After years of being the lead man for Reebok, John Wall and the company have parted ways and he is now joining Derrick Rose and the Adidas family. As he gets ready to return to game action possibly this Saturday, several reporters noticed him rockin’ new kicks on the practice floor. Later, Reebok confirmed the news and released this statement:
“John is a tremendous player and person, and has been a great representative of the Reebok brand. We wish him all the best. He is in good hands with adidas. Basketball remains an important category for Reebok. We have a long and very successful heritage in the sport, which provides us with a unique point of view and place in the category. In the near future, we will announce new basketball assets, to join our current roster, who we feel best represent the direction our style-driven performance basketball business. We’re looking at athletes who are unique in their approach to style, their game and their life in general.”
It’s good to see that things are happening for the young star even while out of action, and may it be in Adidas or Reebok, let’s hope to see the point guard out there on the court soon.
