Endorsing a sneaker brand is a very lucrative deal for any NBA superstar. Miami Heat stud Dwyane Wade, being just that, has made the rounds throughout his career in that aspect. He initially endorsed Converse, and most recently Jordan Brand. Well, his contract with Jordan is up this summer, and there are rumors that he may jump ship and sign with Chinese powerhouse Li-Ning.
“We’re still negotiating, until you get to the point where you decide which way to go. There’s many shoe companies that obviously know that I’m up this summer. But I still have the respect for and the obligation and the willingness to sit down and to the company I’m with.”
Li-Ning must be offering up a nice chunk of change to outdo Jordan Brand, and if Wade is to sign with them, it will bring about a whole new interest in their sneakers.

Fresh off of an NBA Championship, Dwyane Wade is looking to come back from a knee injury to defend his title. However, one of his off the court moves is a bit of an eyebrow raiser.
He has been a rep for Nike shoes for three years, and has even had the Fly Wade shoes (below) named after him.
Now, according to ESPN Insider, Dwyane Wade will be leaving Nike....
Written by Kevin Early They won it all last year. Lebron James changed the connotation of his name and silenced his critics (at least a little). Now they look to repeat.

Rumor is D. Wade is parting ways with the Jordan Brand. He’ll be signing on with the Chinese brand, Li-Ning in a multimillion dollar deal. An official announcement is expected in the coming days.
Let us take a trip down memory lane. Summer of 2010 LeBron summoned all interested NBA executives and front office personal to come to his central free agency meeting offices in Ohio. The rumor was, LeBron was interested in Miami and teaming up with his buddy’s Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade. Was it possible LeBron James would snub New York and a chance to be bigger than he already...

The Miami Heat have signed forward Jarvis Varnado and free agent center Mickell Gladness.
Reports out of Miami say that Chris Bosh is adding 6lbs. of lean muscle to his frame in attempts to “bulk” up for the upcoming season. A move that indicates Bosh may be Miami’s starting Center, come October.
Only LeBron James would star in a commercial with five different versions of himself, all played by him! I know the LBJ fanatics (mostly 9 year old boys) will say how wonderful this commercial is. Hey! Eddie Murphy did similar things… Eddie Murphy? Come on Nike! One more thing… tell me why LeBron James must [...]

From "Probasketballtalk" Sept , 3, 2012. "No matter what moves Mr. Romney made, the president said, he and his team were going to cut him off and block him at every turn. “We’re the Miami Heat, and he’s Jeremy Lin,” Mr. Obama said, according to the aide." We all know what Obama is saying here. Lin is and will always be a fluke. ROFLMAO
