Thirteen All-Star Game appearances, three All-Star Game MVP awards. Michael was without question the baller of ballers during the February classic, starting at the young age of 21 in his rookie year all the way to age 39 during his final season with the Washington Wizards. Throughout those thirteen All-Star Game appearances, Michael has been at the center of attention, whether it be for his magnificent displays of dominance (dropping 40 points in ’88), or his not-Top Ten moments (clunking a dunk attempt off the back of the rim). Check out this nice retrospective of all of Michael Jordan’s All-Star Game Air Jordans and the highlights from each appearance, and be sure to vote for your favorite All-Star game kicks at the very end!

1985 – Air Jordan 1 ‘Red/White/Black’ – Michael Jordan’s first All-Star Game appearance would not go smoothly; Isiah Thomas and a group of other Eastern Conference All-Stars allegedly ‘froze out’ Michael in the game by not passing him the ball. Isiah Thomas refuted the accusations of the attempted ‘black-balling’, but the media continued to play up the story and helped build one of the most bitter rivalries in NBA history.

1987 – Air Jordan II ‘White/Red/Black’ – After missing the ’86 game due to injury, Michael returned to the All-Star Game one night after winning the 1987 NBA Slam Dunk Contest. The Eastern Conference would go on to lose the game to the West in overtime. Michael played just 24 minutes throughout the extended game, despite garnering the most votes in the entire league.
