A kid doesn't want to look inferior in a pair of LeBrons standing next to his friends that are wearing Jordans.
No people buy Jordans because they simply look better and have better designs

Because people want to be able to actually make J's (jumpers) and not take L's (in the Finals).

people don't wear Jordan's because they like MJ, young kids never even seen him play.
People do however wear Lebron's shoes because they like him.

Nowadays most people wear Jordans not because of Michael. You could say MJ has been forgotten in his own brand. And that's actually a good thing.
