“Well, that escalated quickly.” – Ron Burgundy

Earlier today, it was reported by Sneaker News that John Wall, the original face of Reebok Zig Basketball shoes, was seen wearing the adidas Top Ten 2000 during a pre-game practice. Wall himself confirmed that this was no accident, as he just tweeted out his official newfound allegiance with adidas Basketball. Joining a star-studded roster of signature athletes like Derrick Rose and Dwight Howard as well as some up-and-coming guards like Ricky Rubio and Iman Shumpert, the addition of Wall, who is set to make his 2012-2013 NBA Season debut son, should definitely be a “plus” for adidas. Your thoughts on the unofficial NBA Dougie moving to the three stripes? Let us know if you think Wall’s move to adidas forces any shift of power and we’ll keep you updated on the adidas x John Wall front.

Official adidas Press Release

PORTLAND, Ore. (January 9, 2013) – adidas today announced a long-term partnership with basketball superstar John Wall of the Washington Wizards.
“I’ve enjoyed my time with Reebok and I’m grateful for everything we accomplished the last few years,” said Wall. “Now, I’m excited to return to the court soon and begin my new partnership with adidas. They’ve changed the game with new technology and style and I can’t wait to be a part of it.”
The No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, Wall has career averages of 16.3 points, 8.2 assists, 4.6 rebounds and 1.6 steals. In his rookie campaign, Wall became the third youngest player ever to record a triple-double and earned 2011 Rookie Game MVP honors at the NBA All-Star Weekend Rookie Challenge. At the University of Kentucky, Wall’s dynamic play as a freshman earned him SEC Player of the Year honors and helped lead the Wildcats to the NCAA Tournament Elite Eight.
“John Wall is a great talent and his quickness, superior athleticism and personality make him one of the most exciting young players in the game,” said Lawrence Norman, adidas vice president of global basketball. “We’re excited to partner with John to continue to develop new innovative products and grow our brand and business.”
Wall is the latest addition to the adidas basketball roster which includes 2010 NBA MVP Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls, three-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year Dwight Howard of the Los Angeles Lakers and two-time NBA MVP and four-time NBA Champion Tim Duncan of the San Antonio Spurs. He joins several recent adidas partners to earn NBA All-Rookie team honors including Ricky Rubio of the Minnesota Timberwolves, Kenneth Faried of the Denver Nuggets, Iman Shumpert of the New York Knicks, Brandon Knight of the Detroit Pistons and MarShon Brooks of the New Jersey Nets.
Other adidas athletes include WNBA star Candace Parker, FIFA World Player of the Year Lionel Messi of FC Barcelona and 2011 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year Von Miller of the Denver Broncos.
Wall will be featured in a variety of upcoming adidas marketing initiatives and will play a role in the development of basketball footwear and apparel.

What active athletes do Reebok sponsor now? Only one that comes to mind is Peyton Manning


Wall, Howard, Rose, Rubio and Shumpert.. arent they all in the injured list?? hmmm...


If he not getting a signature shoe then it wasn't worth it. Should of went Nike or Under Armor 


Reebok is a subsidiary of Adidas so I don't see any big story line here


Big Ups!... anything but JBrand lol


Finally got him into a better sneaker but he should be with Nike.... Glad Jordan Brand didn't grab him up! Then again I can see him over Westbrook!


Thank God you're out of those ugly azz Zigs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
