Wall’s Reebok Family

John Wall signed a 5 year, $25 million endorsement deal with Reebok yesterday in a somewhat shocking move, as Wall seemed to be a lock for a Nike contract.  Considering Nike’s ties to UK and the friendship between Wall and Lebron, Reebok certainly pulled off the upset over its market dominating competitor. Reebok has established itself in the NFL over the past few years but the brand has practically been non-existant in the NBA.  The glory days of Shaquille O’Neal, Shawn Kemp, and Allen Iverson are long gone but it appears Reebok is ready to once again have an NBA face among its other athletes.  What other athletes you ask?  Let’s take a look.

Here are some of the other athletes in Wall’s Reebok family.
