Li-Ning Conquer - Evan Turner Player Exclusive

On August 23, Chinese sneaker brand Li-Ning officially entered into a long term endorsement deal with No. 2 pick Evan Turner, a move that Li-Ning’s Brand Initiative Director for Basketball, Brian Cupps, called “a game-changing moment” for the brand. “Adding a supreme young talent like Evan Turner,” said Cupps, “sends a message to the global basketball community that Li-Ning basketball is committed to being a player on the global stage.”

According to NiceKicks.com, the Sixers rookie will receive his own signature shoe during the 2010-11 season, but with that said, check out the Li-Ning Conquer which Turner recently debuted on his tour of China.

“It’s great to have the support of a company that’s as eager as I am to perform at the highest level possible,” said Turner. “I am excited to be part of a growing brand and to blaze a new path for future young ballplayers everywhere to follow.”

    I hope the money is really good, I know Nike isn’t handing out Lebron or Carmelo money anymore, but he wore them LeBrons in college, how can you switch to the shoes they used on the last shuttle mission…..look worse than the Boom Dizzles…..but that’s not saying alot (not to hijack prev posters opinion).

    P Jackson said Artest’s shoes looked like work boots too.
