The Portland Trail Blazers of the National Basketball Association hosted the Charlotte Hornets on Monday night and before tip-off, one superstar was spotted wearing Paris Saint-Germain’s Jordan Brand clothing.
Carmelo Anthony signed with the Trail Blazers last November after searching for a team since January 2019 and despite his signature shoe line being discontinued, Anthony remains a Jordan ambassador, which explains his pre-game outfit.
The new PSG x Jordan collection worn by Anthony is in collaboration with the new fourth kit that PSG is set to release later this month.

This isn’t the first time the former Syracuse University star has worn PSG x Jordan gear. In November of 2018, when the collection was originally launched, Anthony posted a video on his Twitter account showing him wearing a hoodie with the Paris Jumpman logo.

Several athletes over the past 18 months have been spotted wearing this iconic collection, including NBA rookie Zion Williamson.
The fourth jersey will be unveiled on January 24 ahead of an NBA game in Paris and PSG will wear the kit on January 26 when they travel to Lille OSC. As great as the kit looks, I would still prefer PSG wear their traditional colors during the UEFA Champions League.
An official release date for lifestyle collection isn’t known but expect it to be around the end of January to coincide with the release on the pitch.
