Michael Jordan’s orginal 5 year Nike deal with incentives could’ve ended 2 years early if Jordan did not accomplish these 3 things: Win Rookie of The Year, Become an All Star, and average 15, 20, or 25 pts? (He really never had to worry about the deal ending because there was a claus he didn’t have to do any of the 3 if he sold at least $4 Million a year in shoes – Air Jordan’s were an immediate sensation thanks to the NBA outlawing them – Nike should’ve sent a thank you $1 million to the league for single-handedly creating the most successful shoe line in history – If they had a little more insight – they probably could’ve worked out a deal with Nike & Micheal for a very small percentage of sales that would’ve meant millions/maybe billions for the league)
