SPORTS: Michael Vick RE-SIGNS With NIKE + Is Shannon Brown Opting To Leave The LA Lakers?

Four years ago, Michael Vick was one of the most hated men in America after he pleaded guilty to federal charges of dogfighting.  But after serving his time, NIKE is ready to offer him some redemption and has resigned him as a spokesman. 

Get the deets inside and find out about the big shake-up at the LA Lakers that may ship Shannon Brown and wife Monica out of Los Angeles.

Has America forgiven Michael Vick for being convicted of dogfighting?  According to sports giant NIKE, just maybe....

NIKE is back in business with Michael Vick after abruptly dropping him from their lineup after his doggie bustup with the feds.

Mike's agent Joe Segal released a statement saying,

 “Mike has had a great relationship with Nike and is excited to be part of the Nike team again.”  

Vick’s longtime agent Joel Segal told CNBC that “Michael is excited to have a long-term and strong relationship with Nike.”

The deal was done by Chicago-based attorney Andrew Stroth.

 

NIKE spokesman Derek Kent also had this to say, 

“Michael acknowledges his past mistakes.  We do not condone those actions, but we support the positive changes he has made to better himself off the field.”

It's nice to see the advertising world giving Michael a second chance at making more money than most of us will ever see.  THIS is how you make a comeback.

 

In other news:

Shannon Brown has opted out of the final year of his contract with the LA Lakers, making him a free agent

But Lakers fans should not put those old jerseys on Ebay just yet, as Shannon opted out of his last contract but then resigned to the LA Laker a few years ago.  So maybe its a tactic for more money....or time on the court. 

In a statement, Shannon recently said

"I haven't ruled out the Lakers," said Brown. "I don't know if they will rule me out. I'm staying open."

So I guess his free agent status isn't cut and dry....we will see how this plays out.  Monica better get in all the dinners with her new besties the Kardashian-Odoms that she can....

Im very happy for Vick and

Im very happy for Vick and Shannon Brown is very talented, but Monica married him on the rebound after she realized that Rock face didnt want her and neither did any of the other rappers and athelets she let run in her pre Shannon. I hope his concentration is up this season. He's a solid athelete who deserves a chance.

Let's be real...M. Vick

Let's be real...M. Vick was/is the most hated ahthlete thanks to being black and a media who seems to enjoy scape-goating these black athletes at their whim, no matter what they did or didn't do. The new hated black athlete is Cam Newton. And what did he do? Not a DAMN thing but chose to play college football for a rival team but the way those in the sports media have treated him, one would think he murdered someone or animals. All the media screams of his father solicting his services is baseless and nothing but smoke used to dsitract folks from paying attention to what they should be paying attention to, which is what they did to M. Vick also. M. Vick go do you. They already did to you what they still seem to enjoy doing to our people any chance they get.

Shannon is cute enough to carry a team. When I go to heat games its mostly because I have a crush on Wade…I would go to a game just to watch Shannon sweat and run. As for Vick..what can I say???

Please do your research

Please do your research before you post your "news" stories. He has been resigned by Nike... The Kenjuan Wilkins quote you are referencing is from 2009. http://www.cnbc.com/id/43568810?__source=RSS*blog*&par=RSS
