We know Michael Jordan tried his hand in baseball during his first retirement, but did he have another court-sport in mind? Here’s a look at a rare hybrid sample combining the upper of a Nike Tennis trainer and the bottom sole of the Air Jordan X. This sample is dates back to 1997, which is well after Jordan’s initial return to the game, but people over at the Beaverton labs had something in mind when this sample was made (or someone must have been really, really bored). Take a look at this rare Nike Tennis x Air Jordan X sample after the jump and let us know how you think Michael Jordan would have done in tennis. Pete Sampras vs. Michael Jordan in tennis would’ve been the same as Michael Jordan vs. the entire league in basketball, right?
