    Ok so as you can tell i'm new to niketalk so don't all jump down my throat at once if i posted this in the wrong section... I looked all over theforums for an answer to this question but couldn't find it, if someone knows of one please just post a link so this can be locked up. But ANYWAYS thataside...

    I was wondering why the Bulls are sponsored by adidas and not Jordan? I mean, he only played with them for almost 15 years... It just doesn't make anysense to think that his alma mater is sponsored by his company but not his professional team.

    Does anyone know the reason behind this?

    Thanks guys, and go easy on the newbie [​IMG]

    It's not really a sponsorship, but more of adidas being contracted by the NBA to produceleague apparel.

    Ok you will probably get blasted but since its Christmas Im gonna help you out. NBA teams arent "sponsored" like college teams. The NBA has a dealwith adidas for merchandise. Every NBA teams uniforms and sideline apparel are made by adidas.

    As others mentioned they're sponsored by adidas, but even if they weren't chances are Nike would only sponsor the top teams... Sometimes companiescater to the whole team due to a key player...it's just business and marketing. The best wear the best.
