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.
