One of the perks of being a player-owner for the Washington Wizards in the early 2000s was that Michael Jordan was able to book the former MCI Center to host a brand new high school all-star game. The Jordan Brand Classic was an instant success, and celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, as well as the second straight in Charlotte after a run at Madison Square Garden. And just like 2011’s game at the Bobcats’ building, we can expect player exclusives from the Air Jordan franchise release in ‘east blue’ and ‘west red’ colorways – although this year the classic ‘red’ will be changed to ‘team orange’. The ‘Jordan Brand Classic’ Air Jordan 2012 Deluxe will outfit the next generation of roundball stars when the game tips off next Saturday, April 14th, but you can get your JBC PEs on Wednesday the 11th; will you be picking sides or choosing instead to collect both pairs?

the 2012s are a high quality shoe. they're getting little to no love on this blog. played in these for the first time the other day and didn't even think about the shoe. lightweight, comfy, supportive and good court grip. also, they look dope in the right color way. only the Tinker Hatfields look like a street shoe so far tho. Thank god for Nike ID
The high joints look like a serious ball shoe, might have to check these out once they hit the outlets
