Dez Bryant is like a walking Jordan Brand billboard. The Dallas Cowboys wide receiver is rarely seen not wearing something with an Air Jordan logo on it. So it makes sense for Bryant to officially join Jordan's team. On Thursday night, it was posted on Bryant's official Twitter account that he just finished talking with Jordan on an elevator. Five hours later, the former first-round pick added that he is "officially with the Jordan brand." I didn't want to break the ice now but I'm going to go ahead and put it out there I'm officially with the Jordan brand @jumpman23 Dez Bryant (@DezBryant) April 5, 2013 After meeting Jordan in February, Bryant tweeted a picture of the two with the caption: "So excited I can't tweet right lol.meeting Michael Jordan tonight was the best moment of my life." Bryant, who has been known to tweet pictures of his Jordan shoes, purchased a pair for each of the Cowboys receivers for Christmas. Shout out to @dezbryant. He hooked all the wide receivers up with some Jordan's for Christmas. He's a quality fella. twitter.comBease11status Cole Beasley (@Bease11) December 23, 2012 Good news for his teammates: Bryant being part of the Jordan Brand might lead to more free gear finding its way into the locker room.
