Jabari Parker signs with Jordan Brand

Jordan Brand has welcomed its new, potential star: none other than the hometown’s Jabari Parker. This is no doubt a dream come true for the Simeon grad as the announcement comes just hours before his primary lifelong dream comes true at the NBA Draft. But growing up in Chicago, how can you not feel honored to represent the brand of its biggest sports hero? That goes without saying. I loved the timing and tweet by Jordan Brand of the announcement, as the Jumpman is on the come-up with some of today’s young stars (Finals MVP, Kawhi Leonard the latest to go under the lights.)
