Michael Jordan Scores Again, This Time With his Jumpman Logo

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Michael Jordan is showing he still has the ability to score big — even though he hasn't played in nearly 15 years.

The Hornets owner's latest slam dunk off the court might come by way of the NBA's new uniform contract with Nike.

Since the Jordan Brand is a Nike subsidiary and the namesake of the six-time NBA champion, the Hornets will be the only NBA team to wear the Jordan Brand "Jumpman" logo on their uniforms this season. That would appear to be a merchandising windfall.

After the switch from Adidas, the other 29 NBA teams will wear the Nike "swoosh" on their uniforms.

Charlotte's All-Star point guard Kemba Walker loves the idea of the Hornets being a slightly unique — and knows it's because of Jordan.

"I mean, he's the GOAT (Greatest of All Time)," Walker said. "Everybody loves MJ. Everybody loves the way he competed and the way he carries himself."

Lady Comets Win Second Cheer Title in School History

The roars could be heard throughout the Lloyd Noble Center in Norman, Oklahoma.

The announcer had just called the runner up of the Class 2A State Competitive Cheerleading competition, Ketchum, and now eight other teams were waiting, hoping to hear their name called as State Champions.

“I was pretty confident because I knew that the stunt and the pyramid that we had done was more difficult that anything the other teams had done,” said Jennifer Hohmann, Hinton cheerleading coach. “But you never know sometimes because it usually comes down to a point or two and hopefully you’re on the right end of that.”

And they were. Moments later, Hinton was announced as the Class 2A State Champions, and the loudest cheers filled the arena as the Lady Comets had won their second title since 2008.

tures of the cheerleaders and coaches on the floor to the parents and supporters in the stands that Hohmann can’t stop looking back on.
