Marcus Jordan & the University of Central Florida

Marcus Jordan, the son of world famous Michael Jordan is going to play basketball at The University of Central Florida. There's just one hitch.

Marcus Jordan wants to wear his dad's brand of sneakers: Air Jordan from Nike. That doesn't seem like a big deal until you realize that UCF has a $2 million contract with Adidas which requires that all atheletes and coaches where Adidas brand footwear.

Marcus Jordan now finds himself in the middle of a controversy that he'd probably like to avoid. Our advice to him: make a name for yourself by working hard and playing by the rules. Not by riding your dad's coattails.
