Ok… so he’s not playing overseas… but he IS hawking Chinese shoes. The Sporting News brings us word that Jason Kidd has dumped Nike to wear Peak shoes. If you want to see more photos… including close ups of his shoes and a lot of things you can’t read… go here.
So Kidd joins Shane Battier on the Peak roster. Hmmm… a role player and washed up star. Way to build that roster. Meanwhile… Yao Ming is wearing Reebok. The hottest American star in China, Kobe Bryant, (and most of the league) is decked out in Nike. I’ve got KG and Dwight Howard selling me Addidas… Dwyane Wade hawking Converse (a Nike brand).
Do really think a role player and washed-up spousal abuser are going to make your big splash? Only if you buy me off with a LOT of free stuff.
