Jordan Brand talked more about New Orleans and the NBA All-Star weekend in a release:
During All-Star Week, Jordan Brand is celebrating its history with New Orleans which dates back to Michael Jordan nailing the Carolina game-winning shot of the 1982 collegiate National Championship game at the Superdome.
Thirty-five years later, the brand captures the spirit of that iconic moment by giving the Big Easy a series of new moments to shine. Throughout basketball’s mid-season spectacular, the brand will energize the community of New Orleans with exclusive product unveils and a host of unique experiences at its pinnacle brand activations.
