The Sneaker News “Was It The Shoes?” features tonight with another dissection of Michael’s most memorable moments of his career. We’ve covered his All-Star Game triumps and blunders as well as unnerving scoring outputs, but no moment is as defining as this – winning his first NBA Championship. This occurred in 1991 of course, but if we were to select one span of seconds, it would have to his amazing Game 2 feat in which he performed a jaw-dropping aerial assult on the Lakers. More of Was It The Shoes? is right ahead, so give it a read!

It was June 3rd, 1990, and the Bulls had just lost to the Detroit Pistons in a physical seven-game series for the Eastern Conference Finals. Michael, with an eerie poise, spoke with Pat O’Brien after the game and said “We fought hard. They were the better team.” It was tough for Michael to utter those words, considering he’s fiercely competitive and just saw one of his biggest rivals in Isiah Thomas go on to another NBA Finals platform, but Michael’s professionalism and ability to orate without frustration and disappointment shined through once again. He accepted the fact that it wasn’t his time to shine – yet.

Fast-forward to one year later, when Michael was crowned the league MVP title for the second time in his career and once again met the Pistons in the Playoffs. This time around, Michael and the Bulls gave no elbow room to Detroit, sweeping them with complete dominance and solidifying their first-ever NBA Finals appearance. They would face the power-house Los Angeles Lakers, who themselves barreled right through the Rockets, Warriors, and Blazers en route to yet another NBA Finals appearance. Would the jitters of the big lights be too much for Michael and the Bulls to overcome? A quick Game 1 loss at Home in Chicago hinted at perhaps another postseason disappointment.

The OG's Had both Nubuck & Durabuck on the heel with 3M on throughout the Upper. Why Can't JB give us these anymore? I know bc they would charge $250 for those exact materials.
