SHOES TO CHOOSE: SOLECOLLECTOR.com’s Nick DePaula noted the industry is "awaiting word" on what move Thunder Gs Russell Westbrook and James Harden will make. Westbrook is “said to be making his decision -- between Jordan Brand or adidas -- this week” (SOLECOLLECTOR.com, 10/1). In Oklahoma City, John Rohde noted Westbrook “wore the Nike Air Jordan1 model at Thunder media day on Monday.” Rohde: “No way would Westbrook wear Nike on the biggest photo op day of the season had he already signed a new deal with adidas." Still, Nike officials "have yet to confirm Westbrook as a client.” Westbrook “became a sneaker free agent this summer after spending his first four seasons as a prominent figure in Nike’s Hyperfuse line” (NEWSOK.com, 10/2).
