Did you know that Michael Jordan was about to sign with Adidas? The Company turned him down because they thought he was too short.
Unfortunately, for Adidas, the Company wanted a guy who was at least seven feet tall. To Adidas, this better represented the sport of basketball.
Just think about how this would have altered the course of history. First of all, if Adidas had signed Micheal, they probably would have signed Tiger Woods. Michael would still be Michael, and Tiger would still be Tiger. But what would have happened to the fates of Adidas and Nike?
