LANDOVER -- Chicago Bulls superstar Michael Jordan announced last night that he will definitely participate in the 1992 Summer Olympics after settling a dispute over the use of his image on Olympics apparel.
"I'm playing, but Nike is still retaining my exclusive merchandising license," Jordan said before last night's game against the Washington Bullets. "My face will not be on any Olympic apparel, but my percentage [approximately 2.8 percent] from royalties will go to USA Basketball."
The 12 Olympians were to divide 34 percent of the royalties after the NBA Properties totaled up the sales. As of now, Jordan, represented by ProServ of Arlington, Va., is the only Olympian who will not allow his likeness to be sold during the games in Barcelona.
