Adidas laces the future stars of the NBA up lovely with All Star gear for their upcoming McD’s All American game.
Since 1978, the McDonald’s All American Game has featured some of the best high school basketball players in America. The McDonald’s All American Game has showcased the talents of many of the NBA’s past and present greats; that list includes: Earvin “Magic” Johnson, Isiah Thomas, Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Kevin Durant, and many more.
Next week, this year’s top 24 players in the nation will square off in Chicago for the 38th annual McDonald’s All American Basketball Game and will be outfitted by Adidas. Adidas (designers of the official NBA Jerseys) will have these high school athletes donning white and black REV30 sleeved jerseys with red and yellow McDonald’s accents throughout.
The sneakers these high school athletes will be wearing will be those of two of Adidas ‘most popular basketball players (Derrick Rose & Damian Lillard). Players will be wearing the D. Lillard 1s and D. Rose 5s in purple suede with the McDonald’s logo on the tongue. The purple suede bears a similarity to one of McDonald’s well-known characters “Grimace”.
These sneakers are already available for sale on the Adidas website and can be found in select stores in Chicago this weekend.
Be sure to check out the 38th annual McDonalds All American Game Wednesday, April 1st at 8 PM CST on ESPN, and see the future stars of the NBA showcase their skills.
