Even in 2012, I sometimes still find it amazing that Jordan Brand is an actual brand. Because when I was coming up, they were just… Jordans
But I digress.
Dwyane Wade is one of the biggest names on Jordan Brand, but is that coming to an end? Reports say that he may eventually leave Jordan Brand for Li-Ning, which hasn’t benefited from a strong foothold yet. However, that would definitely change should they sign Wade. This tells me that Li-Ning is offering him a boat load of money if Wade is willing to consider leaving Jordan Brand for a brand that is relatively unheard of. Excellent move for Li-Ning if they can pull it off.
From Sole Collector on Twitter…
Hearing from several people that Dwyane Wade will likely leave Jordan Brand and sign with Li-Ning. Huge shift.
