As an adidas athlete, you guys are killing it on and off the court. What does it mean to be part of the adidas family?

Its a great thing for our brand, you know, on the court you’ve got James (HARDEN) doing his thing and he’s basically in an MVP race with Russel (WESTBROOK). Its amazing to see how that helps take our brand to the next level.

Dame (LILLARD) is still doing his thing and Derek (ROSE) went to New York which is a bigger market for him to showcase his skills again. I’m in a smaller market but were still doing ok, especially off the court, I’m doing my fashion thing with adidas, we’ve got all these nice shoes out like NMDs, Ultra Boosts and especially the top shoe right now which is the Yeezys so thats great.
