Markelle Fultz is nearly certainly going to be the first overall pick at this Thursday's NBA Draft, with the Sixers having traded up with Boston for the pick in a blockbuster deal over the weekend. That wasn't his only footwear endorsement option though: in a piece at the Washington Post, the former Husky mentioned an interest in Big Baller Brand. While Lonzo is already (possibly) cashing in on those $500 sneakers, Fultz inked a multiyear deal with Nike late last week.
Fultz: I don't know, honestly.
Spain court calls Ronaldo to testify in $16mn tax fraud case
Madrid are unlikely to commit to selling the Spain worldwide while there remains a possibility that Ronaldo could leave. We have complete faith that Cristiano has always acted out of good faith because we know what he is like.
Still, it's amusing to consider the potential, as it was amusing to see Fultz ponder then reject the idea out of a desire to not want to make an opponent money.
And Williams piggy-backed Fultz's comments by saying "I don't think they've (Big Baller Brand) got money to sign anybody". He has no relation to the Ball family and therefore wouldn't be willing to make such a big risk on his first shoe contract, especially when Nike's trying to give you that guaranteed $$$. Why would a prospect hitch their respective marketing wagon to an unproven brand run by a guy who talks and acts like LaVar Ball?
