Jeremy Lin Signs with adidas Basketball
adidas Basketball continues to fortify their roster, ensuring that that they’ve got a diverse stable of athletes across different markets willing to rep the Three Stripes. Their latest addition: Jeremy Lin. League sources are reporting that the Houston Rockets player has inked a deal with adidas in the wake of his Nike contract. How the partnership will play out is uncertain, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see adidas making the most of their newly minted Houston Rockets duo of Lin and Dwight Howard. In fact the Rockets squad in general has arguably the best core of young marketable stars between Harden with Nike and Lin’s international influence with adidas. Tell us down in the comments if you think Jeremy Lin is a solid acquisition for adidas and stay tuned to Sneaker News for the official info.
Goodbye shreded cabbage hello sauerkraut! Nike was like your "gimmic isnt gimmicky enough, we need an animal, a killer." Lin starts singing church music and they cover their ears and walk out.
Ehhh... I thought something was up with him rocking those 2012 hyperdunk lows, but I didnt see this coming. With adidas getting the BOOST tech in the basketball shoes, this may not be such a bad move. I can only assume they cut a fatter check than Nike was willing to shell out.
