SHARE Courtroom sketcher has no worries about stealing Michael Jordan’s likeness

As a six-time NBA champion with the Bulls, Michael Jordan didn’t like anyone stealing anything from him on the court. And, he surely doesn’t like anyone taking from him off of it.

That’s why he’s been in a Chicago federal court, defending the theft of his likeness in a grocery-store ad.

From the Chicago Sun-Times:

Michael Jordan told a federal jury Tuesday he sued the grocery chain Dominick’s to protect my likeness, my image, something I value very preciously.

Jordan has always been protective of his likeness, a strategy that has helped land him on Forbe’s most-recent list of billionaires.

Clearly, Jordan values his image a lot more than the courtroom sketcher did on Tuesday. The drawing wasn’t as bad as Tom Brady’s, but …

Maybe the sketcher just wanted to avoid another court case—with MJ!
