You're right they are Converse.



But I have 3 possibilities as to why they didn't cover them.

1) Since he was short he was in the middle of the pack to it would be hard to cover them

2) I think they only wanted to cover Adidas shoes seeing as it's a little close to Nike, and maybe the two companies are rivals or something i don't know.

3) No one would be able to tell they aren't Nike, maybe?

Doesn't Nike own Converse? I think that's why.

Well Jawai is highly regarded, he has only played 1 season over here and has done reasonably well as the go to guy for his Cairns Taipans. We lack quality Big Uys here though for him to compete against, the one thing about him is he is quite mobile for his size and is down to eearth sort of guy. He would playing on our national team but will not be included for the Olypics team as he is pursuing his NBA Dream, but is definately an Auto Choice if available. Why is he not on the Summer League Roster?? he is over there isn't he??

I was searching his name on ESPN and it shows him on the Pacers. Anything on that? Was that his previous team or something? I'm not sure.

thanks for the recap Aussie.

He's still not "officially" a member of the Raptors as the trade that sends him to Toronto won't be finalized until later today. By tomorrow i'm sure he will be showing up as a member of the team. And my guess is that he'll suit up on the summer league team for sure.

BTW, what is a Taipan? I think there was a movie called Taipan from the 80's about colonization in asia.

They should change the name to the Cairns Chinese Businessmen to remove the confusion.

Actually I have to give credit to whoever thought of doing that. I would've never known what he was doing. Good find there Ex2k


All i can say is just imagine if it wasn't D12 who didn't wear Nike. What if it was one of the middle guys like Kobe or Carmelo. What could've they possibly done to cover-up the guy if he's in the middle of the line without making it entirely obvious?

Oh well, at least they left his jersey alone. You can still see the logo there.

I hope USA chokes this year. Something about the team bugs me. Maybe because of some of the guys on the team?
