Before Kevin Garnett started making the rounds with footwear companies, the fresh-out-of-high-school star squared up with Michael Jordan in his rookie year wearing the same sneakers as MJ, the Air Jordan XI. KG opted for the Columbias, while Jordan was in the Concords. MJ got the best of the battle by scoring 35 compared to Garnett's 16. Isaiah (J.R.) Rider dropped in 29 for the Wolves and Scottie Pippen grabbed player of the game honors with 29 as the Bulls scooted out of Minnesota with a 103-100 victory.
