The general consensus is that Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time. In this context it seems so unlikely that he could have ever been left off the varsity squad, but this is also why His Airness’ rise to immortality is so inspiring. MJ worked hard to make sure nothing like that would ever happen again and he parlayed his successes at Wilmington’s Laney High School into a full ride at UNC. This ‘Laney’ Air Jordan V Retro captures Mikes formative years in a colorway that was the first ever Retro+ for the AJV, back in 2000. November 2nd will be the first time the Laneys are re-released, so the demand is sure to be high and you can see the official Jordan Brand photo below while we wait for the release date.
