Bulls’ Joakim Noah, who battled plantar fasciitis much of last season, is leaving French shoe brand Le Coq Sportif and will sign with adidas. Noah will sport the “Crazyquick” model this season.
According to Aggrey Sam of CSN Chicago:
Noah will now join teammates Taj Gibson, Jimmy Butler, Marquis Teague, rookies Tony Snell and Erik Murphy, and of course, Rose, as an adidas endorser.
“I’m really, really excited. I think it’s a great opportunity. Just to be with a global brand like that means so much. I’ve known a lot of those guys since I was a kid, playing at ABCD camp. Playing with the face of the brand in Derrick, that’s so cool to me, just to be a part of that. I think we’re going to be a lot of great things for the kids, as well, being in Chicago. I think they’re very invested in doing good things for the youth here. Just to be a part of such a power brand means a lot,” explained Noah, who said he will wear the adidas “Crazyquick” model to start the season.
