âAll the things weâve done in the past have been releveant to the culture, and theyâve all been built around interesting stories, cool personalities and the right product,â Todd Krinsky, Head of Reebok Classics and Basketball, told SLAMonline late this afternoon.â I think over the last few years weâve gotten away from that and become another basketball brand. So, we called a timeout. What weâre doing moving forward is, weâre still absolutely in performance basketball, weâre just going to have a different approach.â
âWhen the John [Wall] conversation came up,â says Krinsky, âit was, Moving forward, would he better better suited with ourÂ positioningÂ or adidasâ positioning? We kind of felt the adidas side, giving where theyâre going, would be a better home for him. So, we talked to him and made that decision.â
