LeMarcus Aldridge

"We are thrilled to add LaMarcus to the Jordan Brand family," said Larry Miller, President of Jordan Brand. “LaMarcus’s pure athleticism and tenacity makes him a perfect fit with Jordan Brand and we are looking forward to being a part of his continued legacy.” 

The Texas native earned notoriety at a young age when he became a Parade All-American at Seagoville High School. After two dominating seasons at the University of Texas, LaMarcus declared for the 2006 draft and was selected as the second overall pick. He continues to shine at the professional level, where he has been selected to the All-Star team three times (2012, 2013 and 2014). 

"I have always been a huge fan of Jordan Brand and am so excited to represent them on the court this season," said Aldridge. "The legacy behind these products is unlike anything else in the sports world, and it's a great honor to be on the roster with some of the best players in the game."
