A Kickstarter to Create an Encyclopedia of Air Jordans by Jay Lawrence

Air Jordan signatures have been hitting retail shelves for nearly 30 years and it’s easy to get lost in the wave of retros and new school releases to the point where it’s enough to make your head spin. That’s why Jay Lawrence took to Kickstarter in search of help to fund his Encyclopedia of Air Jordans book. His goal is simple: to create the first and only hardcover book dedicated to Air Jordan sneakers numbered 1-29 in a beautiful 10 x 8 inch size displaying photos, price guides and comprehensive info on each release. We commend his efforts and it’s definitely worth your time to check out a preview of all the hard work put in. Hit the click for a few photos and head to Kickstarter to donate to the project today.

Michael Jordan Accepts ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Michael Jordan Accepts ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is sweeping the country right now in an attempt to raise awareness and to help find an eventual cure for Lou Gerhrig’s disease. The thought process behind it is simple – you have 24 hours to respond to the challenger and either donate money to the charity to help fund research for motor neurone disease or dump a bucket full of ice on your head. Michael Jordan was recently challenged by none other than Jordan Brand Athlete Derek Jeter, and the boss responded in a big way. He nominated Phil Jackson and all of his Dream Team teammates to donate money and feel the rush of cold water over their heads. And considering Mike’s had ice running through his veins after all those clutch career moments, we doubt he minded feeling the cold water for a few moments. Watch the video after the jump.

A Look at Michael Jordan’s 23 Game Winning Shots

August 7th, 2014 By

A Look at Michael Jordans 23 Game Winning Shots

From the shot over Ehlo to just The Shot, Michael Jordan definitely had the clutch gene. Yesterday we were treated to a play-by-play comparison of Kobe Bryant imitating Michael Jordan’s moves. The resemblance was a little spooky and irrefutable evidence that Michael made a lasting impact on some of the game’s other greatest players. Like Michael, Kobe’s had his fair share of buzzer beaters and game sealing shots, but there’s nothing like the original. Michael Jordan had 23 of them throughout his 15 year career. Is it a coincidence that it coincided with his jersey number (imagine if he had stuck with 45 for the remainder of his career, he might’ve just had to make a few games closer than they needed to be). Hit the click to watch the full montage of Mike’s clutch gene and let us know which shot was your favorite in the comments section.

Kawhi Leonard Beats Michael Jordan in a Game of Hot Shot

Kawhi Leonard Beats Michael Jordan in a Game of Hot Shot

Kawhi Leonard became the first Jordan Brand Athlete to take home the NBA Finals MVP trophy since the man that coined the brand in this year’s Finals. This award will most likely come with a more featured role for the Spurs up and comer in the Jumpman’s lineup, and he already is starting to make appearances at the request of the man himself. During Michael Jordan’s summer camp, Kawhi came out to play a game of Hot Shot, teaming up with a camper to face off against Michael. While Leonard opted for a pair of what looks to be the debut colorway of the Air Jordan XX9, Mike kept things rather casual in the black and white Jordan Future. Watch the video below.

Michael Jordan VS Kobe Bryant – Identical Plays Comparison

Michael Jordan VS Kobe Bryant   Identical Plays Comparison

The influence Michael Jordan’s game had on Kobe Bryant is well-documented. Whether it be a young Kobe giddy with excitement trying to guard MJ during his first NBA All-Star Game or switching his number to one that was just one higher than Mike’s infamous 23, the competition between the two has always been instigated by Bryant. But could there be a Kobe Bryant without a Michael Jordan? Youtuber Youssef Hannoun recently did a play by play comparison of Kobe imitating Jordan’s moves to the point where it’s rather eerie. Check out the full video (as well as parts 1 and 2) after the click.

Michael Jordan Drains 11 Shots in a Row at Basketball Camp

You know this story. Michael Jordan shows up in a basketball camp setting and seemingly puts on a clinic despite being in his more formidable years and a decade removed from lacing up his signature sneakers on the hardwood. There was the OJ Mayo incident, dunking as a 50 year old, and know he can boast that he simply doesn’t miss wide open shots. At his summer basketball camp he showcased his perfect form, muscle memory still intact as he went around to 11 different spots on the floor and made every shot, ending with a free throw that almost rolled out.

Michael Jordan OK with LeBron Switching Back to No.23

Michael Jordan OK with LeBron Switching Back to No.23

You may have already heard, but LeBron James is heading back to Cleveland. The biggest sports story of the summer doesn’t even involve a game actually being played, but instead leads to more and more speculation. The latest LeBron speculation had to do with his jersey number. While the current King of the NBA used to wear Michael Jordan’s number 23, he went on record before switching to the Heat letting everyone know that he thinks it deserved a league wide retirement. Apparently James changed his mind because he’ll don the number once again as a Cav for nostalgia’s sake. Michael Jordan recently spoke on the matter by saying, “I’m cool with it. I don’t own a number.” Do you think Mike’s jersey is still in need of a league wide retirement? Let us know in the comments section.

Michael Jordan’s Record $33 Million 1997 Bulls Contract Goes to Auction

Michael Jordans Record $33 Million 1997 Bulls Contract Goes to Auction

Michael Jordan set a number of records in the NBA, but one that the business man in MJ is probably most proud of is garnering the most expensive contract in the league’s history – a record that still stands today. During the 1997-1998 season, Mike took home $33 million from one season of basketball, one that proved worth it as the Chicago Bulls brought home their 6th championship. The original contract is signed by Michael Jordan and the former Bulls general manager in Jerry Krause. According to ESPN, if you factor in inflation, that $33 million MJ made would be worth upwards of $49 million today. Hit the click for more info on this legendary piece of paper and head over to Heritage Auctions to start your bidding (that is if you have about $25,000 laying around).
