Orlando Magic center Marcin Gortat received a phone call from shoe sponsor Reebok because the company was upset about his Michael Jordan/Nike logo tattoo. "They didn't say anything about it when I signed the contract, so it's not going anywhere," said Gortat

:laugh: This makes me laugh. Go Gortat!

Well I mean its obvious if your Reebok you don't want your player running around with a Nike Jordan tattoo in plain view. Sucks for you buddy but your not that good anyway I'm sure they can find someone better.

Good for Gortat.

However if I was him, I'd cover it with a sleeve because Gortat would probably want the extra money.

He's a basketball player and probably idolizes Jordan. Pretty simple. i saw a guy in a tattoo shop get that on his neck before. Classy.

Gortat clearly said that they don't pay him enough money to cover it up or get rid of it and makes more money playing ball so he doesn't care what Reebok wants.

That says something about how marketed sports is. Logos are more important than players.

The best is this kid I play with at the gym every now and then who has an NBA logo tattoo...lmfao. Oh, and I will say that I can't take anyone with a neck tattoo seriously. Sorry Delonte West (I mean he doesn't want to be taken seriously anyways so whatever, I still think he's hilarious), Larry Hughes, and others.

I knew a guy that I played ball with in highschool that got the buddweister B king tattoo on his arm. He thought he was hot **** back then, wow what a ****** he is thinking now. Who in the hell would ever get a brand tattooed on themselves. And no he didn't have a B anywhere in his name, he was just some dumb hillbilly.

I can't tell if this is selling out or not, he is saying no to Reebok but he has another company brand tattooed on him. Either way go Gortat.

EDIT: props to Reebok for finding Gortat, dudes a beast few ever heard of before.

It is the Jumpman logo. He is from Poland, it is Michael Jordan, probably thought it would be cool because Jordan is the best player ever.

Every basketball player has ridiculous tattoos... I don't think his tattoo is that bad.

He's paying tribute to his hero (presumably). I like it.

Why don't they treat him like Kunte Kinte and chop off his legs.

Then having the nerve to ask him to wear make-up like his name is Rupaul or Miss J from America's Next Top Model.

Somewhere someone from Team Jordan is saying pimpin ain't easy.

may be because MJ is the best player ever?

and the logo, because in europe, where nike was not so huge at that time, was more a MJ's logo than nike's

No matter what your Gortattoo has, you're still not a big enough player to get endorsed by nike, stick with reebok or maybe a starbury type of thing!
