adidas Basketball is proud to announce today their acquisition of Joakim Noah. The man was a bit of an oddball case in the NBA in terms of sneakers prior to this partnership, having been the sole player in the league sponsored by Le Coq Sportif. The switch strengthens adidas’ foothold in Chicago, bringing the number of current Bulls players rocking with adidas up to seven (The rest are Jimmy Butler, Taj Gibson, Marquis Teague, Tony Snell, Erik Murphy, and of course Derrick Rose). Let us know if you’re excited to see where the partnership takes Noah and stay tuned to see which sneakers he’ll be hitting the court in when the season starts up.
anyways a bit sad that nike and adidas use money to get players. the game needs more choices. if he joined li-ning or reebok, or much better give him a signature from converse--- noah honour bird shoe and magic, wudd be a ton better. bring back cons into the design of bball shoes. Imagine Taylor og Purcell retro with top modern soles and support stealthily made :-)
Hope he'll get a signature shoe with ADIDAS. He's one of the best center in NBA, he deserves it. A chance for him that he didn't sign with Nike/Jordan cause he would never get any signature shoe. Nike makes signature shoes only for American players... (Tony Parker could tell a lot on this topic...and now see the result, he's with Peak...ain't it a pity?)
It's not a joke fam, dude hustles his ass off, by far the only player who can contain Lebron James, shoots 50% from the field, 75 from the line and grabs 4 offensive rebounds a game! You can have the divo centers who care more about scoring. Give me Noah over any other center in basketball.
This game is dominated by guards and big men are extinct in a sense. A center has to score true enough but bc of the guard play these days, a center main objective is play amazing defense in the paint, run the floor well, and provide 2nd chance points for his guards and that's exactly what Noah does. Might I had he's the only center last season to have a triple double. And he's not the best center? I hope to God you're not gonna say D Howard.
