Michael will tell you that there certainly is no place like ‘Home’. During the 1997 NBA Playoffs, Michael Jordan wore this colorway of the Air Jordan XII during the ‘Home’ games, and it only took him two games for Michael to get settled in – by dropping a double-nickel against the Washington Bullets (now Wizards). His Game 2 performance in the 1st round of the ’97 Playoffs is one of the most overlooked performances of his career, but youngsters Chris Webber, Juwan Howard, and Calbert Cheaney probably remember that game as well as any other. The Air Jordan XII ‘Playoffs’ has already been confirmed for an April 2012 release, which is rather fitting because the Game 2 double-nickel happened on April 27th, 1997. We’ve got a few new angles for you below, so take a look and let us know if these are a must-have for you. via SH.
