Air Jordan is no longer a boys club!
Maya Moore of the Minnesota Lynx has become the first female face of the Jordan Brand. She will likely get her own show, clothing line, and other sports-related deals.
Michael Jordan’s company released a press release today with the following statement included:
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.
Maya couldn’t be more excited about the deal:
“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.”
Cognrats, Maya! You deserve it, girl!!
