We would like to take a moment to wish Michael Jordan, the greatest basketball player of all time, a happy birthday.
Its truly astonishing to be able to have witnessed true greatness on the basketball court. Yes, there were many NBA greats before him and there will be many more to follow… but when you think of the game of basketball (and even sneakers) the first thing that enters your mind is ‘Air Jordan’.
Not only was he a huge influence to many who share the love for the game, but he is also the reason many of us are here right now; checking sneaker blogs, camping out in front of retail stores come hell or high water, roaming eBay for our holy grail or just sitting on the couch watching NBA Gametime with that fresh new pair sitting on your lap enjoying the sweet victory of adding just one more pair to the lineup. From the moment they were ‘Banned’ to the second they first sold out, we do it all because of him.
Happy 48th MJ!
Share your stories of your most memorable MJ moment, whether its an on court memory or sneaker shopping adventure, let us know how influential the G.O.A.T. has been in your life.
