It may not be 55 points on the Knicks on national TV but Michael Jordan can still dominate a basketball court. The Chicago Bulls legend was caught balling on camera today in the Bahamas, dropping one of his patented jumpers in a pickup basketball game with none other than New England Patriots champion Tom Brady and PGA Tour star Keegan Bradley.

Michael Jordan Canned His 1st Comeback Buzzer Beater 20 Years Ago Today

March 25th, 2015 By

Today marks 20 years to the day that Michael Jordan hit one of his patented buzzer-beaters – a full-length dribble and pull-up jumper as time expired to beat the Atlanta Hawks on the road, 99-98. It was only Jordan’s fourth game in his 1995 comeback campaign, and second Bulls win of that short stretch. Jordan finished with 32 points, his first 30+ point game since returning on March 19, 1995 against the Pacers. Definitely a highlight game for the Air Jordan 10 “Chicago,” which re-releases this Saturday, March 28 – the date of MJ’s 55-point binge in New York against the Knicks.

Watch Air Jordan’s game-winner over Atlanta below and share your memories of Mike’s comeback in the comments.

Vintage Gear: 1992 Air Jordan – Hare Jordan “What’s Up Jock?” T-Shirt

March 23rd, 2015 By

Jordans Daily “Vintage Gear” returns with a look straight out of 1992 with the Nike Air Jordan “What’s Up Jock?” t-shirt. In the wake of the first Hare Jordan commercial, which debuted on February 9, 1992 during the NBA All-Star Game, Nike issued quite a few different t-shirts featuring Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny in their Air Jordan VIIs (like these). Bugs’ riff off his famous “What’s up, Doc?” one-liner found its way onto this shirt and others as Nike and Warner Brothers synced their marketing in near flawless execution. Kids loved the campaign and merch for the meshing of their favorite athlete with Bugs, while teenagers and adults dug it for the coolness and even novelty factor. That’s a huge reason why Jordan Brand is reintroducing a “Hare Jordan” collection for 2015, the 23rd anniversary of the beloved original run, including the Jordan 7 “Hares” on May 16.

With today marking 20 years since Michael Jordan’s “I’m back” NBA return, Chicago Bulls legend Scottie Pippen decided to wax nostalgic on Twitter this evening.

So far Pip has touched on everything from Jordan’s 1993 retirement – “I’ll always remember how shocked we were” – to MJ’s baseball hiatus – “We didn’t talk all that often” – to the 1995 playoff loss to Orlando – “He took it hard” – and many more insights.

Between 1990 and 1998, Jordan and Pippen led the Bulls to six NBA titles in eight seasons, forming perhaps the greatest one-two punch in sports history.
