Marcin Gortat, a man who famously sports a Jordan Brand tatoo on his calf, will no longer be receiving care packages from Reebok. As CNBC reports: “During the NBA Finals, Gortat disclosed that executives with the adidas-owned Reebok brand asked that Gortat cover up the Air Jordan tattoo on his calf since that brand is owned by competitor Nike. Gortat refused, saying that Reebok wasn’t paying him enough. The truth of the matter is they weren’t paying him anything. While Reebok did provide free gear to Gortat, “at no time did Reebok have a contract” with him, said Tom Shine, Reebok’s senior vice president of sports and entertainment marketing.”
