Nike welcomes Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

According to a tweet he just sent out over the worldwide web, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is now part of the Nike family. I don’t know the contract details, but there are two large banners towering over two pools and nicely trimmed shrubbery so it must be official.

I call dibs on the first pair of 13s, if and when he ever gets his first shoe.

    11- There are more swooshes. That’s one of about 15 or 20 buildings. Estimate… can’t remember exaclty… but plenty of swooshes.
