Adidas is trying to woo a young star away from Nike with the help of a carload of free product. Giannis Antetokounmpo, whose Nike deal expires at the end of September, posted about an impressive sneaker gift from Adidas on his Instagram this week, showing a van filled with sneakers, Yeezys among them.
According to Nick Metallinos on Twitter, Antetokounmpo is set to meet with Nike today, but may end up with Adidas.

Antetokounmpo is wearing Nike almost head-to-toe in the clips he posted on Instagram, souring Adidas' viral moment somewhat.
