Could shoe contract keep Dwight Howard away from playing with Chicago?

Dwight Howard is a free agent after this season, but he could be traded by season’s end. Teams most talked about trading to get Howard are the Los Angeles Lakers and New Jersey Nets. One team you don’t hear talked about in Howard’s services is the Chicago Bulls.

Yes, there might be a crazy reason why Howard will never be a Chicago Bull. See ADIDAS two major sponsors in the NBA are Howard and Bull’s star Derrick Rose. According to Yahoo Sports these two super stars can’t play on the same team.

And as one high-ranking sneaker executive says, “Adidas simply cannot have its two signature players on the same team in the same market. … Derrick is the face of that market, owns that market, and Adidas can’t possibly have maximum bang for its buck with Dwight there.

“It serves Adidas no purpose. They need them as rivals in competing markets.”

This is crazy but in the end money talks. Lots of fans don’t realize or understand what is going on behind the scenes. There is a lot more to the NBA than basketball that is just how businesses operate. At the end of the day it is all about the money.

Sadly some players think about money more than winning championships.
