SportsQQ.com says the rumors of Steve Nash leaving Nike for Chinese brand "LuYou" have now been confirmed. During a press conference in Beijing this morning the company's chairman announced the new partnership.
It will include of course a signature shoe, which a fan will "design" the logo for as part of an online contest that starts on 1/15, and a clothing line. Nash was quoted as calling LuYou a "steadily-growing" company.
Nash now joins amongst others Baron Davis, Luis Scola and of course the Celtics own Kevin Garnett as members of the NBA who have signed contracts with lesser-known, overseas sneaker companies.
Garnett signed with Chinese-based Anta over the summer of 2010. So what do you folks think? Are Nike and Adidas just not making good quality footwear anymore? Or is it all about the dough….?
