Jalen Green Outfitted In LaRopa & Virgil Abloh‘s Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 “MCA” Sneakers
CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES — Former five-star recruit Jalen Green, who was ranked No. 2 in the 2020 high school class by Rivals.com was outfitted in a LaRopa To “Live And Fly In LA” T-Shirt, a pair of black distressed denim jeans and Virgil Abloh‘s Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 “MCA” sneakers.
His outfit was accessorized with a LaRopa Lip Trucker Hat.
Last April 2020, Fresno-native Green announced that he’s bypassing college and joining the NBA’s G League for the 2020-21 season, he’s attempting to forge a new path for elite prospects (see it here).
The 6-foot-6 shooting guard has reached a substantial six-figure deal, sources said, to partner with the G League for a year before entering the 2021 NBA draft, where he’s a candidate to be the No. 1 overall pick.
The G League will create a “Select Team” in a designated city with a few roster spots for elite high school players who want to play professionally instead of going to college, sources said. The rest of the roster will be made up of veteran players.
Green will serve as the face of this unique new pathway to the NBA. The G League is also offering Green a full scholarship if he wants to obtain his college degree.
“I wanted to get better overall and prepare myself for the NBA because that’s my ultimate goal,” Green told Yahoo Sports. “Everything was planned out right and set up for me to succeed. I think this was a good decision at the end of the day. I’m still going to be able to go back to college and finish school. So, it’s not really that I’m missing out on college because I can go back and finish whenever I need to. School is a big thing in my family.”
