Making an earlier-than-expected return to the Charlotte Hornets' lineup after suffering a torn elbow ligament ahead of the season, Nicolas Batum is back on the court wearing a new sneaker brand.
An Adidas athlete for his first 9 seasons in the league, Batum is now a pitchman for his boss as a member of Team Jordan. In his two games back, Batum has laced up Hornets-inspired Player Exclusive colorways of the Air Jordan 32. Tonight against the Chicago Bulls, a white-based "Home" pair.
Batum joins teammates Kemba Walker, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Frank Kaminsky, Cody Zeller and Dwayne Bacon on the Jordan roster. The Hornets are also the only NBA team with Jordan-branded uniforms.
