There is no better way to do an overview then to bring in the old with the new. With that being said, I wanted to bring a nostalgic look on an overview and a comparison of the Jordan Jumpman Team II Retro and the original shoe that was released back in 1998.   There were …

Happy 44th Birthday Eddie Jones!

Eddie Jones? Who is he? For some of you that are not familiar, Eddie Jones was one of the first Brand Jordan athletes to ever have a signature shoe (along with Vin Baker). I say Brand Jordan instead of Jordan Brand is because the company was first coming into its own entity and wanted to …

Kobe Bryant's Sneaker Legacy

A Look Back At Kobe’s Sneaker Legacy

With nearly 19 years in the league we’d like to wish the “Black Mamba,” a nickname he created, a happy 37th birthday. We can’t deny the impact that Kobe Bryant has had on us as an athlete. He has also had an enormous impact on us with the kicks he’s worn on and off the court. Initially …

Bulls vs Sonics 1996 NBA Finals

We all relish the fact that Chicago won a record 72 games in the 95-96 season, but let’s not forget the Bulls 1996 NBA Finals. We loved the fact that Michael Jordan was finally back in his old modest basketball self–while still in baseball condition and not basketball condition. The Bulls had suffered a loss …

Happy 37th Birthday Mike Bibby

Mike Bibby. What can you say about the former Wildcat? Well, he’s definitely one guy with the most awesome Jordan Brand PEs to date. More importantly, it’s Mike Bibby’s birthday.

Michael Jordan’s Final NBA Game

This time it was the final goodbye. The last time we’ll see Michael Jordan and his signature tongue wagging fade-away. It was on the night of April 16th, 2003, the end of an era. Suffice to say, after multiple retirements, I was kind of on edge with it again, but being at the age of …

The “Double-Nickel” Game – Michael Jordan’s Come Back at MSG

When you take 18 months off to play baseball, you can’t just assume that you have the overall shape to just come in and shoot hoops do you? Don’t tell that to Michael Jordan. With the NBA season half-way passed, the only message that mattered was “I’m Back.”  This was the message Michael Jordan relayed when …

Happy 35th Birthday to Jamal Crawford, aka “J.Crossover”

Whether it be the Bulls, Knicks, Hawks, Warriors, Blazers or even now the Clippers, Jamal Crawford always brought his ‘A’ game. The native Seattle baller was one of the highly touted players recruited out of high school, Rainier Beach, and chose to become a Michigan Wolverine. After about a year, J.Crossover jumped into the league …

Happy 42nd Birthday Michael Finley.

What do we know about Michael Finley? He played 15 seasons in the NBA? He was one of the high-flyers in the league, including his participation in 2 NBA Slam Dunk contests? He was part of the original Team Jordan members? Or was his PE (Player Edition) kicks game on point? What we do know is …
