Definitely seen him as a Nike guy, but it’s the jay z influence. They’re creating a nice lil roster - Ayton, Bagley, Porter Jr, Knox, RJ.
Also it's nice homage to Clyde who also is a brand ambassador. So I get it and like it.
Nike is popular but there's a type of weird hierarchy there.
Players won't get recognized until the lead dogs do.
My biggest example is of Steph curry who couldn't get an all star nod until going to a different brand.
I think Steph staying healthy had more to do with becoming an AS than which shoe company he was signed with.
