Hoop fans will have a idea now what these two lottery picks will be wearing on their feet when they drop buckets this upcoming season.
The rich continues to get richer as Nike was able to reel in two of the top lottery picks in the 2015 NBA Draft. Nike has officially signed 1st overall pick Karl-Anthony Towns of the Minnesota Timberwolves and 3rd overall pick D’Angelo Russell of the Los Angeles Lakers. Some experts are saying this was a strategic move Nike perfectly executed as both of these rookies are marketable newcomers who brings a excellent blend of talent and swagger. With Anthony Towns joining the high flying core of Andrew Wiggins and Zach LaVine, the big man from New Jersey will be a entertaining force to watch as years go by. As far as for D’Angelo, this is a perfect situation that falls into the lap of the former Ohio State great. By him joining forces with another Nike athlete in Kobe Bryant at a storied franchise such as the Lakers, Russell has the potential to bring in a new school of fans whose into the art of crafty, entertaining shake and bake basketball in which experts are real high on with D’Angelo. Don’t be surprise you see hoopers in the AAU circuit rocking some new “D Loading“as Russell will be the chosen one to take reign supreme as the Lakers next superstar once Kobe leaves the game for good. Welcome to the Nike family, young bucks!!
