It's all a business. If ya'll weren't such slaves for Nike you'd understand that. It's chess, not checkers. This is the counter move to Nike giving all their players those bright #*+ shoes for the ASG to stand out from those Adidas uniforms.

I'm sorry. I wasnt thinking. I was too caught up in trying to sound smarter than everyone else. I was trying to be a shoe brand rebel and go against the grain by calling people slaves because the majority of people buy nikes.
