San Antonio Spurs star point guard Tony Parker has announced his partnership with Chinese footwear brand Peak. While the trend of NBA players joining overseas brands isn’t particularly something to be shocked at, especially with Dwyane Wade opening doors for elite superstars to make the daring move, Parker has long since been a Nike Basketball athlete and served as a channel for Nike Basketball exposure in France, where Parker is originally from. Tony just recently made his allegiance be known by posing with a Peak Basketball t-shirt a pair of PEs of the Peak Team Lightning, and also attended pre-game practice wearing a white pair. Your thoughts on this latest bit of sneaker brand news?

I kno its jus fa da doe... cuz no would leave Nike unless da money was right.... but shouts out to my boy tony on da move. I see peak is started to sign sum big names
3 yrs @ 1.2 mil isn't that much as far as endorsement deals goes. But if Nike was serious about making their influence is France larger, they'd have given TP is own signature shoe, instead of a "team" Nike shoe with TP9 branding on the tongue
