At yesterday’s Jordan Brand Event in Paris, The G.O.A.T. Michael Jordan introduced Jayson Tatum as the latest athlete to sign to his Jordan Brand Label. Spending the last two seasons wearing Nike, I guess “His Airness” felt it was time to bring him over to the flagship, Jordan Brand. However Tatum’s passion for Jordan Brand runs very deep as he stated in an interview with Jordan.
” Air Jordan Is are my all-time favorite. They were the first, and they basically set the tone for what was to come. MJ himself made the shoe iconic — just being the greatest to ever do it. To me, it’s the best shoe, and 20-plus years later, it’s still the hottest shoe out “
With Kyrie Irving severing his relationship with the Celtics which is abundantly clear that he won’t be in “Beantown” next season, Tatum will be the “guy” in Boston for many years to come. I can bet JT will be getting the Ray Allen treatment from Jordan Brand where “Jesus Shuttlesworth” was given some pretty sweet Player Exclusives when he was a Celtic a few years ago.
