Nick Young’s Jordan Brand Protest is Over


A few months after Nick Young vowed to never wear Jordans again due to MJ’s lockout stance as an owner, the Wizards guard is apparently relenting, because he can’t resist wearing Jordans. Considering all the hoopla over J’s in recent days, it’s not too big a surprise. Per Michael Lee of The Washington Post‘s Twitter account:

    dont understand why people went crazy over the concord pair, now if they were the black patent leather with the red gum bottom, I would of had to throw some elbows too, to get me a pair. those were the greatest sneakers of all-time.

    So what Nick Young is saying is that his ethics can be bought for a pair of patent leather sneakers. That’s pretty weak.

    That’s probably an amazing christmas news for mr. jordan… one customer more, i guess he’s totally astonished.

    NICK YOUNG what a weakling… apparently his willpower is equals to a pair of shoes. LOL. could have worn nikes, adidas or even better.. UA.
    hypebeast.

    Why in the world would the players assume that Jordan would be on their side during the lockout? He was on the side of the players when he was a player, now he’s an owner. As a small-market owner, why would he want escalating salaries and guaranteed contracts? Any player that thought Jordan would fight for them is just naive. Those who aren’t naive and still thought Jordan wouldn’t fight for his own side are just stupid.

    Also, Grant Hill’s first Fila shoe was the best BBall shoe ever. Great support, lasted a full year (fresh for high school tryouts, all season and a summer on the blacktop) and looked crazy nice. The Kevin Johnson Converse were the devil incarnate. A teammate and I both had them for a year, and we never had so many rolled ankles.

    @JT — your protest is a little easier given your income vs Mr. Nick Young’s

    Still have my OG AJ XI’s in black with the red sole in the shoe cabinet, fungus has gotten hold of the leather and turned the black into mottled gray, same for my original VI’s in the same colour. Utterly unplayable, but sentimental value to me.
    Retro J’s have never held appeal for me, cause i ball in Shox or HD’s now and don’t wear bball kicks casually.

    Fu(king idiot. I bet if he wasn’t a NBA baller, he’d be one of those trampling of others in the mall.

    Any grown person who goes crazy over shoes that cost 10.00 dollars to make in sweat shops, should reevaluate their life goals. BOOK IT!!

  • http://slamonline.com Saviour

    Seed…for the love of God, ‘book it’ doesn’t apply to the term you just said. You use ‘book it’ when making a prediction, not when speaking a basic sentence.

  • ClayDefayette

    The Seed is right for once, let’s let him have his victory.

  • Ends

    Yeah thats kinda his thing hater. let him live

  • MikeC.

    The Seed books everything. Good, bad, pretty, ugly, black, white, apple, banana, pork, kosher, it doesn’t matter. He’ll book it. I’m gonna start booking things too. It feels fun. BOOK IT!!

  • MikeC.

    Hey Seed, what is your occupation? I seriously hope you’re a book-keeper. Or librarian.

  • Blasphemy

    The Seed is probably an accountant or one that pretends to be in real life.

  • Jer Dawg

    Get your money first Nick. Jordan got his and still wrecking lives with the shoes. Them assholes sitting up at Nike/Jordan are just laughing at the consumers.
