“Michael Jordan was back in his old stomping grounds of Chicago this week, taking the stand in court on Tuesday for his lawsuit against Dominick’s, a now defunct grocery chain, which used his likeness in a print ad which appeared in a 2009 issue of Sports Illustrated.
Having recently taken an L in a lawsuit against a Beijing company that specializes in producing fugazzi Jordans, His Airness is thirsty for a win this time around.
According to reports, not only did the grocery store fail to ask Jordan for permission to use his likeness but he said, under oath, that he would’ve rejected the deal anyway because he only accepts media deals that are worth more than $10 million.”

Michael Jordan said in court today that he doesn't do personal media deals for less than $10 million.
