What if Michael Jordan Signed With Adidas instead of Nike?

The original Air Jordans that set it all off!
Gary Stokan: Former Adidas Rep and Peach Bowl President / CEO

Michael Jordan is synonymous with Nike, and the Air Jordans are arguably the most famous Nikes of all time. But when Michael Jordan played at UNC and before he went pro, MJ LOVED Adidas shoes and athletic apparel. Nike made him an incredible offer at the time worth over 2 million dollars. Gary Stokan, former UNC coach turned rep for Adidas tells the story of how Michael Jordan almost signed with Adidas, the effect of his signing for Nike’s bottom line (It was GREAT!), and the affect of MJ’s endorsement deal as a whole in the basketball shoe industry.
