It's a diamond that the company he represents uses for a logo.

That would be an "L" and A "J". Try it yourself, it is fun...

Because there was a NBA player from UNLV named Larry Johnson and his Converse shoe promotion had him dressed up as a grandma named grand-mama.

Same name.

Symbol that LJ does is Jay-Z's logo for the line of clothes LJ is a spokesman for. Soon to be banned by the NFL.

common sense, once they figure out that its blatant advertising for something that doesn't make Tagliabue any money.

The NFL is looking into it and will decide soon has been in several articles I've read.

Are you kidding? Hello McFly anyone home? The NFL is going to allow players to advertise after a TD? They are not getting a penny of that money. They don't even allow you to write a name on your sock.

Nope after this season it will be banned with a heavy fine to make it prohibitive to do.

It's a lack of creativity. LJ derserves is own nickname not some retread from the NBA.

Why do people call him El Jay?

Is that some quirky name thing like El Conquistador?
