Air Zion. The first overall pick has signed is first shoe deal with Jordan brand, and he’s got a big payday coming. A 7 year, 75 million dollar deal. That’s a ridiculous deal for a guy who has yet to play in an NBA game. Jordan is going to have to take a page out of Nike’s book with building shoes for LeBron. Both are athletic freaks and need shoes that work for them. We saw Zion bust threw a pair of Paul George’s signature shoes. He needs a shoe built to hold together, and let him still jump out of the gym.
Zion is joining guys like Russell Westbrook, Kemba Walker, and Jimmy Butler. And whether he deserves it or not, Zion will most likely get a signature shoe before the rest of the other Jordan signees.
