Chris Paul’s time as a member of the New Orleans Hornets will be forever enshrined with his 2008 trip to the Conference Semis in which his squad took the Spurs to the brink of elimination. CP3 also had his fair share of Air Jordan retro player exclusives, the most infamous of which was this Air Jordan 8 PE. Featuring a home scheme, the pair dons a plethora of the added yellow accent color that the team rocked once in New Orleans as it’s found on the Jumpman tongue logo and ’23’ numbers on the strap as teal marks the silhouette throughout. And although the man now resides in LA as a perrenial All-Star, it’s always fun to think of the time when the upstart Hornets almost dethroned the champs before being disassembled into oblivion. Get a better look at this rare PE below and pick up the pair today via jonallon80 on eBay.
