A young Richard Hamilton played a year alongside Michael Jordan before Mike decided he needed a ‘veteran scorer’ in Jerry Stackhouse and traded Rip away. He even trash-talked Hamilton during practice, infamously saying that he wouldn’t be good enough to play in Air Jordans. Something must have changed along the way though, because Mike ended up seeding Richard some rare Jordan Brand offerings throughout the rest of his career. Today we get a look at this crazy Jordan 11 Pistons PE featuring the Detroit basketball team’s official colors in a unique twist. The Cordura mesh upper is replaced with royal blue leather, the Jumpman gets red stitching, and the patent leather mudguard receives a clean all white finish. Rip said that if he won the $430 million power ball, he’d give all of his followers this exclusive Jordan 11. Apparently the $110 million he made during his career in NBA salary wouldn’t be enough to convince Jordan Brand to release these.
