Sneaker News: Was It The Shoes? continues with another memorable moment in Michael’s career, but this one carries an air of infamy rather than one of legend. We’ve covered Michael’s 55-point outburst against the Knicks and his 3-point barrage in the ’92 Finals, and even that quirky moment with the ’12’ jersey resulted in one of Michael’s best games of his career. Tonight, we’ll focus on one of the not-so-MJ moments – a head-scratching blunder that unfortunately happened on one of the most televised games of the NBA Season – the All-Star Game. Check out this latest ‘Was It The Shoes?’ moment below and get filled in on this piece of Jordan history!

‘Michael Jordan announces comeback’ was really just a recycled headline from ’95, when MJ informed the public of his intent to trade in his threads for a brand-new NBA jersey for the second time in his career. Just about eleven years ago, Michael announced his intent to move from Front Office to player bench and vowed to donate his entire salary as a Washington Wizards player toward a relief effort for the victims of the 9/11 attacks; Michael didn’t really need the money, but his love for the game of basketball urged him to suit up, and as they say, get too close to the fire and you might get burned!

The much-anticipated second come-back couldn’t have started on a bigger stage; Michael would don his first non-Bulls uniform in an NBA regular season game in front of a Madison Square Garden crowd, but it wasn’t just MSG that brought out the big crowds; wherever Michael played that season, every seat was filled from courtside to nosebleed, and whatever price was being charged at the box-office was worth it to see the 38-year-old light-up the highlights.

While the Wizards didn’t really live up to the 90’s Bulls standards in the Win-Loss column, Jordan was still Jordan; at the age of 38, Michael averaged 25.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 5.3 assists at the All-Star break – a stat-line that earned him a starting position among the NBA’s best of that era. Jordan’s performance during the game wasn’t one of his best – a mere eight points on 4-of-13 shooting – and his certainly highlighted by one particular play in the first quarter that remains as one of the most memorable All-Star Game moments in NBA history.

I wonder what would have happen Without the Gaps in Jordans Career. Like damn no first retirement or second... Straight career all the way up to his 30's? I could see at least 8 Rings in total with that. Most likely 7.

I think it was more about the age than the shoes at that point in time
