Sorry Nike — Adidas may have swooped in and stole your NBA star.
According to gossip reports, NBA baller James Harden is gearing up to sign a huge $200 million sneaker deal with Adidas for 13 years. And the juice is that Harden is looking more into the deal due to his new romantic relationship with Khloe Kardashian.
TMZ reports that although Nike is completely down to sign with the NBA player, he’s leaning towards signing with a company that’s more in the family: Adidas.
“Sources connected to Nike tell us the company has decided it won’t try to top the $200 million deal Adidas offered Harden last week. … Nike had concerns about sinking that much dough into just ONE player, when it has several other superstars to sign.”
As you know, Khloe’s brother-in-law Kanye West is an Adidas collaborator with the Yeezy’s, & Harden’s Houston Rockets teammate Dwight Howard is also signed.
Khloe’s red jacket she was rocking at his game this weekend was also made by Adidas. So there you have it — that’s a big red notice right there.
