He wanted the game really bad, and wouldn’t let any sickness get in the way of his Chicago Bulls team and their chances at another NBA championship. It was Game 5 against the Jazz back in 1997 where we would learn of Michael Jordan’s stricken flu-like symptoms (likely caused by that of food poisoning) and witness greatness unfold.
Although seen in retro form back in 2009, the Air Jordan XII (12) that Michael Jordan wore during the game and eventually signed over to a lucky ball boy will soon make its way to auction. Why would this “ball boy” get rid of the shoes? No one knows, but more importantly, they will likely land in the hands of the highest bidder. Could this be you?
