Atlanta Hawks point guard Mike Bibby has been decked out in Air Jordan PEs since he succeeded White Chocolate as Sactown’s 1. He and JB (and Hawks, of course) teammate Joe Johnson have helped to resurrect this formerly woebegotten franchise, and you gotta wonder if the Jays have something to do with it. A-Town hadn’t made the playoffs since the lockout-shortened year after MJ retired, and not again until they pushed the 2008 NBA Champion Boston Celtics to 7 in the opening round.
Is it the shoes? Just ask Dwyane Wade, who you’ll see rocking an Air Jordan 16.5 after the jump as Bibby sails in for a layup in the True Red Air Jordan XIII Lows from back in 2005. Interestingly enough, Johnson is in the background of the same image wearing a white/navy AJXII with red ‘JUMPMAN’ insets, so be sure to peep more after the jump.
