Exactly a month ago, we shared with you Washington Wizards guard Nick Young’s explanation of his “Not Wearing Jordans Anymore” comment.
He stated, “I was a little hurt by the comments that I heard from Michael Jordan. As a kid, that was like my favorite player. It was just the things he said about the lockout and how we, the players, don?t deserve too much. It kind of rubbed me the wrong way. I was just speaking out of frustration though because I was a Jordan kid growing up. I had every Jordan when I was younger.”
To further elaborate on him merely speaking out of frustration, Nick Young recently told the Washington Post that his Air Jordan protest is over. Which sneaker solidified his reconnection with Jordans? “Those were some of my favorites,” Nick Young said in regards to the recently released Air Jordan 11 “Concord”. “I might have to give Jordan a call and apologize. I didn’t know those came out. Those were my favorites. Young ended the discussion by saying, “Protest is over. I’m sorry Michael.”
