Jeremy Lin’s continued excellence has been perfectly timed with Carmelo Anthony currently out nursing an injury, both for the once struggling New York Knicks and Melo’s sneaker backers.  Lin’s not a Jordan Brand athlete, but all the attention on the orange and blue (and black) means that this upcoming Air Jordan IV release is sure to get its fair share of ‘Linsanity’-laden references in the sneaker blogosphere.  But despite Michael Jordan coming up in conversation this week as we’re reminded that he’s the most prolific scorer in the history of basketball at Madison Square Garden, a recent look-see event saw Jordan Brand unveil them with a more logical theme.  The Air Jordan IV ‘Cavs is a reminder that before Lin sent Floyd Mayweather a rather public ‘Stick to boxing’ tweet at Air Canada Centre last night, MJ took a game winning jumper of his own to crush Craig Ehlo and the 1989 Cleveland Cavaliers, ending the Bulls’ opening round upset of the three-seed in spectacular fashion.  We’ve seen a variety of Cavs and Knicks colorways on a select few Air Jordans including some spectacular PEs over the years, but is this the best one to hit retail yet?  Let us know what you think about the corrected inspiration and stick with Sneaker News for the ‘Cavs’ Air Jordan IV release date.  via rstor
