Temple alumni Eddie Jones was one of the earlier NBA stars to be added to the newly created Jordan Brand team of athletes, joining a group of budding NBA stars that would hopefully represent the elite level of performance set by Michael Jordan. Eddie was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers, forming a young and energetic backcourt with Nick Van Exel and beginning a new winning era for Lakers basketball. Unfortunately, Eddie wasn’t around long enough to reap the benefits of a Laker three-peat, but he still continued to be one of the more prolific scoring shooting-guards in the NBA, all while wearing some Jordan Brand footwear like this Air Jordan XIV Player Exclusive. This particular edition was made for EJ when he was with the Memphis Grizzlies, which occurred during the same time the Air Jordan XIV was re-issued.
