John Wall made the switch from Reebok to adidas recently. Check out his first ad, which also has appearances from Damian Lillard, Jrue Holiday, and rapper A$AP Rocky.

At least it looks better than the ZigTechs.

    Who needs shoes anyway. JW can beat 90% of NBA barefoot, but you’ll never see that ad. It’s in the heart not the feet. Go John, Go UK!

    This is commercial is awesome. I’ve seen 100 comments on a post before because a recruit farted at lunchtime. Where’s the love for this?

    I like that ad – Wall is awesome. that rapper needs to pay more attention to his dental hygiene though – all that yellow tartar is strong evidence he doesn’t brush often enough; he’s gonna have a lot of gum and teeth issues one day.

    Well, Adidas essentially revitalized a dying Reebok brand (I know this crap because I was the native basketball shoe guru for Zappos for a while), and when it became apparent that the only Reebok shoe that was going to sell AT ALL was the Wall & Wall Season 2, Adidas decided to scrap the idea of Reebok basketball completely and move their biggest asset to Adidas.

    It’ll put more moolah in John’s pocket, for sure. I did find it odd that they would switch him to Adidas right after they released a new version of his shoe, though.

    Is the crossover move just another term for carrying the ball?
