Richard Hamilton is one of a few players left in the NBA active during Michael Jordan’s tenure with the Washington Wizards, and one of only three to have played with him there (winning NCAA and NBA championships is also quite rare). Rip’s Jumpman connection goes back even further to his days at UConn (and presumably all the way back to Coatesville). So while it might be a bit easier for him to pull a few strings, he’s still just like us in being proud of new pairs. Here we see the Chicago sharpshooter showing off two fresh Air Jordan 1 Retro High OGs, the forthcoming ‘Grape’ Vs and a new color of the Retro 1 ’93 that despite photo filters appears to be an orange-laced silvery style. Hamilton also got playful in matching a slightly older release in the ‘Chicago’ Xs to the Bulls logo, so check out all these shots below and let us know which of these you also copped.

Do they really count as "Pick-Ups" if they were delivered to your front door, directly from Jordan Brand, FOR FREE???
Cool for Rip, but for me I'm like fuc JB sometimes. He makes loyal JB consumers and fans jump through hoops to get most of his releases, and then only selling those blk/gld patent 1's at only a few locations!!! BS
@BiscoeTheBoss Well.... if you call being good at basketball growing up and making your dreams come true by winning a champinship on the collegiate level and NBA level and standing out as one of the most skilled shooters in the game today so that you can get signed by the G.O.A.T.'s sneaker brand....then yes it's the ultimate PICK-UP !! "sometimes its not hating it's just true"
@MrNolimit23 They arent ogs
@kicks4life13 oh cmon man!
I'm not knocking Rip's achievements by any means, I'm just not surprised that a Jordan Brand athlete has the latest and upcoming releases! I would rather they show some of his older stuff that's not seen or soon to be seen in every neighborhood in America!
