1996 – Air Jordan XI ‘Columbia’ – Late into the 1995 season, Michael Jordan returned to the NBA after an 18-month absence. After the Bulls were knocked out of the Playoffs by the Orlando Magic, many questioned Michael’s abilities and perceived his skills to have diminished after his long hiatus from the spot. Michael bounced back in the following season by leading the Bulls to a record 72 wins while earning his second All-Star Game MVP trophy after leading the East to a victory.
1997 – Air Jordan XII ‘Playoffs’ – The man can do it all. Michael Jordan tallied the first ever triple-double in NBA All-Star Game history, totaling 14 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists. He conceded scoring duties to sharpshooting Glen Rice, who set records himself by scoring the most points in a quarter (20) and half (24).
