Jalen Rose wore adidas during his days in the NBA, but have he and Nike Basketball finally come to an agreement? A signature model would be downright laughable at this point in time, so we’re not talking about an endorsement deal, but rather a consensus on who is currently the world’s best basketball player. Right now, NBA Finals MVP Dirk Nowitzki is featured front and center (top-left, actually) on the Nike Basketball EPIC Family minisite. Dallas’ Dirk is joined by the usual suspects like LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and others, though you might be surprised by the distribution of star power throughout the list. In any case, each star pictured also has links to his personal profile and Twitter account so you can connect with the world’s greatest basketball players.
