1992 – Air Jordan VII ‘Bordeaux’ – Air Jordans at the All-Star Game took an interesting turn in 1992, as Michael debuted the ‘Bordeaux’ colorway of the Air Jordan VII. It would be the first non-Bulls colorway that Michael would wear to the February game, setting a personal trend of sneaker choices for the two following All-Star appearances.
1993 – Air Jordan VIII ‘Aqua’ – Rumors had been swirling around that Michael was no longer challenged by the game of basketball. Some called the ’93 affair his final appearance alongside his superstar pals. Luckily for us, Michael would appear in five more All-Star games after, but he kept the suspense going regardless of the rumors and speculation. During the ’93 game, Michael wore the ‘Aqua’ colorway of the Air Jordan VIII while leading all scorers with 30 points; had the East been victorious, Michael would have likely earned the MVP award, but that title was shared by West representatives and home-town teammates Karl Malone and John Stockton.
