Nick Young Speaks Out on Nike February 28 2016, 0 Comments
Nick Young has been quiet this season; he's been riding the pine with the second worst team in the league. Although his numbers took a hit, he still managed to grab a new sneaker deal.
After his deal expired and before signing with his current brand, he entered "sneaker free agency." During that time, Swaggy P chose to rock anything and everything. From Filas to Jordans, Young put the entire collection on display. Young ended up signing with the Three Stripes and quickly displayed his new kicks.
He even took the liberty to wear the adidas Yeezy 750 Boosts in game. Well, he did get name dropped by Kanye in Facts ("James Harden, Swaggy P runnin' up the budget.")
With his history of rocking Air Jordans and Nikes, many wondered why Young was so eager to leave. In an interview with Sole Collector, Young spilled the beans on Nike's operations:
“Nike is really only three people. Kobe, Durant, and LeBron. I like the concept of how adidas adds everybody in their shoe commercial. The way adidas is going and the waves they’ve got, I was getting on board.”
Well, you truly can't blame Nike for focusing on their big dogs. Kobe, Bron, and KD have been the moneymakers for the Swoosh with their signature lines.
