Nick Young Swears Off Jordan Brand Products

Monday November 7th, 2011

Washington Wizards guard Nick Young said via Twitter that he will boycott all Jordan brand products.

“im not wearin jordans no more cant believe what i just seen and hear from MJ #ElvisDoneLeftTheBuilding and i didn’t delete it,” Young tweeted.

Young’s move is likely a statement against Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan’s hard-line stance against the players in ongoing labor negotiations.  Jordan had an NBA playing career that spanned 14 seasons. NBA commissioner David stern offered an ultimatum on Saturday giving players until Wednesday to accept the current proposal or face a deal that will favor owners.  There have been talks of the players decertifying the union in order to bring anti-trust suits against the owners.
