    When did kg left addidas and why?

  • Whitty881

    @Reggie he left at the end of the ’10 season. For i’m assuming financial reasons. Anta, Li-Ning, and Peak pay big bucks for NBA studs.

  • Nolan

    Those are Freegums not scarfaces

  • Russell

    whats even more sad was timmy duncan leaving nike for adidas. nike made some of the dopest air maxes ever for timmy. and i mean dope.

  • Reggie06

    No wonder role players like battier etc get their signature shoes

  • Reggie06

    I still remember brotherhood dammn good times

    @Russel those Foams he had were one of the sickest shoes ever

    shoutout to the 200 dollar Hyperdunk “Elite”. Upper seems to be made out of paper the way they tore on Blake’s foot. Wonderful.

    Surprised you missed one of the cooler kicks moments so far, granted it was in Gm 1 of the 2nd round between C’s and 76ers: Ray Allen switching from generic brand jordans’ to an AJ XI (ALL WHITE, never seen those). Seems those bone spurs in his ankle need that soft XI feeling

    KG is sponsored by ANTA since August 2010

    @darksabre , those j’s are the allstar makeup. Apart from Melos I don’t rate any of them. For a superstar kd has ha some of the worst kicks in the history of mankind

    I don’t get why KD can’t get some better shoes. They clearly have worse tech than Lebron and Kobe considering the lower price. Trying them on they don’t fit as well either (but that could just be the shape of my foot). Come on Nike. You pay him big bucks to make a crappy shoe for him. What gives?

    kd’s shoes are specified for the foot shape of kd himself… if u look under the lace strap of the KD2 it will tell u that and they continued that tech with the kd3′s. i personally still dont like the way the 3′s fit but thats why i ball in the melo M8′s… different players need different shoes for their game set
