Hearing from several people that Dwyane Wade will likely leave Jordan Brand and sign with Li-Ning. Huge shift.

What do you guys think about this rumored move? Personally, I don't see it as a big deal and definitely not a "huge shift". Starbury had a bigger imprint in the United States than Li-Ning could ever dream of. They haven't been able to make waves in the States and won't with a guy that has been somewhat hard to market as the face of a brand since joining JB. This is a move for his pockets and his pockets alone as it is with most American athletes who go with Chinese brands during the decline of their career.
