Last week Michael Jordan called 76ers point guard Tony Wroten to apologize after his shoes fell apart during a game against the Pacers. Since then there’s been CRAZY rumors that MJ isn’t happy with the quality from Nike and he plans on splitting with the company (and taking his Jordan brand with him). I can just hear sneakerheads freaking out everywhere!! So is there any truth to that rumor?! Check out what his people had to say…
In the “Well, duh” department of the newsroom, we have a quote to confirm that Michael Jordan will NOT be parting ways with Jordan Brand or Nike in 2015 as reported by countless websites across the web. TheShoeGame has received an official comment from Michael Jordan’s Business Manager, Estee Portnoy.
“There is absolutely no truth to this rumor claiming that Michael Jordan is parting ways with the Jordan Brand. Michael has made no such statements. He is – and will remain – fully committed to the Jordan Brand.”
