While Chicago inspired Air Jordan colorways may be the most coveted of Air Jordans for the masses, the ever elusive player exclusives, whether worn by Michael, Penny Hardaway, Mitch Richmond or Ray Allen are a true collector's grail for sneakerheads. Many great players have laced up player exclusives from Jordan Brand (and many not quite as great) in all sorts of colorways, ranging from mild to wild. We've all seen what MJ has worn, time and time again, but what if his career path took him on a tour of the other 28 teams in the NBA? One of our Twitter followers suggested we take a look at the other possibilities for MJ, should he have played on any or all of the remaining teams in the league. We started from the bottom (sorry, Orlando), and worked our way from the Air Jordan XX8 in a subtle Magic colorway all the way to the world champs, the Miami Heat who received an Air Jordan I that could have made D-Wade stay. Check out the Air Jordans For Every NBA Team Michael Jordan Didn't Play For and let us know which team got the best of the new makeups.
