Jordan Brand has signed its first-ever Chinese basketball player in Guo Ailun, a 24-year-old rising star who currently plays for the Lianoing Flying Leopards of the CBA. This signing comes as part of the brand’s 20th Anniversary celebration of its entrance into the Chinese market, which considers basketball its most popular sport.
