Can you name the slim number of NBA squads Michael Jordan played for off the top of your head? Pretty easy task, right? Well if you believe the fictional web spun by the ‘Johnny Kilroy’ series of Air Jordan IX releases there are actually a few more than you think, with Mike secretly bouncing around to a number of other teams under various aliases. Calvin Bailey was one of them, the name also attached to this royal/yellow Air Jordan IX that should drop sometime in the coming months. Click through with us for the latest photos of the Air Jordan IX ‘Calvin Bailey’ and keep it locked on Sneaker News to find out when and where to purchase.

Yeah Michael Jordan dressed up as Johnny Kilroy in that old ad campaign, but there were also a good number of other alter egos that got a little less shine. Joining the ranks of Bentley Ellis and Calvin Bailey is Fontay Montana, who gets an Air Jordan IX with a creamsicle looking colorway quite reminiscent of this Darius Miles PE (no word on the affiliated team for the fictional character though). Stick with us after the jump for the full shot of this upcoming Air Jordan IX colorway and let us know in the comments below which pair from the wide ranging Air Jordan IX ‘Johnny Kilroy’ pack you prefer the most. As always, stick with Sneaker News for concrete release info on the Air Jordan IX ‘Fontay Montana’.

Air Jordan IX “Kilroy”

The ratio of upcoming Air Jordan IX colorways designed for Michael himself versus other ‘people’ is starting to look like a scene in Space Jam, as more new styles reveal their stories in advance of holiday release dates. The Air Jordan IX ‘Johnny Kilroy’ hearkens back to the 1993 Steve Martin TV spot in which the Swoosh supposed Mike might be up to his old tricks, under a new disguise. They remind us that His Airness had the talent to become the Ronnie Coleman of the NBA instead of ‘just’ a two-time three-peater, and will be joined by ‘Crawfish’ and ‘Calvin Bailey’ colorups (not to mention the Penny/Magic-esque ‘Photo Blues’) to thicken the plot of MJ’s first retired/baseball season. This one’s coming up first with an October 6th drop date and you can see more images below to tide you over.

The Air Jordan IX has already marked its territory for the Holiday 2012 season with the confirmed releases of the ‘Cool Grey’, ‘Olive’, ‘Kilroy’ capsule, and a few others. Time to make some room for yet another new Air Jordan IX colorway because we’re getting a look at yet another inclusion of the ‘Kilroy’ Pack – the Air Jordan IX ‘Calvin Bailey’; the Blue/Yellow colorway alludes to the fictional team ‘Gary’ that Calvin Bailey (one of Michael’s personas) played for during  the ‘retirement’ period, fitting right in with the ‘Crawfish’ concept and the Kilroy theme as a whole. Check out the images below and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more on the Air Jordan IX because there’s more on the way!

In less than two months, we will get reminded of one of the saddest moments in sports history – when Michael Jordan decided to hang up his jersey for good after conquering all that he sought after as an NBA professional. Not two years later, Jordan would return to the game of basketball, but his true love for the game was exemplified by Nike’s ‘Johnny Kilroy’ ad campaign and those ‘Kilroy Kicks Butt’ t-shirts. Hopefully those old-school tees will make a comeback alongside the Air Jordan IX ‘Johnny Kilroy’ on October 6th, but if you can’t wait to get these laced on your feet, on pair just popped up for sale from aznkevin888 on eBay.

Twenty years after his mysterious appearance, we find ourselves still searching for clues as to “Who is Johnny Kilroy?” A fictional superhero based on and played by Michael Jordan ‘endorsed’ the Air Jordan IX while MJ was busy with the Birmingham Barons, Kilroy was depicted in ads and even his own Upper Deck trading card as number ’4′ on the Chicago Bulls (a reference to the four-peat His Airness left hanging?), but has recently been linked to the ‘Crawfish’ theme of another upcoming AJ9. This Kilroy edition sticks with a traditional Chi-town palette, but its bold ‘reversed’ colorblocking makes for one of the most unique Nines to date. Have a closer look at some new images after the jump, let us know where these rank on your list of 2012 Air Jordan 9 Retros and stick with Sneaker News for updates as we approach the October 6th drop.

More Air Jordan IX goodies continue to unfold for the Holiday 2012 arrival date as we get a first look at yet another Retro+ design dubbed ‘Crawfish’. The colorway features a white and deep red upper with a Maize interior lining (which quite honestly, plays second fiddle to the quizzical ‘Crawfish’ embroidery on the inner face of the tongue), and based on the theme behind the ‘Johnny Kilroy’, the term Crawfish alludes to the fictional team that Jordan/Kilroy played for. We’ll keep you in file with this Holiday 2012 release of the Air Jordan IX ‘Crawfish’ as it develops, so take a look at the quick angles below and let us know what you think. Photos: theclosetcollectors
