MAYA MOORE AIR JORDAN AND JORDAN BRAND PE
WNBA's Maya Moore of the Minnesota Lynx is living hoop dreams and then some. The 23 year old has a league title, an Olympic gold medal, two national championship rings and is a member of Team Jordan......Oh, did I mention she also wears the number 23!
Nike decided to bless Maya with her own PE version of the Air Jordan XXIII(23), with colors and features paying tribute to her achievements. And PE versions of the Jordan Aero Manias in 3 home and 3 away versions. Here's a bit of what Nike said in their press release: "The number 23 is synonymous with the Jordan Brand thanks to MJ, but today, 23 belongs to Maya Moore. After a summer that yielded a championship in China while averaging over 41 points and ten boards per game, Moore returns home for her third season in Minnesota. She wears the number 23, is now 23 years old, and as a member of Team Jordan (23), it’s only right that she hits the court in player exclusive Air Jordan XX3s to start the season."
I must say, this is one of the best pairs of PE's that I've seen in a long time. A big congrats to Maya for her great accomplishments. Being an awesome professional athlete at such a young age, there's more greats to come.
