With the departure of several NBA players to play overseas, players are looking to new sources of income including foreign endorsements. Li-Ning has snatched up Los Angeles Clippers’ starlet Baron Davis for their shoe line. The BD-Pre is Davis’ signature sneaker with Li-Ning and has already been spotted on the feet of the guard. However, Davis has been wearing a different colorway of the BD-PRE while this version is now available exclusively in China. Consisting of white, blue and gold, this BD-Pre definitely adds variation to the wide range of sneakers available for basketball. What do you think of Baron Davis joining BD-Pre? Leave a comment below and tell us what you think of this endorsement. Big ups to Dime Magazine for the article.

  1. first baron leaves us to play fo the clippers- one of the only teams that the warriors have beaten so far and now he puts his name behind an ugly excuse for a basketball shoe. how much more stupid can he get?

  2. With the the economic crisis we are in, this idiot who should of stayed with the warriors, goes out and decides to sign with an hideous sneaker from another country. How much doe these pieces of crap cost. Another thing, if you leave the NBA to play overseas then your an F*N sell out. People dream to play in the NBA when growing up. Like that loser from ATL who plays in Greece now…. I should punch you in the face!!

  3. 1-NOBODY DREAMS OF THE NBA AS THE ONLY PRO LIGUE,(THE GAMES ARE MOSTLY BORING, AND APPEAR TO BE FIXED, AND THE ATTENTION GOES TO A FEW, THE US DOLLAR IS SHIT TO!)

    2- NIKE IS NOT AMERICAN, IF YOU KNEW HOW MUCH OF NON AMERICAN MONEY IS INVESTED IN IT OR EVEN THE NBA ,PETAH YOU WOULD KILL YOUR SELF , BUT AGAIN YOU SIM TO BE A THIRD PERIOD PLAYER (BEER AND NUTS) ,SO I DDONT EXPECT YOU TO HAVE THE ANSWERS ,SINCE I WORK FOR nike!!!

    3the shoes has nothing to do with the team he plays for , and you know what ,this is a good shoe, made out of durable matirial, i see worst from nike!!

    4 oh yeah in 70" Nike was regarded as garbage and could not move farther , look at it now it own number 1,,3,4 and 5 over sports most selling companies………..

    5 so let the man make his choise and live with it

    cause in the end it's just a shoe

  4. GOLDENEYED ur a d!ck! and im sure you dont work for nike!! your garbage just like Barron Davis shoes! hope Nike fires your a$$ when the layoff come!! Cabron!!

  5. they are alrite, but the sad thing is that they look like they have better quality then jordan these days

  6. Im a nike head .. but i can appreciate the design on these.. they have some nice elements but the colorway sucks and the quality/stiching needs to be improved

  7. I think so far it the comments are pretty good since the real Sole colectors aknowlde the fact that they themselves are open to new ideas and an other important fact is New is alwyas good ,in terms of the sneaker game having many players bringing the work foward ,so that average joe can have a choice as well as the big collectors that own so many shoes that they have some they might not even wear ever"…

    look i cant stress it hard enaugh for some people to understand but it doesn't take much to down play a rooky but it sure will take time for the rooky to mature especialy whene ,we are talking about the biggest market/target demmographic in the world…

    wich is why it might not take long for you to see these rugged disigne ,turn into fine sneaks , just because , they saved up for it and ready to on the western market…..

    rember k1x's(from the trunc of a car) add in liberia…..?and1 mixtapes (from the parc court) or nike(from a waffle maker to the MACA'S of sports")

    hell you could do it , but hey can you?

    anyway its not the greatest shoe ever but as long as it's on pro courts someone is paying attention!

    see you later!

  8. those are raw

    i bet if they had a jordan sign on em all yall that said they were payless and garbage would say

    "coppin these"

  9. nice design a lot of chinese shoe companies such as Li-Ning ,Anta,Peak actually manufacture quality shoes some are even subcontracted by nike most of nikes coming out nowadays are made in china

  10. Listen Goldeneye, I am a sneaker head, I've been one since I got my first pumps 5th grade. I dont give a damn what you say or wat anybody says, my opinion is valid just like everybody everyone else's. get off you high horse! They are ugly, they are garbage and they belong at walmart. I will agree with you that yes that everyone company does not start out strong and has to make a name for themselves, but look at the starburys, they are done and the one channel they were retailed at is out of business. Signing with a company from a 3rd world country and playing in the NBA is a disgrace.I know a good portion of the money is invested overseas be cause we need to outsource for these types of products or jordans would cost $300 a pair. Good luck ling lang or whatever the hell the companys call, Baron davis, you made just a smart of a move as Shaq did when he decided not to re-sign with Reebok, the only people who wears shaq's sneakers is him. Goldeneye, I'm not some kid on here sceaming YO YO YO I GOT ALOTTA DOUGH, I know what I'm talking about! AND by the way…. YOUR Welcome!!

  11. I'm a big Nike and Jordan head. I feel like they have the best product bar none. I know they are made in China and other 3rd world countries, but I also know that Nike and Jordan have made improvements in the conditions were the shoes are manufactured.

    I'm not going to hate on these, but I wouldn't buy them! They might be made well, but they do nothing for me as far as the way they look.

    I guess these Chinese shoe companies are coming off some money. That's why Baron Davis and Jason Kidd left their shoe companies here. Baron can't sell shoes away and Jason Kidd hasn't had a shoe since the late 90's that really sold well.

    If your name isn't LeBron, Jordan, and now Kobe(I'm so glad he left Adidas) you aren't selling signature shoes anyway. Shaq wasn't moving units either, that's why he wears Starter now(which Nike happens to own) D-Wade should just were Nike(since Nike owns Converse anyway)

    Long story short nobody really wants these and if you did you couldn't go to your local Footlocker and get them anyway, but you can pick up a pair of Legacy Series Jordans like I did today.

    More power to B. Diddy, but you can keep these!

  12. i Think these dont look bad . yea they come from some 3rd world country crap but hey the mans gettin payed nd like some1 sed b4 if it had a jordan symbol ppl would b goin crazy for these

  13. Petah

    FIRST OFF PETAH , i dint mean to demean your statment ,2 lets not talk about the economie , because you seem to be concerned with what shelf holds the other shoes, if you only knew how many units are moving off

    wallmart wall*from the shaq atack* company you would be amazed how much of a good business it is! ,

    3 third wolrd country , please!!!!! that was ten years ago and realy by defination….the USA… IS turning into one , just because of out sourcing and turning amirican into just* consumers….

    (check mate)!!!!!

    to:13 Ways"

    in terms of sells ,its about the attention the player gets and how much PR is done period!(check out the defination of PR,you might end up signing your self to shoes deal)!hahah

    and as far as shaq wearing starters……he sold SHAQ-ATACK TO PAYLESS!!!!(Good business move ,since the company was at its pick….

    and wade wounld wear NIKE because , it wouldnt sale , being in the same class of marketing with LEBRON AND KOBE….you might have noticed …

    LB23 COMES UP WITH A SHOE AVERY SIX MONTHSES!,and a signiture shoe in stores right after the allstar(maybe this year at the allstar, since that was MJ23 release date ) the comes KB24 ARROUND March…. how the hell would fit W3 in the rotation ? maybe with a christmas release but still need to see!!!!

    and yes some body is wearing these , same way kids

    in the west wear nike …..same thing in chine and i gotta tell you these Are not the best shoe in design detail, but since the engenering/manufaturing is as good as JM's…

    but those who just wana play will get the …..

    (in fact if my shoes weren't free id be getting these cause *at the end of the day shit the game makes the kicks , not the other way arround*

    !!!!!!

    but hey thats just me
