Maya Moore Named First Female Jordan Athlete


She wears #23, lead the country is scoring and is a multiple champion. All of that was fine and dandy but now Maya Moore has reached another plateau being named as the first female to rep the Jordan Brand.

Moore now joins a list of athletes that includes Yankee Shortstop Derek Jeter, and fellow basketball players Chris Paul, DeWayne Wade and Carmelo Anthony.

Not only has Maya proven to be a prolific winner on the court, but her hunger and determination to make an impact off the court makes her a valuable addition to the Jordan family. We look forward to working with Maya as she carries her success to the next level

Maya, who always keeps it humble, spoke about the signing

As a student of the game, it is a dream come true to align myself with a brand that has a rich history in sports. Like most kids, I grew up idolizing Michael Jordan and continue to work relentlessly to reach his iconic status on the court. I’m truly motivated to take my career to the next level as a member of Team Jordan.
