What would compel a basketball geek to compare Goran Dragic and Mickael Pietrus, other than in discussion of their brief tenure together as Phoenix Suns? Aside from the sheer nerdy joy of namechecking two of the NBA’s lesser known European stars, one might see Dragic’s 2010 playoff performance to Pietrus’ campaign the year prior in that both guards stepped up to contribute significantly to their team’s upset victory, only to be stopped short of glory by Kobe Bryant’s back-to-back championships. But one thing Pietrus has that Dragic can’t claim, aside from a PHX zipcode, is a history with Jordan Brand; one that, though short, resulted in a couple memorable player exclusive Jays.
During the 2007 postseason where Pietrus’ Golden State Warriors had everybody believing Dirk Nowitzki might never get it done, MP rocked these Air Jordan V exclusives that look one heckuva lot like Ray Allen’s Sonics ‘Away’ edition. Unlike Ray, though, who continues to break records and defy father time while racking up more and more PEs, Pietrus has long since departed the Jumpman in favor of Chinese brand Peak. Could that possibly mean that the rarity of these sneakers means they’re worth more than the equivalent ‘Sugar’ Ray edition? Perhaps the signature on this game-worn edition puts things in a new perspective, but does it mean you’d bid on these if they popped up on eBay? Unfortunately for those who answered ‘yes’, these are a look-but-don’t-touch, so click through and let us know what you think about some of these more obscure Air Jordan PEs. via Phase2
