Shoe: Air Jordan XVI

Year: 2001

Let’s not kid ourselves. Michael Jordan isn’t walking through that door. If he did, and deemed our court worthy of his presence, it would be a display of snarling competitiveness distributed evenly amongst men, women, and children. The sick and the elderly could have some too, but they’d have to wait until next run. So yes, it’s pure fantasy. But maybe, just maybe, our common love of the game would allow him to take it easy on us.
