Greek Freak got a truck full of shoes and a week full of sneaker deals pitches
At 22 years old, the big man from Greece had a sudden meteoric rise in the NBA and today sneaker brands are lining up to get him as brand ambassador. who can blame them?
Drafted 15th overall in the 2013 NBA draft behind Anthony Bennet, Victor Oladipo, CJ McCollum, he, right now could be considered the best player of that rookie class, with the second best being the 27th pick Rudy Gobert. The Bucks found gold in Giannis and after just four years in the NBA, he is now one of the most talked about players in the NBA.
From his humble first year where he averaged only 6 points per game to now averaging 22.9 points while shooting 52% from the field and adding 8 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 blocks per in the process. The 6'11 forward is on a stiff upward trend and teams and brands are on the lookout for him.
This week, Giannis received a truck full of shoes from Adidas but, it's not going to stop there. This week he is said to be meeting with other brands like Nike, Li-Ning, and others. They are set to give the Greek Freak a pitch to become their endorser, each offering the superstar a chance to have a signature shoe.
If he chooses to sign with any of the brands above, he would be wearing either the Adidas Crazy Explosive 2017, Nike Kobe A.D. or Li-Ning Yu Shuai 11 at least in the first few months of the season up until they develop his signature shoe which is most likely in the next season.
