On December 12th, 2002, it finally happened; Jordan suited up against Pippen and the Blazers in the much-publicized match-up of former teammates. Seeing the two guard one another was a certain moment of sports surreality, and while it seemed the two would sorta go at each other in a friendly, semi-serious manner (like an All-Star Game), the competition was on from the get-go. Pippen and the Blazers wound up victorious that night, but the outcome was a second story to the first-ever showdown involving the most dominant teammates in sports history.

For that game, Jordan whipped out something extra special – the Air Jordan XI ‘Cool Grey’. The Cool Grey XI originally released in 2001, so for Jordan to bring those out long after the release was one of the best sneaker moments in Jordan’s career. Not many can recall Michael wearing non-OG colorways, but he actually wore several Retros when he was with the Wizards – XI being one of them! Scottie didn’t disappoint either, as he wore his Air Pippen 2 in a Black/Red PE colorway.
