Michael Jordan believes his shoe legacy will outlast his basketball legacy

web1_2015-06-12T163641Z_2090396870_PM1EB6C1FCQ01_RTRMADP_3_BASKETBALL-JORDAN_3While they have been many NBA players past and present have seen their popularity grow, no one will come close to matching the popularity of Hall of Famer Michael Jordan. The success on and off the court for Jordan is extraordinary and mind-blowing. What’s even crazy about Jordan’s popularity is that kids that never seen him play a lick of basketball continue to buy every shoe that he releases.

Jordan sees this and believes that his shoe legacy will outlast his basketball legacy.

“To me, it’s much bigger than Michael Jordan. It’s going to outlive me in terms of what I did for the game of basketball. It’s going to be something that’s going to last for a while.’’

“I can’t explain it and no one can explain it,’’ Jordan told USA TODAY Sports. “And if anybody could explain it or duplicate it, they would have done it by now.’’

Jordan is correct because people will be buying his shoes longer after he is gone. It’s pretty remarkable and I don’t know if there will be another sports athlete that will ever get to this level.
