Jordan's kid screws his team

Written by Juan Cena on Thursday, November 05 2009 and posted in SWRT

The University of Central Florida is in the final year of a sponsorship deal with adidas . Final being the word emphasized in that sentence, since adidas has decided not to deal with UCF in the future. You can blame Michael Jordan's kid for that.
Marcus Jordan, who plays guard for UCF decided he didn't want to wear adidas because of his dad's ties to Nike. So in a exhibition game against Saint Leo Wednesday night he wore a pair of Air Jordans. Naturally adidas wasn't amused and announced it would not have any future business dealings with the school in the future.
This was a real smart move on Marcus Jordan's part. This little stunt could potentially cost his team millions in an economic downturn. I doubt this will endear him to UCF head basketball coach Kurt Speraw either. I get the feeling he might be out of a little pocket change also.
I imaging Phil Knight is going to ride up on his white horse (or is that a Pegasus) and save the day with a Nike sponsorship deal for UCF. Though I almost want to see UCF punk both Marcus Jordan and his dad by signing a deal with Under Armour. Problem there is that Under Armour doesn't make basketball shoes.
