Fortnite x Michael Jordan? Fortnite x NBA? New Skin or LTM?

Fortnite’s news section has just released the first teaser for something upcoming and new, and most likely never seen before. The news section has just introduced an image of Michael Jordan’s Jumpman pose. The similar used and first seen during one of his dunk contests, with a dunk attempt from the free throw line.

To claim that’s Michael Jordan’s image, you can compare it the official Wikipedia statement regarding the Jumpman logo. It is literally the same image as found on Wikipedia.

Michael Jordan doing the “Jumpman” pose came in a photo shoot for Life magazine leading up to the 1984 Olympic Games before Michael Jordan had signed with Nike.

So, the image below could be connected to multiple things.

  1. Michael Jordan related LTM
  2. NIKE collab with Fortnite
  3. NBA collab with Fortnite (less likely)
  4. Connection to the upcoming Space Jam 2 movie?

We named a couple of them, but we’re still uncertain what this aims at. What are your thoughts, will this be a new LTM or another amazing collaboration? Nevertheless, we’ll have to wait and see the output tomorrow, most likely introduced with patch 9.10.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
