    Money wise it’s great I’m sure, but I don’t trust Adidas especially when you talk about explosive guys like McLemore. But hat’s just a hater talking (me).

    whats the point of spending sooooo much money on Adidas nations, AAU, High School and College teams if you suck at retail and you can’t sign the best college players coming into the NBA. Adidas basketball is not winning
