The Wait Is Over!
Today marks the beginning of the new partnership between adidas and NBA Superstar James Harden. In order to make sure that Harden isn’t caught slipping wearing Nikes or Jordans anymore, the adidas team made a special delivery at Harden’s house today by bringing him literally a truckload of some of the hottest adidas sneakers and gear. What more could you ask for on your first day on the job right?
Harden expressed his thoughts on his new partnership with the Three Stripes.
“Doing what’s expected isn’t enough for me. I’ve taken chances to put myself in a position to be successful and I’m hungry for more. I want to be true to who I am, even if that means taking risks or doing things different from the status quo or what other people expect,” Harden said. “Wanting to be the best – that comes with hard work, focus and making sure I’m always growing my game. It’s a credit to my time in Houston and I’m just trying to enjoy the moment, but I still have to remember how I got here and all the hard work it took.”
“After meeting with adidas I knew we could create something people won’t see coming. They want to celebrate me for who I am and what I stand for. They want to help me be closer to my fans, tell my story and make incredible product together. This is my chance to do something that can’t be done anywhere else. I think of myself as a creator on the court and I’ve built a game different than any other player in the league. I see an opportunity to become one of the best players in the world – adidas is the partner who will help me get there. I can’t wait to get started.”
This upcoming season we can expect Harden to lace up the adidas Crazylight Boost 2015 in a variety of Houston Rockets colorways. That’s until he gets his own signature sneaker next season of course.
