MJ's son will wear Jordans at adidas-sponsored UCF
Marcus Jordan will rep his father's brand during his freshman year.
words_Nick DePaula Though it wasn't until Michael Jordan was a professional that he actually wore Nike sneakers on-court, as he repped the Star Chevron while at the Converse-sponsored University of North Carolina, it appears as though a different principle will apply to his son Marcus these days, with his father having his own brand and all. Marcus, a freshman at the University of Central Florida, won't be wearing adidas Basketball footwear all season long like the rest of his teammates during his first year on the UCF Basketball Team. The Knights have been sponsored by adidas for the past few years, but Marcus will wear Air Jordans. "It's a level of importance with the Jordan Brand and my family," Marcus Jordan said on the team's Media Day. "It's no disrespect to adidas. I have a high level of respect for adidas, but I'm going to be wearing Jordan shoes. I'm wearing the adidas uniform and all my other UCF gear is adidas, but the shoes are going to be Jordan Brand." As for the rest of his teammates hoping to perhaps wear the Jumpman this year, "UCF will again wear adidas," Doug Richards, Associate Director of UCF Athletics Communications, was able to confirm by email. Here's Marcus Jordan on UCF's Picture Day, seen wearing the Jordan Jumpman Elite. What do you think? Should Marcus honor his team's brand commitment and wear adidas, or should the school make a special exception in this case?
