Dwyane Wade to Li-Ning? - Page 3

post #61 of 8114

The main reason for him to join some chinese brand is not the money for the contract but the publicity in China! Nike is sending all their top athletes there (every summer...) and the chinese fanboys are ripping them apart! If dwade, lebron, kobe...can establish some (longlasting) fame in Asia, they could stop playin ball in the US and just live of their fame in china...

The best thing about Li Ning was B Diddy's beard gang caricature

JB has proved that its best days are faaaaaar behind it. the reason why wade shoes dont sell isnt because he sucks as a spokesman, but because his shoes are ugly. Melos/CP3 prob arent doing much better.

there are NTers that can design better shoes than the designers at JB

if jordan himself wore fly wades, melos or CP3s in his prime...Jordan brand wouldnt exist.

its the brilliant design of the shoes plus the man that made the line, not the endorser himself.

I really liked the fly wade line. The first one fit my foot really well and served as my backup shoe for most of last season. I don't think it'll be that much of a difference for Wade's shoes, Li-Ning makes great basketball shoes that are useless as casual sneakers, and Wade with JD had great basketball shoes that are useless as casual sneakers.

if i was dwade i wouldve signed to jordan brand just to milk them for all the free retros and PEs i could, once that slowed down i would bounce to another company for more money so i could spend that extra money on more retros and PEs

What makes you think he won't have access to retro product? On court PEs would be history, but I'm sure he'd be rocking retro and possibly PE product off court. He has all the necessary connects and it's free marketing on JB's behalf.

This is the truth here. If he's smart, he's definitely looking out for his post-NBA career with this move.

Righteously, his shoes suck. Even though I can't imagine his shoes being better @ li ning, its a fresh start from his jb bs

Saw a few tweets that said this went down and he signed with li-Ning today. Could be false tho
post #74 of 8114
JB should've had him wear the Air Jordan model as planned and maybe used the Fly Wade's as a team shoe of sorts under his name. I heard the Fly Wade 1 & Fly 23 were great shoes performance. The Fly Wade 2s look OK but I'm not sure I'd bite on those because Lunarlon doesn't have a long lifespan.

DWade wanted his own Sig shoe and not the annual AJ shoe. Wish he just went to regular Nike basketball. I'm sure they coulda made him his own Sig shoe and much better than the JB basura.

Wade leaves Nike for Li-Ning

Dwyane Wade | Heat
RECOMMEND1COMMENTS0EMAIL

Dwyane Wade has been a rep for Nike's Jordan Brand for three years and that led to the release of two Fly Wade shoes.

SneakerWatch.com reports Wade is leaving Nike and will sign a multi-million dollar contract with Chinese brand Li-Ning. According to the website, an official announcement could come within a few days.

It is not known when the first Wade signature shoe from Li-Ning will be released.

-- Nick Borges

Got it from ESPN Insider. Who knows.....

The fly wade 2s were amazing on the court. It was a shame that I had to take them in for a voucher due to ripping though. But they felt amazing.

This article says September 1, 2012:

The biggest smoking gun - and what probably lead to the rumors of Wade leaving when his contract was up on Sept. 1 - was the cancellation of the Jordan Fly Wade 3, Wade's own signature shoe that he had to carry and endorse along with the flagship Air Jordan.

Sad, but true. But D-Wade doesn't move kicks. Who has a pair of "Fly Wades"?

...It's ok, I'll wait...

Seems to me that Li-Ning goes after aging NBA guards...waddup B-Davis!!

He should've done that, because the shoes would be easier to cop since you know they'd be in stores. Li-Ning has some shoes I'd consider but they sell out everytime I look for my size.

Li-Ning has some good basketball shoes (performance wise) + He will get the fame and the money will come.

Good move for him if he goes.
