@DwyaneWade SIGNS WITH LI-NING | CONFIRMED


Dwyane Wade Signs With Li Ning | Confirmed
Two years ago, Chinese sneaker brand Li-Ning went on a “contractual blitz”, signing lucrative endorsement deals with both NBA players Baron Davis, Evan Turner, along with organizations like the Argentina National Basketball Team. Then, as fast as it roared into the marketplace, Li-Ning faded into the background, that is till today. Already marginally confirmed by Chinese blogs and leaks, Dwyane Wadeofficially joined Li-Ning’s roster of players today. Currently in China for the announcement, Wade stated “In the end, the pros outweighed the cons.” The Miami Heat guard continued, “Jordan might have that cool factor, but I’m at a different point in my career. I want to be involved in building something.” But Wade knows the challenge ahead for Li-Ning, especially when it comes to the US market, since “people don’t like to change the brands they know.”
Both Wade and Li-Ning would not discuss the exact the details to the new deal. But it is known to be a multimillion agreement throughout the duration of Wade’s career in the NBA. It also included minority stake in Li-Ning, something only Michael Jordan himself has in Wade’s former sponsor, Jordan Brand.

50 Cent Bowling With Gun Play MMG Chain

 
      

It looks like 50 Cent is now in possession of Gunplay’s MMG chain. After the fight at the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards, a member of G-Unit was able to obtain the chain. Here is some footage of 50 Cent at Lucky Strike in DC wearing the piece while bowling. I wonder what Rick Ross’ response will be.
Update: It looks like 50 Cent took offense to French Montana’s comments in a recent interview with Complex. He took to his Twitter to respond. Check out what he had to say below.
