Joakim Noah Joins Derrick Rose-Signs With Adidas
After much speculation and chatter from sneaker insiders it has officially been announced that Chicago Bulls big man Joakim Noah has decided to join teammate Derrick Rose and sign with Adidas. It was reported a week ago by Kicks On Fire that the former Florida Gator decided to partner up with French footwear brand. Noah who is known for being a competitor on the court will now help make Adidas a competitor off the court as they now strengthen their roster with the addition of Noah.
If Noah gets his own signature shoe at any point during his career I would expect it to very much reflect him as a player. Adidas has had some hits and a many misses as far as designs go over the past few years so I think its crucial with a guy like Noah that they create something unique and interesting to captivate sneaker heads worldwide. Maybe Noah can break the “Big man can't sell” stereotype with Adidas. The all-star big man now joins the likes of Dwight Howard, John Wall, Damian Lillard, Jrue Holiday,Tim Duncan and Derrick Rose.
