Tyrese Haliburton Signs New Deal With Nike
Sac Town's Rookie PG is having a great rookie year, one that has been overlooked by many due to the performances of others in the league this year; your Lamelo Ball's, Anthony Edwards and also Immanuel Quickley. Irrespective of that, Tyrese Haliburton has been balling out and it's earned him a deal with Nike, a powerhouse in the world of basketball to say the least.
Many NBA players have their share of custom made kicks, Haliburton being one of them. He hasn't be shy at all about showcasing the range of shoes that he has from the Nike range, including the Kobe 6 Grinches and The Kobe AD's just to name a couple.
However, Nike don't just pick out players with the best shoe game. You have to really be something special to be a part of the brand that has been home to Kobe Bryant, and is still currently home to Lebron James and Kevin Durant, the only three basketball players in the world to have their own signature line with Nike.
Tyrese is averaging 12.8 PTS along with 5.2 ASTS and 3.0 REBS in his rookie campaign and has had some stand out performance which has definitely put anyone who's watching and really knows basketball on notice that he's no scrub.
"I ain't that nice yet, I ain't that nice yet," Haliburton said laughingly in his a post-game interview yesterday night after a victory against the Dallas Mavericks in response to a whether he's got his own signature shoe with Nike yet. "Maybe one day, maybe one day."
"I'm just happy to be partnered with Nike. I've been wearing Nikes my whole life. So it's really cool for me. Kind of like a dream come true, i'm excited about it. Like I said, it's just really cool. I've been wearing them my whole life, so kind of cool they have faith in me and like me enough to be a part of the brand."
Maybe one day, we will get a TH Nike shoe, especially if he continues to play as well as he has thus far. It's only year one for the rookie and he's already show the massive amount of potential he has. We can't wait to see how he evolves as a player in the years to come.
