View Full Version : A Nike Designers Classless Tweets After Rose Injury

After Derrick Rose suffered a season-ending ACL tear during the Chicago Bulls' 103-91 win over the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series on Saturday afternoon, the reaction of NBA fans, media members and fellow players alike consisted largely of shock and sorrow. A bummed-out legion began to wrap its mind around the enormity of the 2011 NBA MVP's injury and what it means for the top-seeded Bulls' title hopes and, potentially, the career arc of one of the league's brightest young superstars.

I say "largely" because the reaction also contained stuff like this bon mot from the Twitter account of Jason Petrie, a "senior footwear designer at Nike," according to LinkedIn, and the designer of the popular Nike basketball sneakers worn and endorsed by Miami Heat star LeBron James:

"Pooh," of course, is the nickname Rose was given by his grandmother when he was a kid. Rose, of course, wears and endorses adidas shoes; the Bulls point guard recently signed a 13-year endorsement deal with the shoemaker that, with incentives, could pay him more than $200 million. The intimation, of course, is that Rose wouldn't have torn a ligament in his left knee if the shoes on his feet when he landed that jump stop were emblazoned with a swoosh. Of course.

[Related: Derrick Rose's knee injury casts pall on Bulls' hopes | Video]

In this context, the hashtag "#GWS" likely stands for "get well soon." That'd make sense, anyway. That's what you always say to someone who just, for example, suffered a severe injury and is going to need surgery, rehabilitation and an awful lot of rest and healing before he can resume regular life activities, let alone go back to being one of the best basketball players alive.

The other stuff, though? Where you use the horrendous trauma someone just suffered as a snickering means of, what, promoting your brand? That doesn't make sense. That's not what you say.

Oh, you might think it — Petrie's tweet wasn't the only one I saw that made the "correlation equals causation" jump between Rose and New York Knicks rookie Iman Shumpert wearing adidas on the court and suffering injuries on Saturday. But you don't say it. Not if you've got some compassion, sense or perspective.

Or even just some appreciation for the fact that, as a representative for brands as mammoth as Nike and LeBron James, snarkily reveling in someone else's trauma — especially a well-liked someone like Rose, whom "everyone loves," according to James' Heat teammate Dwyane Wade, who's signed with Nike subsidiary Jordan Brand — probably isn't a great move, corporate-wise.

[Marc Spears: Derrick Rose injury clears path for LeBron, Heat]

Petrie followed up his statement that Rose "chose poorly" in not signing with Nike by claiming that "Y'all" — presumably the number of people who took issue with the way Petrie responded to Rose's injury — "take sh#t too serious! Never want to see anyone get hurt- I hope DRose comes back stronger than ever, he's too good." Not an apology, strictly speaking, but it at least contained a nice word or two for the injured Rose. Then, though, he bowed his back and brought back that sneer.
Petrie's right; we don't know him. Most of us probably didn't even know who he was before tonight. But we do now, and this is what we know him for: poor-taste remarks about someone getting hurt, followed up by excited reveling in the whirlwind they kicked up. You've got to wonder if that's going to make Nike, LeBron James and the other people Petrie's in business with very happy.

his tweets:

@sevenzro1: I speak my mind. You dont like it, Dont Follow! Just My Observations!

Obviously he should not have tweeted this but he has a point. Rose and Howard both wear Adidas. Shumpert does too. McGrady and Arenas wore them also. They have all had major knee problems, save for Dwight, who has the back problems. Some of this is almost definitely about the compressed schedule but it is of note. I think even Garnett wears Adidas but his knee injury from a couple of years ago was probably more to due to with massive wear and tear.

Of course all of that may be irrelevant and have nothing to do with shoes. Guys who wear Nikes get hurt too. Duncan is an Adidas guy and hasn't had any major knee issues (but his game is not an aerial one, very much a floor game based on skill, not athleticism).

Here's a conversation I had with Woj on twitter about how Y! sports is always setting out to destroy his image:


Me: Way to make this about LBJ. How much are they paying you to drag his name through mud? @WojYahooNBA @YahooBDL

Woj (direct message): Lebron is named "jason Petrie?"

Me: LBJ was mentioned a few times in the article and some readers (comment section) are already associating this with LBJ and heat. @WojYahooNBA

Woj (on twitter): I don't care if Nike punishes some shoe designer or not. Do wonder: Will Nike players tolerate swoosh exec mocking peers who blow out knee?

Me: Good point. He's def. wrong, but putting the spotlight on the players to say something... @WojYahooNBA

I really don't see why this is such a big deal. Did it lack class? yes, but even if there is no correlation between addidas shoes and knee injuries, him suggesting there might be a correlation will probably lead to a lot of people deciding to buy lebron's shoe over Rose's, and Nike over Addidas. The more people that get offended, the more word will get out about his tweet and he'll get to spread that same message to more people "Nike > Addidas".

Not to be a douche but having the right pair of shoes could have made a difference in most injuries leg/feet related and Nike has a great track record for making strong health supported shoes.

The closest thing was "one guy is getting stronger." There's no doubt he did call out Derrick Rose by name, though (pooh).

You're calling someone out for their age, yet you made a thread titled "lol" and told the mods to delete it... That's immature, and shows your age, yet you continue to call someone out for being immature... It is relevant

So I do one ''immature'' thing, and that trumps this guy, who just joined and his whole agenda is being immature. All I wanted to do with that thread was vent

LOL, got nothing against your country man. Just alluding to Durant/Westbrook in your avatar/sig pictures, guess I'm wrong. How long have you been a Thunder fan? :D

I'm not a LeBron ''fan''. Dwyane Wade is and will always be my favorite player, and he basically got me to like the game of basketball. Maybe I don't like bandwagon Thunder fans who cheese with them on NBA 2k12.

:laugh2: You just defined immature. You don't like Lebron fans? LOL, way to make a broad generalization of those who do enjoy him paying.

I feel like this thread has ran its course cause not it once again has come to insults/baiting/trolling as does every single thread in the NBA forum.

UCLA is my college ball team so i love my mans westbrook as for durant i think there's not that much love for him on this forum for being the 2nd best player.

pretty wrong to say that although rose's shoes are crap compared to the stuff lebron wears

rose shoes have zero cushioning

lebron's new shoes that dropped on saturday are ridiculously good basketball shoes

probably wouldnt have made a difference anyway for rose though

Did anyone see this headline on ESPN?

"LeBron's Nike designer jeers Rose after injury"


Are they serious? What does Lebron has to do with this? ESPN yet again proving why they are a joke.

espn didnt involve lebron. the idiot designer did.

one thing is for sure though, lebron is most likely going to talk to him about keeping his mouth shut. he doesnt need to be affiliated with more negativity when he is trying to clean up his image. lebron cant catch a break.

I will say this though. I gotta give it up for the Heat fanbase (at least what I have seen) for not taunting the Bulls fans (which we know don't like each other) and are like the rest of us: wishing Rose well in his recovery.

Agreed and this guy doesnt sound like a higher up if anything a sales guy in the mall selling shoes looking for attention a tool bag
