When Michael returned to the NBA after his first retirement, he found it necessary to tweak his game just a little bit to compensate for the slight (we emphasize ‘slight’) diminishing of his vertical and the increased intensity of opponent defense. The ‘Fadeaway’ became more than just a part of his game, but his signature mid-range power move that has become one of the most imitated mannerisms in all of sports. The ‘fade’ is brought on to the Air Jordan XII, as JGoods, a name that you’ve heard more than few times on Sneaker News, transformed the Air Jordan XII ‘Rising Sun’ by using a 15-color hand-mized black-to-white gradient on the upper. The guy’s got some steady hands (like Michael), so check out this sweet Air Jordan custom after the jump and let us know what you think. via paintorthread.
