Team USA just won the FIBA World Championship in basketball with two rookie guards, Tyreke Evans and Stephen Curry, on the team. Ever wonder why fellow rookie star Brandon Jennings of the Milwaukee Bucks wasn’t selected to the squad? According to Jennings, it must be the shoes.
Jennings told Yahoo! Sports he wasn’t chosen for Team USA simply because he doesn’t endorse Nikes. Jennings has a shoe contract with Under Armour. By the way, both Evans and Curry have endorsement deals with Nike.
There have been other Nike shoe conspiracy theories in the past.
