It’s no secret that the Air Jordan ‘History Of Flight’ samples have started to flood the online re-selling market, so for every sick pair of Air Jordans we show you, let’s pinpoint some of Michael’s greatest moments that have contributed to his ‘history’. While Michael didn’t win his first NBA Championship until 1991, he came awfully close in 1990 when the Bulls lost a close seven-game series to the eventual champion Detroit Pistons. Michael remained poised and calm after losing Game 7 and addressed some of the improvements that the team could make during the offseason, and his commitment paid off as he, not Isiah Thomas, went on to the NBA Finals the following year and began the first of an eventual six-championship dynasty. While it is impossible to call any Air Jordan the best of all-time, the Air Jordan V swims in the upper tier for a number of reasons – the over-sized reflective silver tongue, the introduction of the translucent outsole, and the implementation of a lace-lock to name a few. We’ve got a detailed viewing of this rare Air Jordan sample after the jump so take a look and check out the listing from depeche23mode on eBay.
