When I first read Friday's story about Marcus Jordan's Nikes causing contract problems for the University of Central Florida, I wondered what the big deal was. Can't a student player wear whatever shoes he wants on the court? Then, I found out that Adidas gave his school uniforms, equipment and shoes - as long as UCF players wore Adidas apparel. So when Marcus chose to play with UCF, he was probably expected, like the other UCF players, to lace up in Adidas.
It was an unusual choice for him to have: whether to wear his father's namesake Air Jordans or to wear his school's Adidas-sponsored sneakers. What choice would you have made?
