Nike Signs Anthony Davis

According to reports from various news outlets, Nike has signed New Orleans Hornets rookie Anthony Davis to a multi-year endorsement deal. As of now, the exact terms of the agreement are undisclosed.

Davis suited up in the Swoosh at Chicago’s Perspectives Charter, and again during his championship campaign at the University of Kentucky, before taking the floor in the Lunar Hyperdunk for Team USA this summer. He was the top pick in June’s NBA Draft, coming off a college season in which he was named National Player of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year, Freshman of the Year and the NCAA Tournament’s Most Outstanding Player.

Don’t expect to see signature footwear anytime soon, but it’s safe to assume Nike and Davis will work together on some merchandise that pokes fun at his famous unibrow. Davis and his people reportedly applied to trademark the terms “Fear the Brow” and “Raise the Brow” back in June.

Nike also signed second overall pick Michael Kidd-Gilchrist of the Charlotte Bobcats back in May.

After missing majority of last season with an injury, New Orleans Hornets point guard Chris Paul is back to his old tricks, leading the team back into playoff contention. Aside from the highlight reel dishing, Chris Paul is quietly putting together a lengthy signature shoe line as a member of the Jordan Brand. His latest, the CP3.IV, may be the most aesthetically pleasing CP3 shoe to date. Here’s a detailed look at the launch colorway that Paul wore to debut the shoe.

Black leather and mesh make up the upper on this pair, including geometric ventilation on the side panels. Hits of white and silver accent the shoe on the tongue and fabric lace loops, as well as the pull-tab and Jumpman branding on the heel. Capping off the look below is a translucent rubber outsole. You can pick up CP3’s latest here at Eastbay today.
