By now, the news of Dwyane Wade’s move to Jordan Brand is old news. Having seen him train in a number of JB products as well as the Converse signature that never was, the off-season hoopla is over and the season has begun.
Dwyane sat down with Sarah Talalay of the Sun Sentinel to talk about the reasons behind his move to JB and some things to look forward to in the near future. Topics included his motivation for the change, to which Wade responded, “Converse is under the Nike umbrella, so it was a decision from Nike, not only to put me into the Jordan Brand, where my individual things could be seen more, but also to help the brand as it continues to grow. So it was a corporate decision, and I just reaped the benefits from it. I had a great team at Converse, but I think it was time to move on from both sides, so it was great.”
