This new sneaker is part of a series that recognizes the pregame rituals and motivational phrases of several NBA stars, including the Mavericks’ Luka Dončić and the Kings’ De’Aaron Fox. Ben Simmon’s shoe shows the words passion, pride and motivation.
Although Simmons is a Nike athlete he almost landed with Adidas. After his draft his representatives which include Rich Paul and Mark Termini of Klutch Sports Group, met with Adidas in Los Angeles, and four days later, they met with Nike in Portland. Obviously Nike won the Simmons team over. Perhaps the five-year $20 million guaranteed offer didn’t hurt.
