Scottie always got outshined by MJ whether it was his play on the hardwood *pause* or his kicks on the court. Jordan still trumped Pip in the '96 Finals but his sidekick wasn't too far behind with the newly released Air More Uptempos. Pippen's new weapon of choice was perfect for Chicago's all-black-everything mantra and even with 480 resolution on your TV set you had no problem making out the 'AIR' on the side of his foot — Eastbay phone orders blew up like crazy that June.
