Michael Jordan RumorsAll NBA Players
A Beijing court has dismissed a trademark case brought by US basketball superstar Michael Jordan against a company using a similar name and logo to his Nike-produced brand, a report said. The former Chicago Bull is arguably the most popular international basketball star in China and is known in the country as “Qiaodan”, a Chinese version of his name.
Agents have at times sidestepped Cho to chat directly with Jordan, according to league sources. The team has turned over almost its entire scouting and analytics departments in the past year. (Though the Hornets recently hired Mike Born, a well-regarded Cho ally from Portland, to a key scouting position.) The relationship between Cho and Clifford has been cool since the team dismissed Rod Higgins, a Jordan ally with whom Clifford felt he could talk hoops, per sources familiar with the matter. Cho, Clifford, and Polk all downplayed the idea of a rift, and the two wings of the organization worked well together this summer to upgrade the team’s shooting across all positions — a goal they shared.
Finally, Patrick concluded the interview by asking Bird if he could take his old friend and current Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan in a game of one-on-one. Bird joked that he’d wear a Hickory uniform for the contest before revealing who he thought would come out on top. “Boy, that’d be a good game,” Bird said. “God, I hate to admit this, but he’d kill me.”
Business Insider took an in-depth look at the Charlotte Hornets owner’s finances. Whether it’s from his Nike royalties, endorsement deals or other things, the 52-year-old is still raking in the cash. Jordan can buy pretty much anything he wants—and, of course, make sure that it’s Carolina blue—as a result of having that much money. He has a private jet, a customized golf cart, a luxurious Florida mansion and more.
