The Gilbert Arenas sneaker rumor mill takes another spin today, thanks to the Washington Wizard’s decision to wear Under Armour kicks in a game last night. Since Arenas broke ties with adidas last season, he’s been seen wearing mostly Nike and Jordan product in preseason play, though no official ties to any brand have been verified.
It wouldn’t come as much of a surprise if the Maryland-based brand has signed or plans to sign Arenas, a relatively local athlete with a checkered past and outspoken reputation. Consider that the flashy young guard Brandon Jennings is the current face of the brand’s basketball efforts. Ironically, the Wizards were playing Jennings’ Bucks when Arenas wore the sneakers.
Could Arenas’ decision to wear Under Armour have been nothing more than an act of respect for the young talent or is it a sign of things to come? Expect more news on Agent Zero’s endorsement debacle in the very near future.
