"It didn't upset me, " says Parker, who was part of nike air jordan the team that vetted CEO candidates. "It wouldn't be honest to say that I didn't think about it, though.

" After he graduated from Penn State in 1977 he majored in political science because "I had to pick something" he was hired by nike basketball sale Jeff Johnson, Nike employee No. 1, and "took what was basically an avocation, design, and turned it into my life.
