A few weeks ago it was revealed that the NBA approved a new measure which would let its players don social justice messages on their jerseys when the season gets back underway, now it looks like the Jumpman logo will be shining right alongside messages like “Black Lives Matter” and “I Can’t Breathe.”

Nike has announced that Jordan Brand will be included on all Statement Edition NBA jerseys once the ball hits the hardwood in Florida come July 30.
The inclusion of the Jumpman logo on Statement Edition uniforms expands Jordan Brand’s connection to all 30 NBA franchises. Since 2017, the Charlotte Hornets have been outfitted by Jordan Brand, and the brand has supplied the NBA All-Star Game uniforms for three years in a row.
Racists and MAGA cult members gonna start the boycott Jordan hashtag based off this or nah?
Though many NBA players are looking forward to making a political statement for the world to see come to the end of the month, LeBron James and Anthony Davis have said they decided to keep their names on their backs while Jimmy Butler has decided to go with a blank jersey for the remainder of the season. A move he says represents that he could be anyone anywhere at any time. And while some call LeBron selfish for choosing to keep his own name on his Lakers piece, word has spread that the NBA turned down the message he wanted to display on his person as the reason he’s going with “James” on his back. No word on what message LeBron originally wanted to have for himself.
Will you be picking up a Jumpman Statement Edition jersey when they drop later this summer? Let us know in the comments.
