Today, adidas welcomes top NBA prospects Jalen Green, Jalen Suggs, Evan Mobley and Sharife Cooper to the Three Stripes family, ahead of Thursday’s big night.
“The adidas Basketball family is thrilled to welcome Jalen Green, Jalen Suggs, Evan Mobley, and Sharife Cooper, from the 2021 draft class to the brand,” states Eric Wise, Global GM, adidas Basketball. “Each individual brings something unique to our team – from their talent and work ethic on the court, to a community-first mindset, values and openness to collaboration, we cannot wait to see where this week takes them. We are excited and look forward to our partnership as we continue to invest in the future of the game.”
“adidas has been a part of my life for a while now, and when the opportunity arose to join the brand leading up to my rookie year, I thought, why not join the family? They’ve always accepted me as family and shown love,” said Jalen Green. “On the court, I’m going to bring excitement and a winning mentality to the next level. If you lock in and watch me play, you’ll see my competitive edge. And back in Fresno, I want the kids who are watching me there to know that they can do it too.”
“I’m so excited to be with the brand. I grew up inspired by D Rose and Dame and want to follow in the steps of the young adidas family coming up now like Trae and Don. We will create culture together. And if you give me some time, I will pursue greatness like them,” explains Jalen Suggs.
“I’m really excited to join the Three Stripes Family. adidas has been by my side for most of my basketball journey so far. It feels right to be partnering with adidas as I start my pro career,” shares Evan Mobley.
“Growing up and seeing players sign major shoe deals has always been a dream of mine. And to get here and to have adidas believe in me, means the world. I’m extremely excited to hit the ground running with the adidas family and build something special,” states Sharife Cooper.
