rovell
Sneaker News: We know the expectations that are laid ahead for you, being the #1 pick and all, but what’s going through your mind when you realize that you’ll be playing alongside Kobe, LeBron, and the rest of Team USA before even playing in an NBA pre-season game?
Anthony Davis: People say it a lot but it’s really a dream come true. I’m just trying to take it all in and learn from these guys who have won championships and had success in the league. It’s a great learning experience for me.
SN: So you’ve been wearing the new Nike Hyperdunks as a Team USA member. Does that mean you’re with Nike now?
AD: Yeah, actually signed a contract with them so i’m officially a Nike athlete.
SN: What plans do they have laid out for you? Maybe your own signature shoe?
AD: I’m just happy to be on the Nike team, you know. We talked about giving me my own shoe so that could happen down the line. We’ll have to see.
SN: So since you don’t have a sig shoe yet, what’s your favorite sneakers to wear?
AD: Definitely Foamposites, and I wear a lot of Air Jordan Retros.
I have no comment about Anthony Davis, it's not very shocking that he signs with Nike. I'm more excited to see his first sneaker itself rather than this news. But i would just like the point out that you guys need to spell check your article... "as far as future NBA superstars none loom greater on the horizon at the moment then Anthony Davis, " lol. #justsayin
@umdaman HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Oh my Gosh!! Wow! i never noticed that! I'm going to nickname him "Bert" from now on!
Man I dont no if it's just me or does this guys facial features have TRANNY written all over it. LOL!!!'
suggestions for his nike signature shoes, nike hyperbrow, browposite, zoom ADbrow, unibrow23, unibrowsite max
did anyone see this not coming?? he has been rocking jays in all his pre-draft photos and has been rocking the hyperdunk since he got to vegas..my question is what took so long and is he going to be under nike or JB!!!
@Jonathan Broder Kemba rocked jays at UCONN and was even drafted by MJ's own team, yet he somehow signed with Under Armour. You never know...
I swear this was the ugliest nba draft, there was another guy in the first round that was pretty ugly, forgot his name though
@TNAFAM Uglier than Bosh?
@TNAFAM lol, before I saw ur comment I was just saying that he is up there with Sam Cassell
mann there going to make the swoosh on the shoe connect with the other swoosh on the other side and call them the davisons.
@DreamChaser make them limited, let the beasts hype the hell outta them and they will sell out. Imagine the box and colorway "Nike U-Brow NRG Black/ Kingdom Grey/Orange Blaze" lmao
