Dwyane Wade is signing with Chinese sportswear provider Li-Ning, and the Miami Heat guard tells The Associated Press that this will be the final sneaker deal of his playing career. The two-time NBA champion gets his own brand - called Wade - and will play a large role in design elements and selection of future brand endorsers. The deal is to be announced Wednesday in Beijing, where the Heat are part of this week's NBA China Games tour. Wade spent his first six seasons in Converse apparel, then the last three wearing Jordan Brand. His debut in Li-Ning is expected Thursday, when the Heat play a preseason game in Beijing against the Los Angeles Clippers. Wade also hopes to play Sunday when the Heat and Clippers meet again in Shanghai.

  • I don't know who decides what designs to put his name on but all of DWades shoes have been hideous, so him going to China won't change a thing, I've seen the pics already and Uh yeah he can keep those!So long as he gets paid DWade and other athletes could careless about style or how much in the hole it puts a parent to try and afford his shoes, I wish one day everyone would wake up and stop supporting these guys, cause the majority could careless about us, but when the bottom drops out ie.. T.O they expect our sympathy and come crying back to the Community, crazy thing is we always take them back.
