Every basketball player’s dream is to hit the last shot in the closing seconds of the game. However, we have only witnessed a handful of players that possess the ability to show up time after time in closing seconds. You would be kidding yourself if His Airness was not at the top of your “clutch performers” list of all time. Our “This Day In Sneaker History” columns highlights one of MJ’s most memorable, clutch moments in the history of his career, let alone the NBA. One June 14, 1998, Michael Jordan hit one of, if not the most important mid-range jump shots of his career while wearing the Air Jordan XIV Black/Black-Varsity Red. Because of this moment, we now refer to this shoe as the “Last Shot” Air Jordan 14. It is easily one of the more popular and most sought-after Air Jordan 14 colorways to date thanks to the performances Jordan had in this shoe. We’re sure many Jordan heads, including Byron Russell, has a pair of these laying around in the closet somewhere. Was this Michael’s best moment in the NBA?
