Kevin Garnett to Leave adidas for Anta

Kevin Garnett to Leave adidas for Anta

It looks like the Big Ticket will be the next NBA superstar to jump ship on an American-recognized sneaker company and sign with a Chinese footwear brand. Baron Davis (Li-Ning) and Jason Richardson (Peak) are just a few to have already done so.

Reportedly, Garnett will opt-out of his “lifetime endorsement deal” with the three stripes brand and move to Anta following this season. KG was expected to surpass his career’s length with his adidas endorsement and support the brand as a veteran, but it looks as though the brand will join Nike and And 1 as ex-endorsers. If the deal goes through and he opts out, Garnett will join Rocket Luis Scola on the fresh-to-America brand. Stay tuned for more information on this developing story.

    for real if i was in the NBA i would say screw an endorsement (you make millions anyway) and wear whatever the hell i see fit (heat every game). I think its a personal thing and he just doesn't want to wear the same shoes as dwight. He cries alot.

    1. deano says:

      lol KG is soft in the middle like a pop tart. Seen dude tryna bully Dwight, Dwight was like "I want you to hit me!!", KG walked off. Then later Dwight accidentally caught him with a bow and he was lying on the floor for 30 seconds lol.

      <FONT COLOR="rgb(0,64,232)">yeah but if 95% of the heat you rock is Jordans and Nikes…why not just sign to them and get paid even more…some of these cats get paid more by Nike than they do by their teams…especially the cats who are on the rookie payscale their first 4 years.</FONT>

  12. kareja says:

    KG should be called the "big crying baby" every game he is whining on some not so hard fouls trying to get "star calls" out of the referees, don't get me wrong he got mad hoops, but he's really a big crying baby. and pretty much every adidas basketball shoe are really ugly so whatever

    Are these new Chinese brands even good performers on the court? I can't take the word of an NBA player because Grant Hill and Jamal Mashburn wore Filas for years.

  20. AIR96st says:
