Could Celtics starting point guard Rajon Rondo be following Kevin Garnett’s lead & signing with Anta? Rajon’s been signed with Nike for roughly the last four years, but a rumor that surfaced this weekend has him joining KG as an endorser for the Chinese sneaker brand. Garnett is currently in China promoting his fourth signature shoe with Anta, as well as celebrating signing a five-year extension with the company.
Kevin was named as the captain of Anta’s new “Team Priceless” campaign last week. On the official site, there are silhouettes of the next four members of the team that will be revealed in the coming weeks. The second player definitely appears to be Luis Scola. It’s quite obvious from the picture, and makes sense as he already endorses Anta. But the most intriguing silhouette is the fifth and final one. There is no doubt in my mind that it’s this picture of Rondo. Could #9 be leaving Nike and becoming Anta’s next NBA athlete? Nike has yet to get RR his own signature shoe and sneakerheads & basketball fans alike feel he certainly deserves one. This would be absolutely huge news if it is true. I have contacted my sources in China as well as folks inside Anta but have yet to confirm this information. As soon as I can confirm it, I’ll break the story right here at Red’s Army. Take a look for yourself via Anta’s “Team Priceless” website. Do you think Rajon is going to be the next face of Anta footwear?
