When every other team switches to Nike jerseys in 2017, Jordan’s Charlotte may have Jumpman logo

Starting with the 2017-18 season, Nike will take over from Adidas as the maker of NBA uniforms, and those jerseys will have a little Nike swoosh on them (just as there is an Adidas logo now).

Except in Charlotte, where Michael Jordan’s team may have something far more Jordanesque, reports Darren Rovell of ESPN.

I like the idea of the “Jumpman” logo on the Charlotte jerseys, both something different and a little nod to the team owner who happened to propel Nike to the top of the basketball shoe and clothing market.

You can bet those jerseys also will have shoulder-patch ads on the opposite side as well.
