Over the weekend, The Naismith Memorial Hall Of Fame of Fame along with Jordan Brand unveiled a new exhibit detailing the magical moments of Michael Jordan’s legendary basketball career. The exhibit entitled ‘Become Legendary: The Story of Michael Jordan’ features a collection of photographs, videos, quotes, samples of footwear, apparel and a collection of artifacts which celebrate Jordan’s upcoming induction into the Hall of Fame.
Upon arrival, guests visiting the Hall will view an impressive 40-foot timeline detailing Jordan’s many achievements as a basketball player. The experience will begin with Jordan’s birth and guide visitors through his professional career, including his multiple NBA championships, MVP awards and Olympic Games triumphs. The exhibit also includes a video capturing Jordan’s impact during the Bulls’ championship years, entitled, “The Finals Moments.”
“Become Legendary: The Story of Michael Jordan will include six championship capsules encasing the rings presented to Jordan and his Chicago Bulls teammates to honor the titles from 1991-1993 and the 1996-1998 seasons, in addition to a collection of official NBA uniforms and a unique footwear display featuring the 24-year chronology of the AIR JORDAN sneaker. The shoes will be accompanied by an artistic collage of sketches presenting the evolution of the revolutionary shoe design known to all as AIR JORDAN where Jordan took a very personal involvement in creating each model.
The ‘Become Legendary: The Story of Michael Jordan’ will be on display at the Basketball Hall of Fame throughout 2009, including the weeks leading up to the enshrinement weekend of September 10-11-12th.
