Heres a link:

look under the question:
Is there a "Nike conspiracy" regarding the USA men's basketball team?


Also, i didn't say he was hiding all the swishes, just two.

Well as a photographer alots wrong with the pose and the picture.
But as far as the team lol. Not matching UNI.'s as far as Socks and Shoes. I Don't care about corporate sponsors. Not matching stands out. Also not Height proportioned left to right.

He identified the shoe being covered up and the hand covering the logo. Those were the two things I was looking for.

On July 9 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/July_9), 2003 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2003), the company accepted a $305 million purchase offer from rival Nike (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nike,_Inc.).

i know they are still in business. i nabbed myself a pair of wades a year ago. i didn't know they were owned by nike. i guess i never really noticed much of a difference because they don't cost over 150 like new nikes do.
