Over the years, more and more NBA players have thrown on a pair of Air Jordans instead of less-glamorous offerings. And you don’t have to be Kobe or Gerald or even Juwan to enjoy the second looks that come with those J’s. You can just be Othyus Jeffers, a 25-year-old undrafted guard by way of the Spurs, Jazz, Italian League, NBDL and Robert Morris University.
Jeffers laced up the White/Black-Anthracite Air Jordan 2011 last night, getting 10 minutes of run and adding 2 points, 1 rebound, and 2 steals in the Wiz’s 111-76 loss to the Blazers. But whether or not you ever see Jeffers’ name in the headlines from now on, you’ll at least know that he plays in the NBA and he wears Air Jordans.
And that has made all the difference.
