Larry Johnson was going to be the future of basketball. Sure, a lot of people were, but LJ was different. He had the charisma, he had the gold tooth, and oh man did he have the game. He signed with Converse straight out of UNLV, and a scrapped commercial had his elders giving him the ultimate blessing - Larry Bird giving his first name, Magic Johnson his last. He would be the one to put Converse back in their rightful place atop the game. Well, all that didn't quite work out, but his Converse Aerojam sure was dope.
