Jordan Takes It Back to the Where It All Started
Jordan Brand had already become a household name, but on March 8, 1998, Michael Jordan pulled out the original colorway of the Air Jordan 1 for what was thought to be his last game at Madison Square Garden. The Bulls wore their alternate black uniform with red pinstripes, and MJ wore the white/red-black 1s to match. Maybe it was the shoes, as he forever etched his memory in the mind of Knicks fans by dropping 42 points and grabbing 8 rebounds in the Bulls’ victory. His actual last game ever in MSG may be the only event to have topped this one.
