The 10 Most Iconic NBA Playoff Sneaker Matchups of All Time

Air Jordan I vs. Reebok BB 5600 

Players: Michael Jordan vs. Dennis Johnson
Year: 1986

Bird basically called Jordan the second coming on the court but fortunately for Larry Legend, the defensive assignment went to Dennis Johnson throughout most of the series. Johnson tooled up with the Massachusetts-based Reebok, perfect Boston pride. That big looping side panel kept them locked in, and gave billboard-size space for the new kid on the block to represent. And Michael, well you already know about the Is.
