Nike scored the official uniform deal with the NFL in 2012 and has extended those rights until the end of the 2019 season.

Behind the scenes, NBA executives and Adidas officials had problems seeing eye to eye, as the Germany based company still put most of its efforts into soccer. sales rankings, as Under Armour became No. 2 in sales behind Nike.
