Is Fat Joe stepping up to fill the recent void left in the wake of Dwyane Wade’s transfer to Li-Ning? Has Jordan Brand already shown their gratitude by sending him this early shipment of Air Jordan IX ‘Kilroy Pack’ goodies? Nope, although the Terror Squad’s been known to dominate at the Rucker so maybe Joey’s got a wicked jump shot we don’t know about.

This October 6th will mark the 19th Anniversary of Michael Jordan’s first retirement announcement. Coming just a few short weeks before the start of the ’93-’94 NBA Season, Michael’s decision made massive shockwaves throughout the world of sports, so while the league was losing a great one, the remaining twenty-seven NBA teams breathed a collective sigh of relief. Without MJ in the way, the chances of NBA Championship glory was up for grabs, and for two NBA seasons, that dream was realized. During Michael’s absence, Nike created the story of Johnny Kilroy – a false identity assumed by Michael as a way to get back onto an NBA Court. Jordan Brand pays tribute to Kilroy with the first release of the Air Jordan IX ‘Kilroy Pack’, but expect something creative and extra-special for the entire set of releases – all you need to do is follow @TheRealKilroy4 and check up on Sneaker News.

Johnny Kilroy joined Twitter just in time for the release of his very own Air Jordan IX colorway, which is something he didn’t have the opportunity to do upon bursting onto the scene back in the mid ’90s.  This Michael Jordan alter-ego continues to build his legend nearly two decades after His Airness’ first retirement, and this dope new color-up features personalized messages on the tongue and footbed along with the ‘PE’ number ’4′ on the heel badge.  We’ve known to expect these as the first ‘alias’ release for some time now, and they will finally be available for purchase next Saturday, October 6th at select JB retailers so be on the lookout and stay tuned for release info on the rest of the “Kilroy Pack” coming soon.

Two words: Employee Perks. Jordan Brand athlete Chris Paul recently showed off his entire collection of the Air Jordan IX ‘Kilroy Pack’, but that wasn’t all he got from Jordan Brand in this recent mass-shipment.

It certainly is nice to be one of Jordan Brand’s own, but you’ll have the opportunity to collect this Holiday 2012 stash of footwear for yourself once the first wave of releases begin in October. A full shot of everything CP3 copped is just below, so take a look and let us know what you’re looking forward to the most.
