WHOA. THIS IS BIG (that’s what she said. *eye roll*). @MooreMaya is the FIRST female face of the Jordan Brand. The @UConnAthletics Basketball Alum and now professional player for @MinnesotaLynx (I truly hate the names they gave these teams. They all sound bootleg as hell). It never dawned on me that they never had a female to rep the brand.
The definition of basketball, @MichaelBJordan, and brand team issued in a press release saying:
I am thrilled to welcome Maya Moore into the Jordan Brand. Not only has Maya proven to be a prolific winner on the court, but her hunger and determination to make an impact off the court makes her a valuable addition to the Jordan family. We look forward to working with Maya as she carries her success to the next level.
As a student of the game, it is a dream come true to align myself with a brand that has a rich history in sports. Like most kids, I grew up idolizing Michael Jordan and continue to work relentlessly to reach his iconic status on the court. I’m truly motivated to take my career to the next level as a member of Team Jordan.
