9. Air Jordan III "Fire Red"
When They Should Release: April 28, 2013 (25th anniversary of Mike dropping 50 in them in Game One of the 1988 first round against the Cavaliers)
The True Blues could use a "Nike Air" refresher as well, but the Fire Red IIIs were an on-court colorway, which should always serve as the tiebreaker. (Yes, Mike wore True Blues as a Wizard. No, that doesn't really count.) Even better, Mike wore the Fire Red IIIs in the playoffs as he earned his first series victory (over - of course - the Cavaliers).
