The Sneaker News “Was It The Shoes?” features tonight with another dissection of Michael’s most memorable moments of his career.

With the story of the ‘Kilroy’-style Air Jordan IX releases being such a hot topic, let’s take a look back at the highest point of Michael’s career right before that event – the completion of the first NBA Championship Three-Peat since the Boston Celtics did it in 1966 (the Lakers would complete another in 2002).

Read up on the 1993 NBA Finals and the Chicago Bulls’ first Three-Peat for the latest Was It The Shoes? below and let us know if you remember this historic MJ event of the 90′s!
