The old adage that good things come in threes is definitely true for Jordan Brand, who today announced the addition of three new athletes from the 2013 rookie class. Those players -- Victor Oladipo, Otto Porter Jr. and Cody Zeller -- represent three of the top four picks from the 2013 NBA draft. Zeller, drafted by MJ himself for the Charlotte Bobcats, is a 7'0" center who was the third member of his household to be named Indiana Mr. Basketball, before a college career at Indiana where he earned Conference Player of the Year, as well as numerous All-America honors. Another former Hoosier, Victor Oladipo, is a 6'4" shooting guard for the Orlando Magic who was named the Sporting News National Player of the Year in 2013 and is already projected as a favorite for Rookie of the Year. Otto Porter, a 6'7" small forward for the Washington Wizards, is currently sidelined with a hip flexor injury, but upon his return he's expected to flex his massive 7-foot-1 wingspan as part of a versatile skill set on both sides of the ball. All three will lace up in the Jordan Prime.Fly to start the season.
