BLOG: NBA Star Supports Voting… for Obama

The Houston Chronicle is reporting that Houston Rockets All-Star Tracy McGrady and recent NBA champion Kevin Garnett of the Boston Celtics are going to wear special red, white and blue Adidas sneakers tonight when their teamsĀ face off at 5:30 p.m. The shoes are also decorated with stars and stripes.

McGrady’s sneakers will be emblazoned with the words “Change is Needed,” which the player admits is an endorsement of Obama.

Adidas said in a statement that the special sneakers are supposed to encourage voting in general, and the stars picked the words themselves. McGrady told the Chronicle that he and his wife met Obama over the summer.

“(He is) a very nice gentleman,” McGrady said. “I believe in what he believes in.”
