Pulling the Plug


As John Wall Continues to Rehab Injuries, Adidas Ready to Cut Ties

Things haven’t been going particularly well for John Wall of late.

He first hurt his hip which forced him to undergo season-ending surgery last year. Complicating the situation, Wall injured his left Achilles while slipping at home last February and as it appears, the All-Star point guard is expected to sit out the remainder of the season rehabbing all of his injuries.

While the Washington Wizards appear more than willing to give Wall all the time he needs to recover, Wall’s shoe sponsor, Adidas is ready to pull the plug. According to ESPN, the shoe giant and the former Kentucky Wildcat are working towards a buyout, which would end his five-year shoe and apparel endorsement deal less than two years into the agreement.

The deal is worth approximately $25-million.

After signing a massive four-year, $170-million extension with the Wizards back in 2017, Wall has only played in 74 games over the past two seasons. The mega-deal now appears as one of the league’s worst contracts and Adidas has no plans of sticking by the 29-year old star.

Wall began his NBA career as a Reebok athlete before signing on with Adidas. It now seems like Wall will be rocking different kicks whenever his return to the court comes.
