Year: 2009
Sneaker: Reebok

Marcin Gortat already had his Jumpman tattoo when Reebok signed him to an endorsement deal, but maybe he wore long pants to the signing and Reebok never asked about it. During the 2009 NBA Finals, however, Reebok asked the then-Magic center to cover up the ink. He declined—and now wears Nikes.
