There’s no doubt that Ray Allen is the current king of player exclusives as far as the Miami Heat squad is concerned, but there have plenty of folks over the years down in South Beach getting hooked up with special red and white versions. Eddie Jones is one of those folks, as evidenced yet again by this Air Jordan XIII with a ‘home’ scheme to it that was produced back in 2004.

The Air Jordan XIII is a sneaker that’s actually flirted with bringing player exclusive pairs to the retail realm via that immediate sellout Air Jordan XIII ‘Ray Allen’ pair that hit limited shelves in 2011. One that’s staying on the exclusive side for now, and probably forever as we can’t imagine the Jordan Brand team bringing out a random pair from nearly a decade ago back out, is this Air Jordan XIII for Michael Finley. Fortunately you can still own the sneakers, and a game-worn, autographed pair at that. See the Air Jordan XIII Michael Finley Mavs PE after the jump and then buy yours from trenchkicks on eBay.

Among the Jordan Brand athletes currently in the league, Jared Jeffries is one of a handful who actually spent time on a team with Michael Jordan as the two were both with the Washington Wizards in the early part of the 2000s. Jeffries has maintained a Jordan connection ever since, one maintained via his countless player exclusives. This pair of the Air Jordan XIII is one of those, a pair from around 2004 that sports his number on the tongue rather than any specific name callout. See the game-worn, autographed Air Jordan XIII player exclusive after the jump and bid on this rare sneaker now from trenchkicks on eBay.

Origin of a Nickname: Air Jordan XIII “He Got Game”

March 11th, 2013 by | 26 comments

air jordan xiii he got game origin Origin of a Nickname: Air Jordan XIII He Got Game

For as long as we can remember, sneaker releases have been accompanied by catchy nicknames to the point where these monikers are now the accepted terms in identifying the shoes. There are the newer terms to the sneaker vocabulary, like ‘South Beach’ from the LeBron series or ‘Grinch’ on the Kobe, but there are those that have been long-lasting like ‘He Got Game’, which has been in heavy and exclusive use for the upcoming Air Jordan XIII release. For that release in particular, the nickname has been around since the Spike Lee film first released in 1998 – a film that might be older than some of the sneakerheads who are planning to buy the shoes on the March 16th release date.

This Air Jordan XIII colorway originally released in 1997 and was actually the only Air Jordan XIII colorway to release that year (all other original colorways dropped in 1998). In the movie, Jake Shuttlesworth (played by Denzel Washington), a prison inmate, gets sent on a mission to convince the convict’s son, a star High School basketball player, to play for the warden’s alma mater in exchange for a shorter sentence. One iconic scene of the film features Jake shopping for a pair of kicks, and without hesitation, he requests the new Air Jordans to which he is presented with the Air Jordan XIII. From then on this colorway adopted the ‘He Got Game’ nickname; the trend resurfaced when the shoes retroed for the first time in 2008, and picked up yet again when the release was confirmed for 2013.

There are a few scenes in the film in which the sneakers as a whole take center stage, like when his son Jesus (played by Ray Allen) points them out, and when Jake and Jesus battle in one last game of one-on-one. The movie itself is a star-studded line-up of actors, NBA stars, and iconic kicks, so there’s no doubt that ‘He Got Game’ is among the must-watch films for sneaker hobbyists. Check below for these scenes and if there’s a shoe nickname you’re not quite sure of, drop a comment with a request and it might get featured on the next segment of Origins of a Nickname.
