Jordan Starts Label, Wins Name

11/26/1997 at 12:00 AM EST

Retired NBA star Michael Jordan tells PEOPLE that he is searching for "the next Erykah Badu," and believes he has found her in Jill Scott, a recording artist on his new label, Hidden Beach Recordings, which was launched in L.A. earlier this month . . . Meanwhile, in a Chicago courtroom on Thursday, Jordan won back the use of his name, which had been attached to a failed steakhouse chain. The judge also ruled that an exec of the eatery had materially damaged Jordan by saying that the basketball great's popularity had dwindled and he was no longer a restaurant draw.
