TSB Podcast: Episode 169 – College athletes don’t like Under Amour

In this episode of TSB, Caesar gives his reaction to Van Lathan addressing Kanye West on TMZ Live. We know, we know. It’s a ‘sneaker’ show. But which side of the fence are you on? Will Kanye’s recent comments impact your decision to purchase his music or sneakers in the future?

Mark King was to Adidas what Kendrick Lamar is to hip-hop. During his tenure as president of Adidas North America, he oversaw the brand’s comeback to relevancy. But now he’s leaving. Can Adidas maintain it’s momentum without him?

Under Armour is not having a great 2018. College athletes are just the latest demographic refusing to wear their shoes. This comes despite the fact that Under Armour is the official sponsor of the universities these athletes attend. So why are they ditching them? Word has it that Under Armour quality has now become as bad as their designs. Damn…

A brand from the 90s is looking to catch a wave and stage a comeback. Guess which one? We’ll give you a hint. It’s FILA. Lol.

And finally, Jordan Crawford is looking to be the first professional athlete to sign a deal with Big Baller Brand not related to Lavar Ball. Allegedly, his deal will allow him to–in the words of JumpmanBostic–“rock what he likes.” So there’s wiggle room. So this isn’t a relationship as it is more of a friend’s with benefits situation.
