8. Richard Hamilton
Before the Bobcats were earning endorsements from Jordan, Richard Hamilton was playing his way into Js in Washington. Rip reaped the early benefits of Michael’s involvement with the Wizards, getting picked up with JB early on and getting seeded retros such as the “Cool Grey” 11s prior to launch date. While Bulls like Ron Harper, Scottie Pippen, and others occasionally laced up Air Jordans, Hamilton was the first and only active teammate of MJ to be signed under his brand umbrella.
