Croatia’s Dragan Bender Leaves Jordan-Sponsored National Team in Favor of adidas

Jun 29, 2015 | Gregory Williams |



While much is still being said about Jimmy Butler’s choice to leave adidas and take less money as a member of the Jordan Brand family, Croatian basketball star Dragan Bender is making waves and headlines with his latest move. Dragan, an adidas-sponsored athlete, won’t be participating in this year’s FIBA U19 World Championship due to a contract dispute. Backed by the Trefoil brand, Dragan’s team is endorsed by Jordan Brand which resulted in Bender both refusing to play in MJ’s kicks and leaving the team. Is Dragan’s move justified?
