Air Jordan XII "White/Varsity Red-Black" 

Issue Date: 3/10/1997 

Mike didn't even go animated in Space Jam but SI featured Jordan with some well-executed Jordan XIIs on the cover posing the question whether the Bulls dynasty was bad for the league — we think David Stern learned the answer to that one quickly a few years later. His fellow 'toons? Charles Barkley, Shaq, Grant Hill and Patrick Ewing in the air, Gary Payton on the ground. GP must have loved that.
