The Rookie Wall continues its coverage of Al-Farouq Aminu’s dream of endorsing an eyewear line. Shortly after draft night we told you about Aminu’s desire to procure an eyewear deal. On Friday, we brought you the press release from Geek Eyewear informing you about Al-Farouq Aminu’s endorsement deal with the eyewear company. Today, we bring you images of Aminu in various ads Geek Eyewear plans to use in both print and web in their “GEEKS GOT GAME!” ad campaign.
The Rookie Wall has confirmed with Alena Lehrer, creator of Geek Eyewear, that Aminu does not have a prescription and wears the eyewear for fashion purposes only. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
Side note: Geek Eyewear is located in Los Angeles and the Clippers ended up picking Aminu in the draft. Is it possible that Aminu knew he was going to the Clippers and reached out to Geek based on that? We certainly think it is.
