A message to the world… from an Air Jordan fan
I recently saw a few news stories related to people buying Jordan XI concords. Many thoughts came to me after reading this one: “Air Jordan fans destroy property, trample shoppers in search of new shoes.”
The story reads, ” Michael Jordan fans and a whole lot of utter and absolute morons descended upon malls across America early Friday morning to push each other over and destroy property in order to buy some basketball shoes.”
I refuse to share the same category as “a whole lot of utter and absolute morons.”
A true Air Jordan fan should refuse to be a slave to consumerism, refuse to be a money hungry reseller, refuse to physically hurt another human being for sneakers. A true Air Jordan fan shares the passion for the game of basketball, shares the good childhood memories & stories of sneakers and is humble & kind to fellow Air Jordan fans.
Please note that all the Nike/Jordan Brand commercials/marketing campaign/so called “hype” are only suggestions for people to buy the shoes. Those “whole lot of utter and absolute morons” made their own decisions to be that way.
As for Michael Jordan, all he did was play a beautiful game of basketball, was a great competitor in sports, does right by his family and left a legacy that inspires people to be great in their own lives. You can envy him all you want, but don’t blame him for the things that those “whole lot of utter and absolute morons” did.
Lastly, I would like to wish you all have a safe and happy holidays!
