Third-year NBA pro Quentin Richardson‘s stock was rising in 2002-2003; after posting an impressive season the season prior, scoring 13.3 points off the bench for the young Los Angeles Clippers, Q-Rich was picked up by Jordan Brand as one of NBA future stars. He starred in a commercial with fellow teammate Darius Miles, sporting the Air Jordan XVII in a display of a two-man-game harmony like the flowing bars of jazz music. Sneaker News has been keeping you on top of the Air Jordan PE game and Quentin Richardson’s name has come up more than a few times, and here’s another one to add to that list. This Air Jordan IX PE features a snazzy red patent leather mudguard/upper with a white full-grain leather upper and a royal blue trim on the tongue and heel. Q-Rich’s ‘3’ logo is stitched on the heel in blue, and the gum-like outsole even has a tinge of a varsity blue tone. Q-Rich has always been sought after for his 3-point acumen, but there’s no doubt his shoe game will leave you banging your head in jealousy. Check out the detailed gallery of these sick Jordans below and check out the auction from johnsbargains on eBay.
