This morning we learned that Aldridge, who has wore Nike sneakers his whole career, has signed a deal with Jordan Brand. This gives JB a great frontline trio of Carmelo Anthony, Blake Griffin and LaMarcus Aldridge.

While Aldridge was previously mum when asked about the rumor that he might be leaving Nike for Jordan, the three-time All-Star had been dropping hints about the move by way of his sneaker choices throughout training camp. While he’s been wearing Jordan’s off the court for some time now, Aldridge only recently started wearing various Jordan brand models during practices and games.

But in Friday night’s victory versus Israeli club side Maccabi Haifa, Aldridge broke out a pair of Air Jordan Retro XIII “He Got Game” (above), marking the first time he’s worn Jordan’s in an NBA game. With the cat completely out of the bag, Aldridge confirmed at the team’s practice on Sunday that he had signed on with Jordan.
