Even though Michael Jordan played for the rival Bulls, the New York Knicks are inevitably tied to MJ’s legacy. The 90s rivals met Chicago in the playoffs a handful of times and were victim to Mike’s infamous Double Nickel game that saw him post 55 points to solidify his return to the NBA after his first retirement. There’s also that Spike Lee connection too, as Jordan Brand enlisted the die-hard Knicks fan to direct the now legendary commercials featuring his Mars Blackmon character. The kids are getting an exclusive Air Jordan 4 tomorrow that resembles the Knickerbockers’ color scheme, as a combination of Deep Royal Blue and Hyper Orange land in accents on a supple white leather base and nubuck Wolf Grey toecap. It’s a unique look that’s rather subdued for a kids-centric release and has us wishing a full family size run would be available. See if you can find the pair right now on eBay.
