Family influence and guidance assumes a major role in shaping the career trajectory of a young player, but no player in perhaps the history of sports has had a personal tragedy make a direct impact in a player’s career than it has on Michael Jordan. The sudden death of his father, James R. Jordan, in July of 1993 was a direct contribution to Michael’s decision to retire in October of that year, and his triumph on Father’s Day of 1996 coerced one of the most heart-breaking emotional responses to victory we’ve ever seen. Michael’s fourth NBA Championship on Father’s Day – Was It The Shoes, or the work of a higher power?

Michael Jordan’s First Game Against Scottie Pippen

was it the shoes jordan vs pippen Michael Jordans First Game Against Scottie Pippen

For as long as we can remember, Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen were a “Batman and Robin” partnership – without the tragedy, power struggles, character turns, etc.. Together, they won six NBA Championships, played in five NBA All-Star Games, and won an Olympic Gold Medal – essentially creating an unstoppable one-two punch that was oft-duplicated without nearly the same amount of success. Both players embarked on different journeys once they parted from the Bulls in the Summer of ’98, and although Pippen’s experienced life with Jordan in ’94 and most of ’95, seeing Pippen and Jordan go against in one another was a sight to be seen – and certainly one of the most anticipated sporting events once Jordan made his Wizards comeback in 2001. Re-live this classic memory in Michael’s career in tonight’s Sneaker News: Was It The Shoes? and check out what Jordan was wearing on the night of their first match-up!

michael jordan career high 69 points Michael Jordan Scores Career High 69 Points

Michael Jordan was a nightmare for pretty much every other team that wasn’t in Chicago – particularly the teams that were aligned in the Central Division. The Cleveland Cavaliers probably got the worst of Jordan’s wrath, particularly during the late 80′s and early 90′s; it’s not that the Cavs were a bad team – in fact, they were one of the better teams in the league – but Jordan just had their number in every which way possible. With that said, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that Michael’s career high for scoring in a single game came against the Cavs, so enjoy tonight’s Sneaker News: Was It The Shoes? piece and find out more about this memorable moment in Jordan’s career.

Sneaker News: Was It The Shoes? has focused on the many great shots and scoring outputs Michael has produced over his career, but Jordan certainly was not a one-trick pony. Sure, he was the greatest scorer of all-time, but he’s got top-notch defense that earned him plenty of accolades and for a man who draws so much of the attention of the opposing defense, his passing was as much of a dangerous weapon as his shooting touch was. One pass, in particular, stands out the most; it’s perhaps the reason why the Chicago Bulls was able to win a second-straight NBA Title after MJ made his come-back. Read on for tonight’s Was It The Shoes? feature and let us know if this pass is one of Michael’s greatest career highlights.

Michael Jordan seems to agree, as he’s brought “it” every time he’s stepped foot on the Garden floor. We already covered the ‘Double Nickel’ in a previous Sneaker News: Was It The Shoes? segment, but let’s take a stroll back in time to another instance of Jordan’s MSG travels.
