Evan Turner Says Dwyane Wade Is Joining Li-Ning

Rumors have been swirling this summer about Dwyane Wade making a sneaker move, and while nothing is official yet, an NBA peer may have broken the news today. Sixers guard Evan Turner took to Twitter to “welcome” DWade to Li-Ning. We’ll deliver the details when we have them—and this has yet to be confirmed by Wade or the company—but for now, consider Turner’s tweet a hint at a major move from the Miami Heat star and former Jordan Brand athlete.

    Turner’s shoe, the Turningpoint plays real well. Great ankle support and traction. A tad heavy if you’re into the whole crazylight thing but overall good shoe to play in.

  • yorko

    I own a pair of the BD Defends, best shoes i’ve ever played with, great ankle support and great traction, lightweight and really well built. Better than most Adidas

    really? you got me curious about playin in em now

  • biggieman

    Well at least now we won’t be subjected to anymore horrible D-Wade/Jordan Brand commercials, ie; where he’s riding crotch rocket as a superhero. That shit was awful! I can’t stand D.Wade so I think it’s fitting that he sold out to China and has to wear these ugly ass kicks!

  • The Seed

    The name of his new shoes are call shadow walkers.

  • Caboose

    It must be for performance because Li Ning shoes are ugly as sin.

  • Slick Ric

    D-wade jordan brand shoes were so hideous I’m thinking this may be an upgrade. Jordan Brand haven’t had a good shoe since the first couple melo’s…

  • averysmith.pro

    you guys have to understand business. Jordan Brand shoes are china shows homey. They’re all made in China. DWade is cutting out the middle man. He is probably more popular there than here. He’s getting Chi-rab Money. Anyway. Nike/JB are NOT American companies. It is a multi-national organization that has no allegiance to any nation, let alone us black americans who keep buying those hideous shoes.

    DWade is a business, man!

  • BuenoWayno1

    Hazzah! another pair of ugly kicks. D wade should of stayed with converse.

  • Robb

    Crap brand

  • fruizm
