Michael Jordan is a man who stays busy. His hard work and determination have made him into a billionaire, and because he’s filthy rich, he can afford to always be doing something. You could say that he pretty much can do whatever he wants, whenever he wants.

On Saturday night he was one of many celebrities who made their way to Las Vegas for the Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather fight. The MGM Grand crowd was no doubt a who’s who of sports and entertainment.
But it wasn’t until after the fight that Jordan truly found himself in the middle of an altercation.
A scrum was breaking out as Jordan was trying to get to his ride, but instead of just powering though, His Airness interjected some calming vibes into the situation.
He didn’t have to do a dang thing, but he used his celebrity status for the better and apparently stopped the fight from going down.
Hey, if Michael Jordan told me to calm down, I’d sure as heck listen …
Jumpman NBA Jerseys?
In other Jordan news, the famous Jumpman logo could be coming to an NBA uniform near you.
According to a report from Business Insider, Nike is next in line to take over production of the league’s jerseys starting in the 2017-18 season. Adidas is currently the NBA’s jersey manufacturer, but the sides will be parting ways at the end of their current deal.
As far as the impact to actual game jerseys, it could mean the appearance of the Nike swoosh logo for the first time. At the same time, it’s being rumored that the Jumpman logo could be used as well (a la North Carolina).
It’s definitely not weird to think about the Charlotte Hornets wearing the Jumpman logo on their jerseys. After all, the man it’s based on owns the team. But as far as the rest of the league is concerned (outside of the Bulls and Wizards), it’s maybe a little weird to think a player (and now owner) from another team could be featured on your jerseys.
Personally, I love it. Jordan is basically a basketball God, and having the greatest player of all time represented on jerseys across the league that he helped build is kind of fitting. But if you’re a player who’s trying to be better than Jordan, or someone who just doesn’t like the Jordan brand, an option should be there to wear the traditional swoosh.
It’s thought at this point that teams will have a choice of which logo to wear, but nothing has been officially confirmed. One way or another, Nike jerseys are coming to the NBA…
Air Jordan Jasmine
Lastly, it appears Jordan’s daughter, Jasmine, is a chip off the old block. At least in the shoe department. Jasmine has her own Jordan brand shoe debuting soon.
It’s cool to see the Jordan shoe line continuing to evolve, and it’s even cooler that his daughter hand in designing the new ladies kicks.
